Blogger one of the widely used blogging platform, and a favorite of mine.

So here is our collection of 10 best blogger plugins and widgets, which takes blogger a step ahead in blogging. Lets get into serious blogging.
1. Author Info Widget: Similar to WordPress author card info which is displayed at the end of the post, Author Info Widget, will displays author bio at the end of each post for Blogger users.
2. Google Buzz Share Count Button: Google Buzz is buzzing up these days, this plugin will show counter for the Buzz share button as like the counter button which we see in Mashable.
