The next logical thing you will do is to paste it on your HTML/Java Widget in your blogger. The steps are Login blogger > Layout > Page Elemets > Add A Gadget > Add HTML/Java widget. Then paste that piece of code in the text section of the blog as shown below.
Then 'save settings' an see the results on the sidebar of your blog. You'll see your shoutmix tucked neat on your sidebar for friends or visitors to comment or ask questions to your blog.
It's a form of reciprocal communication with your customers.
