Tapping the brain trust

I’m looking for an easy, free way to turn an RSS feed into a widget that I can embed into a Web site. Thoughts?

    Use Google Reader. They do all the heavy lifting.

    MyDedham: I’m not sure what you mean. I already have an RSS reader. Is there something in Google Reader that helps you create widgets?

    Check out the RSS widget options at WidgetBox.

    Sproutbuilder, although their widget is the size of a YouTube video, which might be a bit much.

    Feedburner has a number of useful functions — I use their “BuzzBoost” service to translate my feeds to html on my front page. Not exactly a widget, but very customizable.

    Philocrites: Not bad! See this. I might give those other options a whirl, too.
