New Widgets for TypePad

Last week we introduced a baker's dozen of fresh new Widgets to the TypePad Widget Gallery, bringing our current Widget count to more than 45!  Here's what's new:

  • Newsvine adds live, up-to-the-second Newsvine news feeds from the Associated Press to the sidebar of your blog.
  • Bitty Browser is a small browser for the sidebar of your blog.  It can be customized to display any URL or links from Delicious, Digg, Flickr and more.
  • Stylehive allows you to display pictures of your favorite products on your blog
  • SiteMeter's widget allows you to easily install SiteMeter's visitor tracking code, to help you understand the traffic on your blog.
  • Gada.be is metasearch engine that will allow your readers to more easily find (and subscribe to) RSS searches.
  • WhoLinked shows other websites that are linking to your blog.
  • JotSpot's Affiliate Program pays you for traffic that you send to JotSpot, the Application Wiki.
  • BlogBar is a free search engine bar for searching within your site, or across the blogosphere or the web.
  • Clipro allows you to create your own TV show from their video clips, photos and music, and then display it in the sidebar of your blog.
  • Blog Barrel is a traffic networking system designed to give newer blogs a chance to gain exposure while expanding the audience of more popular blogs.
  • Blog Tattoo is a simple but fun Widget that displays a "Kanji" (Japanese/Chinese character) at random on your blog.
  • Andertoons lets you pick topic, click a button, and add a daily cartoon to your blog's sidebar.

And rounding out the lucky thirteen, a Widget that does more than just spruce up your blog...

  • DonorsChoose is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack.  Their Widget can help you raise money for public school teachers and students.

If you haven't installed a Widget yet, check out the screencast to see just how easy it is, and then browse the Widget Gallery to find one (or more) that's right for your blog.  Interested in developing Widgets?  All of our developer documentation is online, and we're always on the lookout for more great Widgets to feature in our Gallery.
