What Do I Put In My Sidebars?

Often times when I am working with clients, I am asked for suggestions about what to put in the sidebars.

I have compiled two lists. The first list is what I would consider to be the most important things. The second list depends largely on your specific blog and what you hope to accomplish with it.

Items from either of these lists could also go in a footer, if you are wondering what to put down there on the bottom of your page.
