Weekly Widget : Google Web Elements

Google has made it super easy to add interactivity to your blog. Google Web Elements lets you easily insert calendars, maps, spreadsheets and presentations.

My favorite is the Conversation widget, which allows readers to answer questions or leave comments right on your sidebar. Two drawbacks: (1) commenters need to sign in to Google Friend Connect via their Google, AIM, Yahoo, Netlog, or OpenID account to use the widget and (2) the size of the widget is not fully customizable. Let's try it below. Leave me a comment!
