Power of Blog Widgets: Blog Widget Problems and Issues – Part 1

When I first started my weight loss blog, I had no idea on what a widget was, let alone how to utilize one.  Now, what is a blog widget?  It is a small app (like a phone app) that adds functionality to your blog.  The cool thing I learn was that they can be powerful tools, they can help you save time, and they can also cause issues if you are not careful. 

What I mean by issues is this.  If you don’t have the right widgets, they can stomp on each other and the widgets can cause problems.  My Youtube Widget trashed my Twitter Widget, taking down my blog.  At first I thought it was a fluke but when it happened a second time, I realized that it was no fluke.  Now, it has not caused me to stop using blog widgets, I just need to make sure that they play nicely together, with the version of Word Press blog software that I am running.  Now, I am not telling you this to discourage you,  I just need you to keep an open eye, when using widgets or over using them.

Over the next few days I will talk about some category of widgets you may want to consider.
