Adding the 'Read more' link to your Blogger posts

I have included the steps necessary to create the 'Read more ...' or 'expandable post summaries' as they are also known. Using this method, the 'read more...' section will automatically be the text occurring immediately after the first paragraph; i.e. if you press the 'Enter' key at the end of the first sentence(s), the rest will be viewed when the read more link is selected.

After you log into your blogger account, go to the 'Layout' link and select the 'Edit HTML' link on the top bar. Click on the 'Expand Widget Templates' check box.

To finish, click on the 'Save Template' button.

That should be that!
