One of the big things of today is micro-blogging. If you don’t know what it is, think of Facebook, and then think of the status field in Facebook. Strip most of the other functionality away. That’s microblogging. In other words; microblogging is responding to the question “What are you doing right now?”
I’ve got an account at Twitter (my nick there is @razumny), and wanted the last two entries to be displayed in the sidebar of my personal blog. Here’s how I did it:
First, you’ll want to find the RSS-feed address for your twitter feed. If you go to your twitter feed page, you’ll see a link at the bottom of the sidebar on the right side, like so:
- Log into your Blogspot account, and click the link for Layout for the blog you want to update
- Click the “Add a gadget” link
- In the pop-up, select to add a feed, then enter the address, and set the number of updates to display, and what to call the field
- Place the feed where you want it in your blog
