Blogger Introduced Featured Post Gadget!!

Default Featured Post Widget for Blogger

Well, I was expecting this from Blogger for a long time. And never thought that Blogger has already introduced this gadget in last month. Just yesterday, I was about to fix someone's blog and discovered Featured Post gadget in the blogger's layout! And to be honest, I was more than happy . . .

Featured Post

Maybe most of you are familiar with the featured post. Though Blogger had no such option earlier, webmasters were able to display a featured post with the help of third party templates. 

And there are also many scripts to help you out regarding featured post. But you don't need to use them anymore. Now you can use the default featured post gadget of Blogger. And it's really easy to install. :) 

Use of Featured Post
