    Cool Add Ons/Widgets For Your Site
    I'm finally working on a personal site (non affiliate) and was wondering if anybody uses any cool add ons for your own personal site, blog or even affiliate site. I've found some sites, just checking around. My editor has some stuff. I'm thinking along the lines of joke of the day, something music related, tags/clouds (usually for blogs) finance updates, amber alert, draw on your site, kind of stuff.

    Assuming it is OK to post the link here, I use http://www.freesticky.com/stickyweb/
    The site gives you sources for various free content stuff offered around the web.

    For example, on a Movies site I have, I used the site to find a java script link that every week shows the top 5 box office results. On a baseball team site I also have regularly updated baseball news from a link I found on the site.

    Yeah it's ok to post. Somebody messaged me this link, with some widgets:

    Yahoo Finance modules:

    I saw some Pagan stuff on the freesticky site Ssanf might like.

    Some of these give me some ideas to wrap some content around or something. Some sticky possibilities.

    Not an add on but interesting link
    This is not an add on but a very interesting link

    UK surname profiler - if you have a personal, family or genealogy based site and a Scots or English heritage, it is fantastic. It based on elecoral enrollments 1888 and 1998

    http://www.spatial-literacy.org/UCLnames/default.aspx

    Scarily good at pinpointing place of origin for English, Scots and Welsh names ( no Irish ). I ran all my family names and my in laws names and found surprisingly (not) one branch of the familty had managed to spread from one small village in the Pennines to the next biggest town - wow thank goodness I a manged to make it the the other end of the earth.

    Just bumping this old thread because I found a cool widget site:

    http://www.widgetbox.com/

    Lots of cool stuff, over 27,000.

    They got this cool thing, call Make A Blidget. Just type in your blog url and it makes a widget for you that other people can grab and put on their site.

    As I was reading through the beginning of this thread, I was thinking about the same site. Good thing I read all the way through before I posted a link to WidgetBox.
