15 blogging gadgets and widgets you may want to consider for your blog, but sometimes there is a "GOTCHA" to consider.

I found this article about adding some interesting gadgets and widgets to a blog site. If you have your own link to more interesting gadgets and widgets, please share it in the comments section.

We can never have too many gadgets or widgets.

Wait a minute, yes we can.

I found this proviso under the terms and conditions for the PDF converter which I did not like, so I won't use this particular gadget and I cancelled my registration as well...

6. License of Your Content to Provider. By uploading your content to the Web Site for processing into PDF format, you are granting Provider a royalty-free license for the uploaded content to be processed into PDF format and for that uploaded content to be present on the Web Site server(s) after it has been processed into and exists in PDF format for retrieval by users.

I assume this means that any content that I upload for purposes of converting to a PDF file allows the hosting site royalty free use of the content !!!  Are you kidding me?  Um, (since I attempt to not swear in articles I write, all I'll say is, grrrrrr.)

I don't mean to be nasty but come on, if I write an article and I one day might want to include it in a book, I don't want a third party software company having equal access rights to my original content, ESPECIALLY when their terms of use also include warnings about NOT STEALING THEIR SOFTWARE!

I think what they meant was they have the right to process the original content without being sued by the author, but their wording implies a much broader access to the content.
