I have been experimenting with widgets at the WidgetBox.com site and I have created two new ones.
The first one is a small search box that invokes a custom search at Rollyo for News and Current Events. It searches a number of news sites for stories based on the search term you entered. It's called News from Rollyo and you can get it or try it out by clicking on this link which will take you directly to the page at WidgetBox.
The second one provides local traffic alerts and road conditions based on data from Yahoo! You can get it or play with it by clicking this link.
Both of these widgets can be used in the sidebar of your blog or anywhere else you would like to place them.
