4. In the code, look for the line…

home_page = "http://24works.blogspot.com/";
and replace the blog address with your own blog address

5. How to change the number of posts
By default, this widget is set to display a maximum of 5 recent posts. To change this number,
numposts = 5;
edit line in the code and replace the number 5 with the number of posts desired:

6. How to change thumbwidth & thumbheight
thumbwidth = 80;

thumbheight = 80;
Width and Height of the thumbnail (default are good)
