To add more functionality to your WordPress site, you can add plug-ins. It is called widgets.
What is widget?
Widgets are WordPress Plugins that add visitor visual and interactivity options and features, such as sidebar widgets for post categories, tag clouds, navigation, search, etc.
Widgets require no code experience or expertise. They can be added, removed, and rearranged on the WordPress Administration Appearance > Widgets panel.
However be careful installing a lot of plug-ins, some of them do not work properly, it may break the site. The hint is, look at the rating before installing.
These are the widgets I can recommend it.
