I am planning on getting MY 2nd BLOGOVERSARY post up about midweek.
I need it to be a sticky post (one that stays at the top) for about 4 weeks (approx. Feb 17th)

Can anyone tell me how to do that????

Thanks in Advance! :)

Mornin' Susan!

Congrat on your upcoming blogoversay!!

I believe if you publish your post (midweek) then go back & edit the date to feb 17th then hit publish will re-appear on your blog with the Feb date and all your other postings you publish normally will fall in place under your blogoversay feb 17th post.
make sense?

the key is to publish it first then go back and edit it with the new date.
Let me know if it works for you!
hugs & blessings

How to Create a Sticky Post on Blogger
By an eHow Contributor

Connect to your Blogger account and click "Layout" in the "Dashboard."

Select "Add a Page Element" and choose the function you want to use as your "sticky post." For example, if you would like to announce an ongoing contest, you can choose "Text" and enter the details. "Text" allows you to add and edit HTML. By selecting "HTML/JavaScript," you also can choose to link to a previously written, archived post that gives the written details of the contest.

Complete the "Add a Page Element" template, click and drag the item to the "Blog Posts" section.

Click "Preview" to make sure the sticky post appears at the top of the page. Then click "Save."

You can create more than one "sticky post."

"Sticky posts" have no expiration date. To remove a "sticky post," simply click "Remove Page Element."

Hi Susan,
If you set the post date to the future date you want the post to stay up until, and then publish the post now, it will stay up until the date you set.

Hope that makes sense.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but I "think" what you do is publish the post on the day, then go in and edit the date to the last date you want it to be at the top and republish (making sure that you DO NOT save to draft). I "think" it should then show the date in question on it, but be published the day you want, then other posts should be below it since they have earlier dates. Like I said, I'm not 100% sure, having never actually done it, but I'm pretty sure that's how it's done.
