Blogging Tip #10
What about those cute little blogging awards that people give out? Should you add them to your blog? It's hard to say no when someone gives you a gift, and most professional bloggers won't burden you that way. They might offer a badge that you can grab and add to your blog without any pressures. If you do accept these "gifts" find a way to add them without making your blog look too cluttered. Also keep in mind that these third-party widgets can slow down the loading of your blog if you have too many.
