Add a Free RSS Feed Widget to Squarespace (2023)

It’s taken me hours to figure out how to add and embed a free widget with an RSS news feed to a Squarespace page. (For example, I added an RSS feed widget to the bottom of this page asianamericanchristiancollaborative.com/mentalhealth to feature new CAMH blog posts off-site.)

Something so simple like an RSS feed widget shouldn’t be so expensive. But there are many more paid RSS widget services than there are freemium ones in 2023.

Here’s what’s available for smaller websites that don’t have as much traffic and want to add a free widget onto a Squarespace page. (Note: what we’re talking about here is not adding an RSS feed for your Squarespace blog; this is for adding teasers that link to content published elsewhere.)
