Quick tip: Using widgets to highlight LiveCloud collections

This is just a quick Monday tip for our LiveCloud bloggers!  If you're using collections to organize your blog posts (and you should be, if you've got a decent amount of content), you can use widgets to highlight certain collections on your home page.

For example, I'm using the general Content widget to show extracts from my personal blog.  But I've got a collection for Baking/Food related posts.  To highlight those posts, I have added another Content widget, renamed it, and have it pulling in only posts from that specific category.  By putting the widget in the side column, it's showing quick links to those posts.

If you get creative, you can use the widgets to really draw your readers into your blog content!

I should also note that Hoop.la online communities have this same functionality!
