I have to say, I have been mentally blocking out the widgets on other websites while I am surfing. I never look at the additional, annoying stuff outside out what I am searching for. When I am shopping, Target has grabbed my attention to divert me from where I was, usually to a dead end. They are mostly a distraction and a nuisance. Even the one that I chose (hoping to discover a new artist) is too big and makes the page look a little messy. On the other hand, I like the surprise element of seeing something new every time I open my blog.


  1. The fact that some widgets are too big is annoying. Some are adjustable. Your width on the right is 215 pixels. You really don't want to exceed that.

    Another option is to add the widget to a post instead of to the layout.

    Finally, if you really don't like it. You could delete it.

  2. I like the Latin/Spanish Artist of the Day widget. You may discover some great works to share with your class. This would be a great widget for a class website!
