Which widgets?

A common question I have received from people who are in the process of starting a blog is, which widgets should I use in my blog?  This is a great question since you want your blog to be useful but not be overwhelming with widgets and things all over the blog.

In my opinion the most important widgets would be social media sharing buttons such as: Facebook, Twitter, Digg and Delicious.  This widgets will allow posts that readers like to be shared throughout the social media sites and receive more traffic in the process.  Along with these I believe an RSS feed is a must for any blog.  This will allow people to subscribe to your blog.

After the widgets above are added you can look through and find a few more that are useful for your target market.  This will be different from each market but the most important thing is to not add to many things to your blog.  You want your blog to be easy to navigate and find the useful posts readers are looking for.

What widgets do you like to use or see on blogs?
