Link list

Make valuable use of your link list. I didn’t include a link to this option because it’s easier to find from your Blogger blog. Use your Blogger Dashboard to select “design” of the blog to edit. Select “add a gadget” from any of the side panels. You can select add a gadget in the row you would like to see your link list.

This is designed to showcase well liked or popular posts that are in your blog. Copy the URL of the post you would like to show on the link list in the appropriate panel. Some bloggers will use links from other areas on the web where they have content also. Give the post an eye catching title that draws the reader if the original title doesn’t seem to be enough.
