Displaying recent posts in your sidebar of your blogger blog often help your users to quickly take a look at the content that is more new and fresh. It also gives them a basic idea that what kind of content is published on a certain blog.

Adding a recent post widget for blogger helps to reduce dependency on E-mail marketing because you don’t have to send out an E-mail just to let people know you have made a new post.

A recent post widget for blogger is in many ways similar to a “Breaking News alert” that journalists love to use during their reports.

However, in some designing methods people want to display recent posts differently according to their design. In this article, we will show you how to display recent posts in blogger.
Here are 5 cool and eye catching recent post widgets with how they look on blog and HTML code to implement on your blogger blog.
