There are many recent post widgets shared by different bloggers  which are  only  moving when a mouse cursor touches it. It is very important to grab viewers' attention upon landing a certain page in our blog and see what is new on it so that they will have an idea if we are keep on  posting articles by which they could  also learn or gain some useful information  and consequently  they will  remember us.

Step 5.  Again go to  Blogger Dashboard, click Lay-out then select Add a Gadget,
Step 6. Scroll Down and select HTML/Javascript,
Step 7. In the empty box, paste the code that you have copy from Step 4,
Step 8. Hit the Save button and you have now a new recent post widget with self scrolling effect

Short Customization:
a. Replace  80 to adjust the individual height/box of the widget.
b. Replace  385 to customize/adjust the whole height of the widget.
c. Replace with your own blog URL.
d. Replace 10 with your desired number of posts to scroll in the widget.
e.  Replace 4  with your desired number of post to appear in widget. 
f.  Replace 4000  . Increase value will slow down the appearance/scrolling  of the next post. Decrease value will make the scrolling effect a  faster.
