Embed Recent Readers widget from MyBlogLog

MyBlogLog provides some nice services for bloggers, like the list of recent readers you often see in some sites. I'm not particularly a big fan of MyBlogLog especially due to the design of their website, but for those who wish to join this community, here's how you can do it:

First of all, you need to have an account on MyBlogLog. After creating an account, go to My Home page inside your account and look for a button called Get widgets (which is actually only one widget right now).

In the next step you can customize (to some degree) your Recent Readers widget. When I say "to some degree" I mean you can choose colors only from a palette. There's no free text color entry (I needed a special color for integrating the widget inside this website).

Next, you have to copy the tracking script from the bottom of the page inside your HTML template for your blog.

And finally, you can take the code for the widget and again put it somewhere inside your HTML template. Here's how the code looks like:

<script type="text/javascript"

Check out how it looks by scrolling down this page and look for the widget in the right part.

That's it!
