Introduction

You can add widgets to a Blogger (Blogspot) blog, such as a Calendar, RSS feed, etc. To do this you need to use the Layout Option in Blogger and Select Add a Gadget

The list is much more extensive than shown, so to find one you may have to select the "More Gadgets" tab and use the Search. Once you have found a Gadget use the + button on the right to select the widget and save. Note that Review may not enable the Gadget to work.
