There has never been a blogger who is king of content. There are topics you are not good at but they are on other blogs, but at times you may wish to give your readers some of those contents. This is where rss feeds importation comes into play; this feature enables you to automatically showcase posts from other blogs on your blog.

Step 1
Locate an RSS feed you want to use. You can distinguish such feeds on websites because of their orange icons (link in Resources). Clicking an icon gives you the feed address, which you can then copy. If it does not, try right-clicking on the icon and selecting “Copy Link Location.”

Step 3
Click “Layout” to show the Layout page and click “Add a Gadget” to show the Add a Gadget window. Locate the Feed gadget by scrolling down the page. Click the gadget's “+” button to display the Configure Feed window.
Step 4

Step 5
Click the “Save” button to close the Configure Feed window and return to the Layout page. The feed gadget you just added appears at the head of your gadget list. To move it to a new location, click on it and hold down the left mouse key, then drag the gadget, such as to under the Blog Posts box, and let go of the key. The gadget snaps into place. Click the “Save Arrangement” button if you moved the gadget.
