There seem to be many bloggers out there who think that the more gadgets they have in their blog sidebars the better. There are those blogs filled with dozens of bright and colorful banners and gadgets that it’s quite hard to focus on the actual blog content.
MP3 players are one of the lamest of these. They suck your bandwidth and can become a reason not to visit that blog again. To make the matters worse, the pause buttons of some of these players can’t be found no matter how hard you try. :/
And why would anyone put up a Clock gadget on their blog? Seriously!
And then there are those long FB fan page gadgets filled with lots of faces.
Even a big visitors count banner isn’t necessary. Okay, I have a small one in mine as well, but come to think of it, what would anyone gain from that except for some ego boost to the blogger himself?
