Thursday 13 - Go Go Google Gadgets

Gadgets powered by Google are miniature objects created by users that that can be placed on your iGoogle homepage. Google is so good at this stuff I’m hoping they’ll move in and run my life. Thirteen of my favorite gadgets on my iGoogle pages include:

:: A reader link to 43 Folders
:: Recipe links to: Simply Recipes, My Recipies and CD Kitchen's crockpot recipes
:: Thinkmap's Visual Thesaurus to help improve my vocabulary.
:: National Geographic's Picture of the Day – incredibly inspiring
:: A reader link to Zen Habits. This site rocks my world.
:: A reader link to Lifehack because there is so much I don’t know.
:: Zytu's Interesting Photos of the Day from Flickr.
:: A weight Watchers point calendar (I joined WW last week)
:: Mark Mason's Daily Photo Tip
:: Brain candy for Artist of the Day
:: WikiHow's How to of the Day
:: My Google calendar and
:: Comedy Central's Joke of the Day. I am totally addicted to blonde jokes.

I’m sure I’m missing some great ones. Are there any you recommend? Which ones can you not live without?

Please check back here tomorrow when I post
my interview with Anne Glamore of
My Tiny Kingdom!

Now you are going to make me go look at mine. What a great TT idea. Have a great day. :)

Penelope Anne said...

I guess I need to explore more of what I can do with Google....haven't even succumbed to Google reader yet.
Great list.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Nope. I don't use any of them. Starting down that road is trouble. As it is, I'm glad I don't know how to put the live Yellowstone feed from Old Faithful on more permanently.

Happy TT!

Robin said...

A daily photo tip? I'll have to check that out.

Sandy Carlson said...

I love Google, too. I have to check out these gadgets. Thanks for highlighting them.

Now I have to go set up mine, this looks so cool!

Thanks for visiting my TT.

BTW, I was a middle school teacher for years!! I still don't miss those school pictures! You should line them all up from year one until now to do a post....that would be fun to see.

SusieJ said...

OK, I just added the Zen Habbits, LifeHack, Mark Raymond and the WikiHow to my google page, thanks to you.

I have the phases of the moon, and for some strange reason, top stories from the Discovery Channel?

I also have the To Do List.

I'm going to have to pay more attention. I just go right past the google homepage to my yahoo (old school, I know) and my blog. I really enjoyed your list.

Smiler said...

I'm really not exploiting all the possibilities on Google enough. But then, I signed up for Google reader and always forget to go to my page! I guess I like the old school way of going to the actual pages.

Btw, I just realized I let you request slip. I'll look into it and let you know when I'm done.
