    I am wondering if there is a way to have syndicated feed display as posts instead of in sidebar (I have heard of FirstRSS but don;t know if I can use it on WP.com.)

    Thanks!

    Right now there is nothing to be able to do this. Sorry about that! You might want to suggest this to the Staff through sending in feedback in your blog admin or through the “support” tab in these forums!

    No – it can’t be done and in a feedback I would put the chances as low. Very low.

    Having blogs filled with posts from other sources isn’t such a great idea…..

    Thanks for the replies. I really just wanted added content to what I post. Why wouldn’t it be such a good idea?

    High spam blog risk – it would be easy to create a blog and then have content just rolling in at high speed.

    That’s the methodology that blog scrapers use; if you subscribe to the full feed and post those without permission, it’s flat-out illegal, too.

    If you want to add content to what you post, just link blog now and again. For example, say “I found a great video about dancing frogs in the Amazon here” and link to it.
