One of the reasons WordPress is such a good way to create a website is because it’s easy to customize. Take Widgets, for example, which make adding new features to your sidebar and other areas of your site as easy as dragging and dropping a few boxes around.
The kind of things you can add to your website or blog with widgets include:
* Search boxes
* Newsletter subscription forms
* Automatically updating lists of recent posts
* Google AdSense / banner ad code
Take a look at the video for a quick start guide to using WordPress Widgets.
