Tuesday Thingers is hosted by Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner. This week, the topic is widgets:
Do you have a LT widget on your blog? If so, what is your favorite thing about it? Have you had a chance to go see the all new widget building page, and if so, have you built a new widget? If so, what do you like about it?
No, I don't have a LibraryThing widget on my blog. I do have one of those little link bar thingies – if you click on it, it takes you to my LT profile page. And I've got the "Followers" widget provided by Google/Blogger. I did have a Shelfari widget for a while – it showed a bunch of the books on my TBR shelf; but I took it off because it seemed to be slowing down the page-loading time.
I didn't know about the new widget building page – I'll have to give it a look and maybe play with it a little. But I probably won't be putting any more widgets on my blog. I really prefer not to keep a lot of stuff on my blog – sort of prefer the clean and empty look. Of course, you wouldn't suspect that, looking at my cramped and crowded apartment. But at least I can keep my virtual world clutter-free.
I just joined LibraryThing a few weeks ago and am still learning my way around the sight. Didn't even know there were widgets. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

I don't have one, and I don't think I want one.ReplyDelete
I do have the LT widget, and it pulls a list of 5 most-recently added books. I wonder if it's slowing down the page loading. I haven't noticed a difference; give me a shout if you think it's slow :)ReplyDelete
I haven't explored the widget-building option and probably won't change what I have ...

I like the new LT widget and installed it on my blog. They say it will not slow down things and it doesn't appear to.ReplyDelete
Hi Joy!! :) You know, I've removed a few widgets from Amazon from my blog because it bogged down my loading time so badly. I also try to keep my page a little more organized and try to limit my clutter.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week, have you re-styled Your Library lately? ~ Wendi
