Novice Blogging - Note #25 (Gathering The Masses)

Wednesday, May 25, 2011
I'll admit that the post title sounds a bit like something from a gardening magazine, but of course, it is far from that. I am neither a green thumb nor a flower person. And it is a novice blogging post, so it would mean that it has something to do with blogging, right?

Today, I touch on the subject of little gadgets floating around the blogsite. One gadget which I have found extremely nifty is "Followers", which displays a list of users following your blog. This gadget is powered by Blogger and done through Google Friend Connect.

On your Blogger page, you will need to click on the Design tab, and Add A Gadget. Look through the list until you find one that says Followers.

Once added, save your layout and view your blog. You should find this gadget.

It is always nice to know that you have captured readers with one of your posts. It's even nicer that they liked the post enough to start following your blog.

So what blogs have you started following lately?
