The importance of random post widget  in our blog is that it  shows our old posts and keeps our archives active since many of our articles are useful to others even if it has been posted long time ago. There are so many good posts that should not be buried in the archive. If you can find the means to promote them once again to others, do it. I am sure there are other readers out there who have not read your article yet and you should do something to reach them out.

If you are handling a site with pool of writers, you will surely give honor to your writers by making their posts possibly appear in search engines and even in the homepage of the site so that those who would like to back read them will have the chance.  This is the purpose of this article.

This tutorial will teach you the easy way to have random post in your blogger blogs. I posted lot of useful widgets for blogger blogs to help everyone makes blogging easy in relation to styles and customization.
