This tutorial is to help the new bloggers who are not aware of the blogger settings to add widgets or gadgets. Since I’m using a custom template that supports adding widgets in the sidebar, header, and footer, my blogger layout may look different than others. But the method to add the widget is the same. If you are new to blogging, I recommend you to read, Giving Professional look to blogger, Running your blog on a custom Domain, Creating Posts and Pages in blogger, Adding custom Robots.txt.

What are Gadgets or Widgets?

A widget is a stand-alone application embedded into third-party sites, e.g. a webpage, blog, or profile on a social media site. For example, widgets are used to add contents like Facebook like boxes, Google + badges, Popular contents, recent comments, etc, on a Blogger blog. Using HTML/JS gadget, any type of HTML, Javascript and CSS snippets can be added.

In the layout page, at the preferred position, click “Add a Gadget“. Depending on the theme you are using the layout may differ. Some themes support adding gadgets to a custom position but some are not. Once you click “Add a Gadget”, a popup opens. Select the gadget you want to add. Since I’m using a custom template my blogger layout looks different based on the template. It may look different in yours. But the method to add the Gadget is the same.
