Blog Add-ons

A few people have asked me about how to add those fancy gadgets on one's blog so I thought I should just leave a post here about it..

There are lots of professional blogs out there but I'm not one of them.. so what I do is very simple:

Step 1: Add a Gadget
Go to Blogger > Design > Page Elements and click "Add a Gadget"

Step 2: Select the Gadget you like
Some standard features like "Blog Stats", "Popular Posts", "Labels" etc are provided by blogger. When in doubt, click on "Most Popular" and select from there

Step 3: Select HTML/JavaScript if you want to add some third party gadgets

Step 4: Paste the codes from third party gadgets
After you have selected this, paste the html codes given from those third party gadgets

The ones I use on my blog (and they are all free although you may need to register to get them) are from:
http://feedjit.com/ - for the live traffic feed
http://www.easyhitcounter.com/ - for the traffic counter
http://www.wowzio.com for the photo gallery
http://www.linkwithin.com/ - for the "You may also like" feature
http://daisypath.com/ - for my anniversary ticker

So there you go.. very simple steps from OpenKitchenConcept. Hope this helps!

Isn't it? This is a kitchen in a show house.. I supposed a real kitchen would be much more messy! Like mine! :P

I was going to ask if this is your kitchen cos I like how it opens out to the outdoors.

Anyway thanks for the information!

Ting, Malar, I wish that I can say that's my kitchen... but it isn't.. hopefully, I'd have a kitchen like that in future... :)

Avin, Malar, no thanks at all! I have very few pics of my place in my blog actually. Usually too messy to take pictures!!
