#1) After you download the widget as a compressed (zipped) file, it should automatically prompt you with a message asking you whether you would like to install the widget. Click "Install".
#2) Next, you will be taken to your Dashboard, where you should see the widget in a box. Click "Keep", and it should appear normally on your Dashboard.
#3) Drag it around and place it wherever you like. If you are connected to the internet, it will update all of the posts automatically. If the widget is updating, you should see a "Loading..." text field at the bottom.
If you would like to change how long the articles displayed are, click in the information icon that appears in the lower, right corner when your cursor is hovered over the widget to flip it over. Use the slider to adjust the the length of the articles. When you are finished, click the "Done" button to flip it back over.
The first time that you use the widget, you may notice that some images may take a second to appear. This is not a performance issue, and the images will show up after they initially load.
I am very excited that the widget is finally being released, and I am looking forward to seeing what new features we can implement into future releases!
