    okay, I am officially a wally….
    trying to display feeds to my “friends” blogs (not all wordpress). i thought i was following all the really simple and easy to follow instructions but when i post the url’s of the blogs into the space provided in my rss feed widget thingie, nothing happens. hmmm – just refer to me as wally in your response – i promise it will make me feel better!

    I’m as big a wally as you when it comes to RSS; I know it the way i know Latin. Like, from dead people.

    That said, I think the issue is: You don’t need the URL of their blogs. You need the URL of their feeds. Here at wordpress.com, that url is your normal blog url plus /feed on the end. But there are all kinds of esoteric variances, so get it from the source for each blog.
