Adding a Random posts widget is very easy...
Simply log in to blogger, go to Layout, click on "Add a Gadget", and select it as "HTML/JavaScript" type.

And finally paste this code in to it:

<script type="text/javascript">
var randarray = new Array();var l=0;var flag;
var numofpost=6;function randomposts(json){
var total = parseInt(json.feed.openSearch$totalResults.$t,10);
for(i=0;i < numofpost;){flag=0;randarray.length=numofpost;l=Math.floor(Math.random()*total);for(j in randarray){if(l==randarray[j]){ flag=1;}}
for(n in randarray){ var p=randarray[n];var entry=json.feed.entry[p-1];
for(k=0; k < entry.link.length; k++){if(entry.link[k].rel=='alternate'){var item = "<li>" + "<a href=" + entry.link[k].href + ">" + entry.title.$t + "</a> </li>";
<script src="/feeds/posts/default?alt=json-in-script&start-index=1&max-results=1000&callback=randomposts" type="text/javascript"></script>
Edit the code shown in 'red' to change the number of posts being displayed in the widget.
Now save the widget, and place it somewhere so that it is clearly visible to the visitors !
