Feedburner Recent Posts Widget For Blogger

Feedburner Recent Post Widget You might have seen recent post widget hanging on the sidebar of several blogs but most often this widgets have a JavaScript Code in it that badly increases the load time of your page. Today we will learn how to add a Recent posts widget offered by  Feedburner to your blogs which is tidy, attractive, unique and most importantly fast loading.
Let me tell you that Feedburner also uses JavaScript but it’s really smart when it comes to page Load time, because the JavaScript is not directly linked to your blog, 50% of the load time is shared by FeedBurner.
