Have you ever wanted to notify your first-time blog readers of something before they read more of your blog? Or have you ever had an important announcement for your readers but didn’t want to place the message on your sidebar, install a complicated code to create a pop-up message, or keep mentioning it on your blog posts? Luckily, Blogger has a solution for that. Using Blogger’s widgets, it’s easy to add a sticky welcome post to your Blogger blog.
