A dynamic way to draw attention to posts is by placing the Category Carousel in the sidebar. The carousel will rotate through images from posts of the selected category.
At Design > Content, select the Widgets category, choose the Category Carousel, and click Add This Module.
Name the module and choose a category. There are 10 other customization options available. You can even display an excerpt of each post below the image. Once the module is configured, click OK, drag the module to the preferred sidebar location, and click Save Changes.
On your blog, the module will scroll through the posts assigned to the selected category and visitors can click on the image to open the individual post page.
After you add one Category Carousel, you can add a carousel for another category highlighting some or all of the categories in the sidebar. Learn more.
