Below is a "Subpage listing" gadget. This gadget...
  • Displays only titles of posts, so titles should be kept short and meaningful.
  • Orders items alphabetically by title, so if you want to have items shown in some other order you need to begin your titles appropriately (eg. yyyy-mm-dd for descending date order)
  • No limit on length (ie. no "posts 1 to 10, click to show more" type of thing).  You would need to start deleting (or moving) posts to shorten the list.

Below is a "Recent announcements" gadget.This gadget...
  • Displays titles of posts plus a "snippet" (3 optional lengths) and optionally a thumbnail of the first image in the post.
  • Orders items by time posted, most recent first.
  • Will limit number of posts displayed to some maximum number.
See notes below.

It's worth noting that material "embedded" (in the technical meaning of that term) in a post does not appear in the snippet. The not-too-techie explanation for this is that all blogs are already feeds, so blog menus like this are feeds of feeds, and embedded objects are like feeds of feeds of feeds, and that level of nesting just takes way too much computer to display quickly or nicely. Think of that famous painting of infinite regression – the painter painting a landscape including himself painting the painting. Then imagine what it would take to make each smaller image as perfect as the largest version (using a magnifying glass to view it, presumably). This principle will be the same no matter what product you use.

The solution to this effect is to either do without blog menus with snippets or to only put non-embedded content into the original blog posts. The first solution stinks. The second one, in our case, would mean putting real transcriptions into the posts as opposed to merely embedding feeds from Storify: a bit more work but likely to be worth it.
