“widgetized” my theme to add recent comments and google search to sidebar

I’ve been receiving some cool comments on some of my older posts, so I’ve decided to add a Recent Comments display to the sidebar. To do this I actually went ahead and “widgetized” my theme, it turned out to be really easy to do. So now I can dynamically drag and drop stuff into the sidebar when I feel like it. 😀

My Flickr badge didn’t show up right in a text widget, so I plugged in Erik Rasmussen’s Flickr badge widget, it’s really easy to setup. In addition to the recent comments display, I’ve also added a Google box to search this blog there, it might or might not work better than the WordPress search at the bottom, not sure… give it a try…

Also, I’ve deleted the blogroll and I’m now pointing to my del.icio.us for my links, this makes it easier for me and you won’t see a huge list of links at the sidebar…
