It’s no secret that the most popular way to get ideas for your blog is by reading other blogs. I recently stumbled across a blog that was using the exact functionality that I had been trying to implement on my blog. Lucky for me (and you) it’s a simple third-party plug-in that works well with all blog platforms.
The customizable Wibiya toolbar adds several useful tools to your blog, many which have the ability to increase the time people spend on your site. Choose to add a search box, a translation tool that can convert your site into 10 different languages, a pop-up notification box (very useful in getting regular reader’s attention) and a Twitter dashboard that displays recent Tweets and @ messages.
Check out the Wibiya bar installed on my career blog.
Buttons also allow readers to subscribe to your RSS feed, view recent posts or select a random post to peruse.
Logging in lets you view additional statistics. Among them: how many blog posts were shared on social networks, how many posts were translated, the number of Tweets read and more.
You can also add 12,000 Web-based games to your website via HeyZap.
