Using RSS Feeds to post Blog to HTML page

I had a hard time nailing down a good service to use for this during the process of creating a new web page for a client. I wanted to create a basic brochure site that had an area on the home page for user-editable content and I didn't want to use Wordpress or some other service like that.

What I found is a great service called WebRSS here's the URL: basically, you have the blog address, go to their site and then post one of four different technologies to the page. I tried using the PHP, iFrame and Javascript and finally ended up using that. It works really great and is highly customizeable. The feed refreshes every hour and looks great. Give it a try!
