5 Widgets I selected
In order to properly install the widgets into my class blog, I have did a little exploring and getting use to the Fox MIS community site. Although, I have a bit of experience in term of using the blog, I am still fairly new to its functionalities. After a few clicks here and there, I finally figure out how to install widgets into my blog! Well, what is widget anyway? It’s basically movable and sharable mini-applications. Each blogger will have reason for using the widget they selected. In the end, it’s to enhance the experience and traffic on your site.Widgets are easy and simple way to add flare to your blog. Whether you like to display the number of currently online visitors or show a list of your favorite links, you can do it with widgets.
Here are the steps
(1) Go to your dashboard
(2) To the left of the dashboard menu will be a list of options, click on “appearance”
(3) Then click on “widgets” and start adding the one you like
(4) To add the widgets to your page, you can drag the widget you want to the right sidebar
Widgets I pick and why
(1) blogroll – This is to simply showcase some of the few favorite websites of mine. Besides all of my blog posts, these links on the side will definitely attract visitors to click on. It will also give you a taste of what I like.
(2) search – The search bar is to easily find topic that are of interest to you that I may write about. (tag may help) It’s allow visitors to search for specific content within the confines of my blog. I also purposely put it first on the list of widget.
(3) archives – A collection of blog that is categorized by the month and how many post within that month. I just want to look back on the post later. And maybe, readers would want to go back, too – that if they like what I have currently.
(4) tag – In my opinion, one of the more powerful and underutilized blogging tools is the ability to tag your posts. By using tags I can provide a more granular way to break down the content on the blog. This break down can provide alternate navigation paths to the content for both humans and search engines. I figure it would be useful.
(5) google’s analytic – I am just curious.
