Widgets

Depending on the WordPress theme you choose, you can add widgets to a variety of places on your blog. For example, some themes allow you to add widgets in multiple sidebars, while others only offer one sidebar. Furthermore, some themes provide widget-ready footers, but others do not.
 
Regardless of what theme you use on your blog, the process of adding widgets to your blog is always the same, thanks to the easy drag-and-drop function you can access through the Widgets link in the Appearance section of your WordPress dashboard left menu, as shown in Figure 8-4.
