10 Essential Blogger Plugins and Blogger Widgets

Blogger one of the widely used blogging platform, and a favorite of mine. When it comes to plugins and widgets availability, there are numerous available over the Internet, but choosing the best is little tricky. 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.

essential blogger plugins and widgets

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.

3. Subscribe Widget: Every blog needs to have a social profile to get the users stay updated with the blog updates. Most of the template comes with a subscribe widget on the sidebar and some don’t. If your template doesn’t have a subscribe widget, you can make use of this.

4. Recent Post With Thumbnails: One of the popular blogger widgets, created by Aneesh. Easy to customize and easy to integrate on your blogs.

5. Featured Content Slider: An elegant featured content slider from bloggermint. Easy to integrate into blogger and compatible with all major browsers.

6. MintShare: A Pure CSS3 and HTML based social share widget in five different variant from our Bloggermint labs.

7. Accordin: A unique blogger widget from Abu Farhan. This will show or hide your widget on your sidebar. A first of its kind for blogger.

8. Recent Post With Thumbnail and Simple Spy: Many would have seen simple spy (fade in post scoller) in some design, this widget makes that possible with blogger blogs.

9. Random Rotating Banner: One of the best money making widget, with easy to customize options. You can even customize the number of ads to be rotated. What I noted about this tool was, you need a little bit of modification for your template to make it work.

10. Twitter Follow Us badge: Yet another blogger gadget, Twitter follow badge from our labs. With one click, your able to add the floating Twitter follow us badge on your blog

There may be more useful plugins and widgets around the web and I have not included some common plugins like page navigation, which is very common. Drop in your comments for best blogger plugins or widgets according to you and do join Bloggermint Answers community to share your voice with us.

    GOLD!!! I am in the process of designing a website on blogger right now, making it static, instead of dynamic pages. The author bio and rotating banner are exactly what I was looking for. I’m definitely see what else is on here.

    Nice job. Keep it up.

  22. I think you should add nRelate’s Related Content plug-in to this list. I have used this on a number of my WordPress blogs and they recently released a version for Blogger that looks great. You can learn more about the plug-in here:

    Full disclosure: I am friends with the founders so I am a little biased in this recommendation but honestly, it is a great plug-in that has gotten me some solid results. Thank you!

    The one penalty you suffer from using blogger is a lack of pre-made widgets but I can look past that for the simplicity of the interface.

    I know this post is rather old but it’s never too late to thank someone for a good job done in my opinion so thank you. :)
