Making a link on Blogger's Dynamic View landing page

As everyone may know by now, I love using Blogger's dynamic view for my blogs. And so this past two days I have been looking around to see what has changed since its inception. Sad to say, there is not much that changed, by that I mean design wise.

Since dynamic view was rolled out, users are restricted on using it as it is. No modifications can be done to customize it. Well at least now some gadgets can be added namely Blog Archive, Followers, Labels, Profile, Subscribe, and Link List.

These gadgets can be added through the Layout tab. If in any case you decided to add a gadget not yet allowed in dynamic views, blogger will simply ignore them.

But you know what triggered me to check what is new to dynamic views? It was simply to add a one line link to permanently appear anywhere on my landing page.

Since I am not an expert with CSS here is my work around to the problem. I simply created a static page and named it to the anchor text that I want then point this to the page that I want it to open when it is clicked. Now I have a text link on my home page that appears on the navigation bar.
