Need ideas for sidebar (6 posts)

    I'm looking to have some of the basic things in my sidebar (rss, search, google ad, etc.), but I also want something that could either add to the site visually, or add some interactivity, like a poll or something. Does anyone have any ideas or plugins in mind?

    Everything on the site right now is just for sample, but I'm looking to have articles up within the week.

    polls are nice, theres lots of stuff like weather widgets or status plugins, like i have on my blog where you can add your own status items to make them relevant to your blog

    you can see it in action on my sadly neglected blog, at the bottom http://www.justastupidgirl.com/

    I'll keep those status plugins in mind. I like the setup on your site, too.

    You have to take a look at the footer. In FF the footer is to large, or the sidebar is to small.

    Geld, the body was indented, check out the header box. I'll take a look at that forum, thanks for the link, sun.

    sun is just spamming with links to his forums, it won't be helpful to you.

    One thing I wanted to add, a recent posts widget is always a good idea, you want to be thinking about keeping your viewers moving around the site, a recent posts or random posts plugin is good for that.
