Making your Blog List work

Ok so you installed Blogger's Blog List gadget on your sidebar. You added some of your friends' blog on the list but somehow, not all recent posts are showing. The reason behind this is that maybe your friend's blog is not hosted by Blogger. Or even if it is, it's using a different feed service like Feedburner instead of Blogger's default.

Fortunately, there's still a way to make this work. Enter Google Reader.

Google Reader is an RSS reader service from Google. When you have a Blogger account, you can also use it to log in to Google Reader. Just subscribe to a site's feed by entering its URL in the Add subscription field.


After you've added all the sites that you want, head over to your site and edit your Blog List settings.

Click the Add to List button and select Import subscriptions from Google Reader.

You will see the list of feeds you're subscribed to that is not yet included in your Blog List. Select those that you want then click Add.

Save your changes to see the sites on your list with their recent post.

There you go! Hope you find this tip useful.
