Hi Steve

Do you have a public RSS feed? (I'm not a user of LinkedIn)

LinkedIn seems to provide some plugins:

[[LINK href="http://developer.linkedin.com/plugins"]]http://developer.linkedin.com/plugins[[/LINK]]

that you can copy/paste into your sidebar text widget.

Here is a plugin (not a free one) that seems to be using the LinkedIn API to fetch data:

and comes with a video tutorial

Wordpress has a built-in RSS widget. Here is a screenshot of that widget.

<blockquote>On Linkedin : Go to edit profile and scroll down to the bottom. You will see a link that says Applications- Add an Application. Click on that link and you will see this page of options. There is an option to add your blog link with WordPress. Click on the link and you will be taken to a page where you can add in the RSS feed for your blog</blockquote>
