A simple way to add recent comments to your blog

Having a recent comment widget on your blog has its advantages, not only linking more of your pages from your blogs main page but to encourage others to interact even more with your site.
I was busy looking for how to add a comment widget and could not find any that really worked... 

Finally I just found out a simple and easy way to add the recent comments to our blog using "Feed" widget/ element....
How to add it to your blog:
  1. Go to your blog, and select the “Layout” tab.
  2. Choose the place where you wanna put the comments, and click “Add a Gadget”.
  3. Select the “Feed” element, and click “Add to blog”.
  4. The next step is to add the feed’s URL, in this case is the one that has the comments of our own blog. This address is like this:
    Where ABC123 is that part of your blog’s address.
  6. The next step is to configure:
  7. Title: the title to show on top of comments.
    Number of items: in this case it’s the number of comments.
    Item date: show comment’s date.
    Item sources/authors: show comment’s author.
  8. Save the changes and that’s it.
This will be enough to show the last 5 comments.
Happy trying......
