If you have Blogger account you can show volunteers' stories of your favorite country in real-time right on your own blog!
Log into your Blogger.com account.
This will take you to your Blogger Dashboard, which is a list of all of your blogs on the site along with controls for customizing them. Select "Layout" for your desired blog.
The "Layout" tab will be displayed, providing a graphical representation of your blog, including the area where blog posts appear and areas where you can add customized elements. Click on 'Add a Gadget'.
Another window will open with a list of elements that you can add to your blog. Under "Basic" select the Gadget "Feed". is a gadget labeled "Feed". which opens a "Configure Feed" dialog box.
This will open up a "Configure Feed" dialog box. A shortcut for a list of all RSS feeds available through PeaceCorpsJournals is available here. Select your favorite RSS feed, and copy/paste the URL into the "Configure Feed" dialog box. Click 'Continue'
After clicking on "Continue" a dialog box will open showing the title of the blog feed you are publishing, an option to select how many items you wish to display, and check boxes to show "Item dates" and "Item sources/authors." Make your selections, review how the feed will look on your blog, and select "Save" when satisfied.
The feed you just added will show up as the top item in your list of side page elements. Left-click, hold, and drag the feed element to move it to a different slot on the side, or to the top or bottom section of your blog. When satisfied, click on "Save." Then click "Preview" to see how your new feed appears. Use "Clear Edits" to undo the changes and start over.
