Using Gadgets

Other Useful Gadgets:

Translate – The Translate gadget will allow visitors to translate your blog in any language.
Search Box – This gadget allows visitors to search your site content.
Video Bar – The Video Bar gadget will allow you to embed our or your YouTube channel feed on your page.  HATV is a great resource for content.
HTML/JavaScript - You can use this to embed a single video to your page.  If you are running a banner ad about BarleyMax, you could embed a video on BarleyMax to encourage them to click on the ad.

Slideshow – This gadget adds a slideshow of photos to your blog.  By using this gadget, you can feature photos from an event or from HA dishes you have made.
List – The list gadget enables you to create a list of your favorite HA items.  I wouldn’t use links on this list because you may not get credit if they purchase without clicking on your affiliate ads.
Poll –  Get to know your visitors by creating polls.  You can use this information in many different ways.

Gadgets to Avoid:  

If using your site as a Health Minister, I would not recommend using the AdSense Gadget.  This will pull visitors away from the purpose of your site and fill your site with ads that may not fit your mission.
