I am trying to figure out how to "stick" my current post, announcing a writing contest, on the home page of my blog http://pegoleg.wordpress.com/. for at least the next several weeks. I would prefer to have it in the right hand column with the picture there and a "read more" caption so it doesn't obscure my new posts as added. I just changed themes from 2010 to 2011 thinking the Showcase option would work, but can't figure it out. I've read the Theme Showcase info on this theme, checked the forums, and am lost.
If I add a page, can I put a link in the right hand column with a picture? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
The blog I need help with is pegoleg.wordpress.com.
