Google Blogging Tip # 35: Setting Up Your Google Blog Gadgets, Part 13

Adding a 'Feed' to your Sidebar (column):
The primary purpose of this Gadget feature is for you to add your Website; Webpage; or another Blog as a snippet.
Note: I tested this on a friends Website, and it works. I also tried it on several Blogs with different templates and they work. But when I tried it on my Twitter Page it did not work.
Make sure if you choose to do this it functions properly.
I don't have a website domain, so I used one of the followers here on this Blog, 'Funny Daily Jokes', as a sample for you to view at:
