If you're a blogger then this article is a must read for you. You might be having some posts that should come across every reader of your blog. Earlier there was not any option in blogger to highlight or feature any special article. But recently Google has launched an awesome feature called "Featured Post". Now you can highlight any post anywhere on your blog using featured post gadget.

It might happen that once you wrote some article which got the highest popularity but as soon as you're going to write new posts that awesome article is going to slip down on older pages. Sooner it won't be visible to the readers. At that time Google's new feature provides awesome benefits. 

You can easily highlight hot and delicious recipe, cool running offer or just revive any article from the archives. It's the best way to run any promotion on your blog as it's going to provide maximum conversion to you. Read below how you can set up featured post widget.
