  1. I was searching for such a widget..Thanx man

  2. @anonymous happy to know that it helped you :-)

  3. Is there anything like this for a blog?

  4. I was so excited and followed your clear instructions exactly..but this won't work correctly for me. The widget causes my twitter feed to disappear entirely from my right sidebar when placed there. If placed on the left sidebar, it causes the main body of my pages to disappear entirely and a gap to show up at the very top of my pages. On either sidebar, it also appears as dead text only. This reads: 'Follow on Google +' then 'Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected t_string, expecting t_old_function or t_function or t_var or '}' in /home/content/j/a/d/jademay/html/wp-content/plugins/googlecards/googleCardClass.php on line 25'
