Widgets are cool, personalized widgets are better. Last week I did a screencast on how to build a widget for your blog in Sprout Builder. For this post I set up a Seesmic widget, complete with customized background, layout, support for threads, and even built in recording so your users can respond to your videos where ever you are showing the widget.
The other thing to note that I learned this week: Sprout Builder now offers a “pro account” that means you don’t have to show the Sprout bar underneath each widget. It’s free at the moment with a charge likely in the future. I’ve opted to keep the bar, but it’s another compelling reason to give Sprout Builder a shot.
The widget I designed in about 5 minutes on the video, below.
