Recent Posts Widget By Blogger

imageI shared a tutorial earlier on how to add a Recent Posts Widget provided by Feedburner. However just this year blogger introduced their own Feed widget that takes the URL of your FEED and displays the links to your posts with some limited options. The widget by feedburner however has many options but if you need a shortcut then here it is:

   6.  Click Continue

   7.  You then have 4 options. You can at most display 5 links, with dates, author names and you can make them to open in a new window. I will recommend that you keep the default settings.

  1. Mohammad, I ran across your website by accident and I'm thankful I did. The little video of Take a Break featuring Slowly Slow was something I needed right now as well as one of your blog posts. Thank you for your contributions to the internet and to those of us who don't know as much as you have learned. Keep sharing. You are appreciated. Chris
