Is there a way to tie a widget to a specific group of hubs?

    Hi y'all,

    I signed up this weekend, and I've created two hubs.  Both are reviews of old NES games (I have shelves and shelves full of classic games, and I plan to review them all) and I've linked them to my blog using the widget tool.  The thing is, as far as I can tell, the widget can't be set to display certain, specific hubs or groupings of hubs.  It just displays them all.

    I was thinking about branching out to other topics, (I work in mortgages for a living, and folks could use some advice) but I'd like to be able to keep the topics in separate widgets for clarity if at all possible.  Is there a way to accomplish this?

    I apologize in advance if this is a total noob question. smile  If you want to see what I'm talking about, my blog is at http://thepeterjohnson.blogspot.com/  The widget is situated to the upper-left side.

    Thanks for reading this!

      As far as I know, the widget is set to display latest hubs and can't be changed.
      What you could do, is open a new account on HP with a username more suited to your mortgages theme, and then you will have a separate widget to add to a mortgage blog if you have one.

      That's right, that's the way it works. 

      You can use a "Feed" gadget in your sidebar instead.  Insert your RSS feed using a tag, and you'll get a constantly updated list of your Hubs on that subject.

      For instance, if I wanted to feature a list of my dance Hubs, I would insert the Feed gadget and paste in:

      http://hubpages.com/author/Marisa+Wrigh … atest/?rss

      i.e. the sequence is:

      http://hubpages.com/author/author's name/tag/latest/?rss

      Edit:  I forgot an important bit!  You must choose a tag to add to each of your Hubs on that topic.
