    Isn’t there a “tag list” widget I can use instead of the “tag cloud”?
    What’s the matter with this “tag cloud” craze, anyway? A simple list, ordered by tag popularity would do just fine and would not spoil the neat, uncluttered appearance I want to achieve (as a tag cloud would).
    I would appreciate any help on this, especially since I’m a newbie in WordPress.

    (NOTE: my blog is NOT a self-hosted blog, so I suppose I cannot use plugins).

    There isn’t such a widget in WP.com. If you want a linear list, use Categories or make a text widget and put the tag list in by hand..

    You can create a custom menu, add all your tags to it, save the menu, add a Custom Menu widget to your sidebar, select the menu you created, save. See here:

    In wordpress.com blogs you can’t use plugins.
