Embedding feeds in blog posts

I wanted to see if Blogger’s static Pages could house feeds for some of my other blogs, so that my Micalet blog could operate as a sort of Grand Central Station for my online world. Feeds use Javascript code, and there’s a handy facility at Feed2JS that does the job for you.

I did come across one issue – Feed2JS needs you to enter different versions of the url for your blog feed according to whether you are taking the feed from WordPress or from Blogger:

• for a feed from a WordPress blog: (blogurl)/feed

• for a feed from a Blogger blog: (blogurl)/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

Thanks to Peter @ Enviroman, whose tip came up in a Google search.

Another new thing!
