Today's question- Blog Widgets. Do you use them? Do you have them on your blog? Do you know what I'm talking about? :-) A blog widget is that list of books "From my LibraryThing" and such, that you'll sometimes see on someone's sidebar. If you use it, do all of your books show up or do you have it set to only show certain books? Do you have a search widget, which would allow your blog readers to search your library? Have you ever made a photomosaic of your book covers? You can find widgets and photomosaic information on the "Tools" tab in LibraryThing.
My answer: On Boston Bibliophile, I have a regular blog widget on my blog, which draws information from my entire library. I think it's fun to show my readers a little bit of what I have in my library and I like how it changes each time the page is refreshed. On my craft blog, I have set up a blog widget that only draws from books I've tagged "crafts". Makes sense to me!
