Widgets »Blogs I Follow Widget

The Blogs I Follow Widget allows you to list some of the blogs that you are following via the WordPress.com Reader in your sidebar.

Here’s an example of what it looks like:

Notice the neat bubble there? In Grid view (see below) we’ll include a little bubble that shows the title and tagline of each blog when someone hovers over them. When other users view it (you won’t see them on your own blog), we’ll also show a Follow button so that people can immediately follow the blogs you’re following.

Once you add the widget to your sidebar from Appearance -> Widgets, you’ll see that the widget settings look like this:

 

Title – The title of your widget. (i.e. “I Love These Blogs!”)

Number of blogs to show – Enter the maximum number of blogs that you’d like to show here. We’ll try our best to only show blogs that have uploaded a Blavatar, or that have a user-image set. Blogs are listed in reverse order, so when you follow something new, it will appear at the top of the list.

Display as – You can show your list as either a simple text list, or as a grid of images. If you select Grid, then we’ll try to load a Blavatar or user-image for each blog.
