Adding WordPress Widgets

Today i thought of giving my blog a makeover by changing themes.
I was about to start browsing when i noticed “widgets”  and started browsing through the available widgets.I tried all of them one by one was pretty impressed by WordPress’s features.
It is quite straightforward to add widgets to your WP blog you go to [yourBlogName].wordpress.com/wp-admin/widgets.php.
You can see the description of widgets below their name.Drag and drop them in the sidebar saying “sidebar1”. Customise the widget and click Save. Repeat this for all your desired widgets. You can change their order by picking up and arranging them.

If you are not OK with drag and drop thing open this page in accessibility mode by going to: [yourBlogName].wordpress.com/wp-admin/widgets.php?widgets-access=on
Now there will be an add button next to each widget, which will add them to your site.

You can notice the few widgets that i have put on the left hand side of the screen.
