You will notice two visible changes to the right-hand side of this blog:
  1. A link to my twitter profile

  2. Played with my feed's settings to redirect all post feed traffic to FeedBurner

The "includable" line in question is the one right after the html tag for your tag cloud widget:
Make sure you have checked the "Expand Widget Templates" box in the Edit HTML page.

French expression of the day:
"C'est mon petit doigt qui me l'a dit": a little bird told me (litt. My little finger told me)
