If you are a fan of drop down lists or category “tag clouds” WordPress.com now has options for both.
Using two new widgets added to WordPress.com you can now customize your blog and maybe even save a fair amount of sidebar space. I am not really a fan of either system. I think tag clouds look messy, especially in a sidebar, and drop down lists are not quick and easy to navigate with.
Still, if you are a fan, then you’ll be happy. Check out the WordPress.com blog for more details.
