I’m trying out a new plug-in called Stray Quotes. You can see it in the left sidebar under the categories drop-down, under the head “Duly Quoted.” The plug-in can function as a widget. It displays a random quote from a user-created list (refreshing the page will likely produce a new quote). Basic html will generate links, etc. I’m using it here as the creator intended, to display a random quote. But it could also display any kind of random link, text, or even image (I’m not sure what length limitations it may have).
For now I’ve taken down the “now reading” plug-in, because I haven’t updated it in a while. Once I do that I may bring it back.
