Widgets are used by some blogging applications, such as WordPress, to enable bloggers to customize the appearance and content of their blogs without CSS, HTML or other coding knowledge.

For example, some blog theme designs are widget-ready meaning elements in the sidebars and possibly in the footer and header can be added, deleted, and edited using a simple click-and-drag or point-and-click system, so the blogger does not have to make changes to the theme's original CSS files to add elements like text boxes, images, recent posts, recent comments, blogrolls, and so on to their blog's sidebar, etc.
