How To Share Other Blog Feeds In Your Sidebar

In addition to your own content, you can share posts from other blogs by adding their RSS feed to your sidebar.  You can share content from some of your favorite websites in just a couple of steps; there are free, third-party services to help set this up for your blog. Today, we will work with FeedWind (feed.mikle.com). 

Say Everything Typepad is your favorite blog, and you would like to share our feed in your sidebar, you can set this up by pulling our RSS feed URL:

http://everything.typepad.com/blog/rss.xml

Next, in your Typepad account, you can add your custom sidebar content by going to Design > Content, and select "Embed Your Own HTML" from the Modules box.  Paste your code in the pop-up window:

Click "OK" in the pop-up and save your changes.  The feed will appear and update automatically in your sidebar on your published blog. 

You can also save your feed code in a Typelist. Using a Typelist will let you add and manage the same feed to more than one blog in your account without needing to edit multiple individual modules.
