Want to create your own embeddable content? Flashy storytime advert? Library news flash widget? Then you must try Sprout, an incredibly easy and totally awesome "widget" builder–although for our purposes, these are known as "Sprouts". Without really putting too much work into it, I created a Sprout of my library’s blog, @thelibrary, and embedded it here:
Select a few features, change the color, adjust the font, publish it and viola, you get your own homegrown Sprout code to embed and/or post to Facebook, MySpace or several other networks. Think of the possibilities and go for it!
