The RSS Widget makes adding updates from any RSS feed to the sidebar of your blog simple. To learn more about it check out our WordPress.com support video.

how do you get to that RSS page in the first place? might be a silly question to you BUT I just made a blog so i need to know. thank you.
The Widgets can be found by going to Appearance > Widgets in your blog’s Dashboard.
Is it possible to run multiple rss feeds through the widget to get the most recent content from a number of sources?
You cannot run more than one RSS feed through one widget, but you can add more than one RSS widget, each with a separate source.
Try using Yahoo Pipes to aggregate different RSS feeds into one new, combined feed. It’s pretty slick.
I don’t understand what an RSS feed is!! Sorry to seem so ignorant. Is the URL for my blog, or someone else’s?
I need RSS for dummies, sorry!
My blog is http://petchary.wordpress.com and I found the widget but don’t know what the URL should be, or…?
RSS can be a difficult one to get your head around. The best, easiest explanation I’ve seen is by CommonCraft, in video format. Check it out on their site. After that, you might want to follow up with our support doc on RSS feeds
