This post is intended for those who attended one of my sessions at the Fort Bend Leadership Institute.
If you are interested in adding to your iGoogle page some of the same gadgets I have on mine, here is an easy way to get them. As you click each link, you will be taken to a page that describes the gadget and lets you click a button to automatically add it to your iGoogle page.
Remember the Milk
Bit.ly URL Shortener
MapQuest Driving Directions
Area/Zip Code Lookup

Here is how to make iGoogle your homepage.
If you wish to use a Netvibes page, click the green “Add content” button at the top of the screen. Clicking on “Essential widgets: will provide several screen of popular widgets from which to choose.
Also, click on “Browse categories:.” Set the drop-downs to “United States,” “Recently popular first,” and “Applications.” Choose from each of the categories the widgets you wish to have. I have found that some widgets will be listed on the screen which are no longer available.
