make your own widget

Have you ever put a widget (or gadget, as they are sometimes called) on a blog or Web page? A widget allows me to give you access or interaction with particular information or applications. For example, to the right on this blog you will find a Creative Commons widget. To the left, you’ll find a VodPod widget. On the former, you can see my terms for sharing information on this blog; on the latter, you will be able to play the most recent videos added to my “pod.”

You can also create your own custom widgets, which I recently did to place my blog in a social networking site. One of the tools for creating custom widgets is called Widgetbox. Have you found others that work well? Feel free to post them here in the Comments.
