To get a "sticky" post you need to give it a date past today so if you want it to stay up until 2nd March you give it a date of 2nd March!HTH! Lol Lynn ♥

Once posted you need to edit and then you can change the date. ;))

I think you can edit your post and change the date to whenever you want it to end. If you click on 'post options' down in the left hand corner when you're editing you can see the date you posted and I'm sure you can then change it.Mind you, I've not done it myself!

when you post a card or you can go back to edit it , go on post options which is on botton left hand side click on that and a date box opens change the date to a date that you want the post to stay at the top until and it will just stay at the top until the date you set !! easy :-)
good luck !! :-)

Hazel I can help when you write a new post publish as normal but then go back into edit it when it opens at the bottom is 'post options' click on that and then change the date to the time you want it to stay at the top then publish and it will stay on top until it reaches the day you put in.

Yes, this is really useful to know. I agree with the others who commented. I had to ask this question too so don't feel bad.

What I couldn't figure out was when I created an unpublished post in blogger, I pressed the link that said "post options" and then that brought up the "Post Date and Time" box, which I altered to a future date only to find that when I published, the post went in the "Scheduled" listing waiting to be published in the future, but not showing up on the blog. That wasn't what I wanted. I wanted a sticky post to stay on top of the blog page.

It was only when someone told me that you have to publish the post first, then go back into the published post and edit it by clicking the "Post Options" link and alter the "Post Date and Time" that this time the post became sticky.

Somehow, I kept missing that nugget of information. I got it now, and it's easy.
