I've been trying to link my professional art website with my blogs, both my art blog and my immortality blog. Without either spending a million hours with html and without cluttering up my simple layout. I used twitters widgets and BAM! perfect. I can update my website, and have links to my blog in a hot second by simply posting on twitter.
While twitter's function for drawing people to my websites is only minimal, the ability to use their widgets on my own blogs, on my website and in other places makes it an indespensable tool. The fact that I attempted to try this out, and it took me 5 minutes to get it up and tweeked to perfection is just too darn cool.
