I recently was asked how to have a post stay at the top, before all other posts, similar to that of the "Feature This Post" option in Typepad. This is possible in Blogger! You just have to tweak one area, one line of code in HTML.

  1. Login to Blogger.
  2. Old Blogger: From the Dashboard, choose Design. Then click the Edit HTML tab.
    New Blogger: From the Dashboard, click Template, then Edit HTML and click Proceed when prompted. 
  3. Scroll down the HTML code, towards the bottom, until you find the code.

    <div id='main-wrapper'>
            <b:section class='main' id='main' showaddelement='no'>
            <b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

  4. Where it says….showaddelement='no'……change it to showaddelement='yes'
  5. Then Save Template.
  6. Now when you go back to Page Elements (Old Blogger) or Layout (in the New Blogger) you can see a "Add a Gadget" right above the Blog Posts area. 
  7. Click to Add a Gadget and choose whatever you'd like. In my example, www.handstampedbyheather.com, I chose HTML/JavaScript. I posted some text and a slider.
  8. Save and you're done!

Hope this helps!
