Boy, oh boy, I found a great way to procrastinate tonight! I built a widget for Dream of Italy at Widgetbox.com. My hard work is your gain. You can put our widget on your blog, Web site, Facebook page and probably lots of other places I don't know about. I'm new to this widget thing. (You can customize the size and color of the widget so it matches your layout.)
What's a widget? Well, it is a piece of code that can be placed on any Web page that allows you to display the latest stories from Dream of Italy's Blog. It is a great way to keep up on Italian travel news and share it with those who visit your pages. The more information you give your visitors, the more they will come to your site.
I placed the widget on a couple of pages on the main DOI site. Click here and scroll down to see one in action.
And I've already started building a Dream of Italy Facebook App. Be scared, be very scared!
