The first version of this plugin will just go and get the last 7 blog enties and display them in an list. You can easliy change the
style sheet included to make the slice reflect the look of your site.
Upcoming versions should be more configurable and have added functionality, this version is just the initial alpha and will be updated based on any feedback people offer.
