You can now put any Pageflakes Flake (aka Widgets) on your blog or websites! Flakes are fully functional feature rich customizable widgets which you can now take-away with you outside Pageflakes and eat it anywhere you like. There are so many ways you can use the flakes to enrich your blog and websites. I will try to explain some of the cool ways to make really good use of some cool flakes.

Let's get into business

You can maintain a family event calendar or group events on a Calendar flake and then put it up on your website for others to see and participate.
Share files with others
Your blog does not let you share files? No worries, put a Box.net flake on your blog and allow others to download files from it. It's so easy to share files with this cool flake. You can have 1GB free storage right on your blog or website.
Your office on the web
You can put your to-do-list, calendar and mail flake anywhere you like in order to have a "mobile office" for you. But the "Web Office" is incomplete without a powerful authoring tool. Here you go, the great "Notepad" flake. Don't underestimate this flake judging by its size. I have a whole Codeproject article inside it. And that's not all it can hold. Click on the "open" button and see what else I have there. You can only read the files, but I see a full fledged WYSIWYG Html Editor here.
You can show your favorite photos from Flickr by putting a Flickr flake on your website. See my favorite photos:

You might say, "Big Deal, Google did it long time back." You're wrong. Google Widgets are throw away widgets. They cannot contain your data and show it on another website. You cannot have a to-do-list populated with your tasks and put it on another website. But Pageflakes can. The flakes you put on another website or on your blog are the very flake that is running on your Pageflakes page. If you modify the flake from Pageflakes, others can see the latest data from your blog. It also works the opposite way. You can work on the flake right from your blog or website. You need not go to Pageflakes in order to access the flake. If you don't like to work on Pageflakes all the time, then just put the flake that you need on your website and work from there.
