  1. Since I'm not the geeky type I prefer to use external third party widgets because most of them are really easy to install. I don't find editing Blogspot themes to be all that simple. Your instructions are good for those who can.

    1. You mean those third party widgets where it's just one-click installation like Linkwithin? They're pretty cool too!

      But the advantages of the HTML editing is they're flexible and you get to easily design them to your taste 😉

      Non-Geeky type can still use the third party widgets and enjoy them though

      Thanks for coming here Treathly

    1. Nothing is confusing at all, it just didn't work, if you check the website, you'll see, only the widget title shows but not the related content, so I'm not doing anything wrong.
