    Alright Im working on a website. The main domain “example.com” and the blog will be on “example.com/blog”. As well as having the blog on the /blog I would like to have a small blog roll / freed of the main blog on the main domain homepage. Is there a way to do this with out having to install wordpress on the main domain?

    Thanks.

    If you on on a web host (and using WordPress installed there) rather than at WordPress.com, you can do exactly what you are describing. This is the article that enabled me to do that on a hosted site with a WordPress blog in a subdirectory of the main Website. I tweaked It a bit to get the categories and number of posts that I wanted. I used it in more than one page. I do not know if you can use it to pull posts from a blog on a different server however.

    The same site shows how to incorporate current posts using a rss feed to your external website. http://www.corvidworks.com/articles/easy-feed-reading-with-simplepie

    Again, this would be if your main website is not on WordPress.com. I have not tried this, but would try this method if I was trying to incorporate recent posts into an external website.
