I installed Google Toolbar in my Firefox browser. It has a nice "blog this!" link so I can leap straight into Blogger and post these profound thoughts and pearls of wisdom for the Internet to see.
It remains to be seen if this little button in my toolbar will replace my beloved Blogger widget, because there is something oh so satisfying about using widgets. I really can't put my finger on what it is, except to say that I think I may have formed some kind of dependency on them.
