Once again my goodreads widget is not showing up. for the second time this week. is there something wrong with the support or is this something you are no longer able to provide support for. either way please respond to this because this is becoming a regular occurrence and it is rather inconveniencing.
In many (most) cases, what can cause this is the server at goodreads being very busy or possibly not responding when WordPress tries to get the information to display in the widget. The same thing can happen with the Flickr widget. Many times this is not something that is in the control of WordPress.
