I never remember what the difference between the 2 is. I think these are some neat ones that I'm sure lots of people already use, but just in case I'm going to put them here. :)

If you have an account with Feedburner you can make a little headline widget to post anywhere you want.
1. So after you sign up with Feedburner you go to the section labelled Publicize.
2. Click on the text to the left that says Hideline Animator
3. After that add your feed URL and the rest is simple. Just change things to your liking and you end up with something like this displaying the last few headlines you have made.

I can think of a few places to put something like this. On a person's website, a different blog, or even if it is allowed, in a signature on a message board. If anyone has any questions or problems with making one of these please let me know.

And another little widget is at Springwidgets. You do have to register to use this. On the home page to the left there is a box that says "Express Widget", click there. Enter your feed or blog URL and click submit. You can customize the widget to look the way you want. I have seen a few with an image in the header that look nice. Once you are happy with the way that looks hit "Publish My Widget" and you end up with something looking like this:

Again good to use on your website if you want more than the headlines listed and only have a limited area available.

With the AECO above, I think its the first time that I have ever used the neon pink from my pencils.

Todays Scottish word:
1) freen

Answer to yesterdays Scottish words:
1) Teuchter is a term to refer to a person from a rural area. It can be derogatory.
2) Stovies is just potatoes and meat mixed together. :) Really nice when covered with pastry.
