LinkWithin Widget


Okay, I'm just tooooo excited to not post about this...

I happened to be checking out my "Blogs I Learn From" feed, to see the new posts fellow bloggers had put up. While I was visiting the fabulous A Beach Cottage, I noticed something below the most recent post.

At the end of each post, it read: "You may also like these stories:" followed by three mini photos, and the blog titles from past posts that go with them. Below the photos and titles was a link that read: "What is LinkWithin?"

I clicked the link to find out more, but was a little doubtful that I could use it because A Beach Cottage is created on typepad rather than blogger. I'm happy to report that I was wrong!

The LinkWithin widget has been created for fairly universal blog use - you simply select the platform you're using and the proper gadget/programming is selected for you...quite slick. If you want to try this for yourself, just click the link above (or below) and follow the prompts. It's that easy, and just looks so great! Plus, it helps keep past posts (which contain VERY important information!) from being forgotten.

See....

Sarah-
I'm so glad I discovered this widget on your site. It's so easy, but add such techie sophistication!

Blair-
I know, right? With just a few clicks, I get to feel all proud of my fancy blog. I'm about to switch templates though, so I might need to reinstall - hope this new widget will still work on the updated blog.

Isn't it too fabulous? I can't believe we get to use these types of widgets completely for free. I'm in geek heaven!

Cool! I just added the widget to our blog this morning, and we already have had 32 clicks back into our archives. I'd say that's a pretty darned effective tool.

Thanks for sharing!

I checked out your blog's latest post today, and noticed that you also had LinkWithin, but didn't realize you'd discovered it on my site! Yay - it's amazing how fast a killer app spreads! Happy Trails.
