Simple Recent Posts Widget for Blogger/Blogspot

The main advantage on this Recent Posts widget is that it will show not only post titles, but also post excerpts or snippets, and it's easy to customize or apply different style on it. To make it fit your own design, you will need to modify the CSS style - you can change the link or background color, the size and color of text/links.

What you can do with this widget:
- display post titles only
- change the number of posts
- change the number of characters of the post snippet/excerpt
- show the post dates

See the screenshot below:
