I love Widgets!!! I think they're about the coolest thing since sliced bread *snort*!
In New Blogger, widgets are the main method of moving elements around on your blog page. These cute little critters that sound like something out of the Wizard of Oz movie, have two dimensions. They are text units and they are visual moveable units.
To meet these little critters, go to the Page Element tab, in the screenshot below!
As a textual unit, a widget can be one of many types. Here is a picture of the list of different kinds of widgets that you can make on the Page Element page. You add a widget by click on the "add a page element" dotted rectangle that you see in the second picture below.
And as a visual unit, you can move them around the page at will by dragging and dropping them where you want them to be.
And even the elements at the bottom of your posts are a widget and can be edited. The large box in the center of the above picture is a post box, but I didn't get a shot of the edit button on the right hand side of the post box. You click that and you open the box below, where you can change the details at the bottom of the post!
I LOVE WIDGETS!!!!
