The idea is to entice your readers to come back and read the article once it gets published, or better yet, subscribe to your RSS feed and/or newsletter. Here are the configurable options for the widget: * Title of sidebar widget * Number of upcoming posts to display (always in ascending order - newest first) * Which categories to display posts from * Choose whether to show scheduled posts, drafts, or both. * Display order of the posts (next post first or random order) * Message to display for when there are no scheduled posts or drafts * Show/hide newsletter link * Include link to sign up to newsletter I've got plans to continue developing and updating this plugin.

Go to Appearance > Widgets to put the widget in your selected sidebar. 1.
