Feedback Please: Blog Calendars etc

It seems like every blog engine has one – a calendar widget in the side bar. But, does anyone (perhaps other than the blog author) ever use it?

I’m in the process of setting up Fuseblog 2 on my new hosting account, and I’m actually gonna use some of the standard “bloggy” features that I’ve shied away from until now. But, I don’t think I’ve ever used a calendar nav widget on a blog, and I just don’t think it’s a useful thing. I could use that space for something else!

So, what do you think? Please leave a comment! I’d also love any other feedback on blog layout – do you actually read “now reading” and “now listening to” sidebars? Blogrolls? Should comments be on the main page? Do you follow “next post” and “previous post” links, or do you come in from the rss feed?

Thanks in advance!
