Gewgaws and Gizzwickies

from Emily Bryan . . .

There are tons of gadgets on the internet now. In a quick search the other day, I ran across this "blidget"--a widget that features a feed from my personal blog. I'm still not sure if it works quite as I expected, but it's visually interesting and if you click on the pics, it should take you to my blog (which features my real life love story since today is my wedding anniversary!). I say should because sometimes, I end up back on the widget's creation site. Let me know where it takes you.

Some widgets have their own agendas. This one is a countdown to my next release.

Yes, you're reading that right--the fabulous Jennifer Ashley is the headliner of this totally fun holiday anthology.

Some widgets act as calling cards. If you're on Facebook, please friend me.

Others announce that you've taken a poll or signed up for something. I see Angie Fox's Demon Slayer widget everywhere!

What's the coolest online widget you've run across?

Interestin'... I'll have to try these. I'm redesigning my web site and would love my blog fed to the front page.

I've found some interesting widgets, but can never get them to work for some reason--at least, not the way I want them to.

And Happy Anniversary!

Thanks, Jenn.

The techno learning curve has been the hardest thing about being published.

Cool, Emily, it worked for me. Took me right to your site!! I'll have to look into putting it on my new site.

BTW: The cover to your new book is simply beautiful. VERY romantic....
I can't wait to pick up my copy.
Hugs,
