There are already a few RSS feeder widgets available that do exactly what you want. Try RSSBeans for an example. Maybe make one with graphics that match the site and have the logo (with permission of course), that would be cool.

I'm working on a widget of my own (can't give details yet ) and its easy to learn how to do it.

Maybe we should have a forum contest for member widgets?!?

a forum dedicated to widgets would be good with an FAQ to help people get started

This is the best starting point I have found:

http://developer.apple.com/macosx/dashboard.html

I made the example they walk you through and it was easy sailing from there. Just be careful on how complex you get because its easy to get confused real quick.
