Blogger new feature : The followers gadget


Honestly, this new feature reminded me a little bit of the Twitter environment. I say that because I first saw this type of feature at :)  BUT NOW, it’s’s new Followers gadget. This gadget allows you to see who’s following/reading your blog AND has become a fan of it by adding it to their list of favorite blogs to visit.  As you could see above, it uses their avatar as part of the gadget display.

Take a peek at what you see as the blog owner in your blogger dashboard:

A neat summary of how many followers you have AND the ability to “pay-back” by following your followers blogs too.  Now isn’t that useful? :)  

At the dashboard you are given the ability to follow other blogs too, even if they’re not hosted at  Just head on to your dashboard and click “add”, then type in the blog address to quickly add it to your favorites.  If the blog you just followed is hosted at your avatar will be included in that blog’s followers list.

Haven’t seen this added to WordPress 2.7 features yet.  I hope the widget developers can also make a WordPress version soon?
