I have added a couple of widgets on my index page as follows.
· Twitter - I use this to share what's going on with me and also stuff that's of interest to me. It's also on my MySpace. I like the micro-blogging aspect of it. And I love being able to update it via text and not just online.
· Good Reads - This is a bookshelf of some of the books I've read. I don't really have time to review books, but I do rate them!
