New Toys

As I have been reading other blogs, I see some of the cool things that they have. I think, "I would be so much cooler if I added something like that to my blog." Most of the time I have no clue about how to add these cool things which is why I pretty much remain uncool. But I was playing around last night and added a counter and a visitor locator. You can make me appear to be an internationally known writer by e-mailing all of your friends around the world and asking them to stop by and visit for a few moments.

I toyed with the idea of the Bush days in office countdown widget, but decided against anything that might be offensive to some. I don't want for anybody to feel unwelcome. After all, I did vote for the guy...once!

I'll continue to visit other sites with my usual blog envy and dream of the day when I can be as cool as David Stone, John Carr and all of my other blogging heroes!

All you really need is the ClusterMaps and the Recent Visitors widgets...both are nice. I have both a visitor counter and a ClusterMaps counter, which for some reason don't give the same number of hits on the blog...but the map is neat, anyhow. I'm always amazed that I have readers in places like China and India.

I too am uncool. I need to get me one of those cluster maps...if only I knew where to start...

Serina Hope, just click on the map on this page and it will take you to the link. (I did it from Bilbo's page!)
