Hi,I really like your blog because I love wikipedia. I was wondering if you could blog about this widget I have here. It's a Wikipedia Search Bar for your blog.thanks so much!-John Smith
Hey, that's pretty cool. (You should make the "+- Get this Widget" link much bigger, though; people are going to miss it.)
