Add Recent Comments Widget with Avatars To Blogger

In one of my previous tutorials, I already shared to you the recent comments widgets for Blogger that can show the latest published comments from your posts. However, the main disadvantage of that widget is the simplicity of the design and I didn't have an option for displaying the users avatars or logo.The avatars are their profile picture in Google plus that will show when they drop a comment in one of your posts. So for those bloggers who want to add avatars, here's the stylish recent comments widget having round avatars and comment excerpts. The widget has an extra option for your creativity, you can now change the default image of the anonymous avatars, how nice is it?

As I always said that every widget that has a link to your articles will give you a chance for more page views. Don't worry this widget is SEO friendly and it can improve your SEO because of the internal backlinks. So you don't have a reason now why you should not use this gadget in your sidebar. Follow carefully my instructions below on how you can add this beautiful recent comment in your own blog.

  1. Hi, I love your widget with the avatars. I started having a problem this week after over a year with no issues. The recent comments on the blog shows up occasionally & I have to reinstall it. Today, it won't show up at all now. Any ideas as to what is going on, did something change within Blogger to make this happen? Thanks

    1. Maybe it's because of your weak internet connection. Until now it's not working?

  2. Good Working! @
    » thanks i love your works!
