How to add widget in theme?

Is their any other way to add a custom widget in themes as I have already seen a resource WordPress theme widget but I am not getting exactly what to do as I have added the code in functions.php and when I am adding code in sidebar.php to make the widget visible it’s not appearing. Any other method to do this?

function wpblog_widget()
        'name' => __('Primary Sidebar', 'wpb'),
        'id' => 'primary_sidebar', // unique-sidebar-id
        'description' => '',
        'class' => '',
        'before_widget' => '<li id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
        'after_widget' => '</li>',
        'before_title' => '<h2 class="widgettitle">',
        'after_title' => '</h2>',


add_action('widgets_init', 'wpblog_widget');
