It's very old-fashioned guys. Now, let me give you the hundreds more simple way how to add Read-More button in your each post in one step. Automatically, it will be appeared when you publish your post.

Here are the way:

1. First, log in to your account in Blogspot.com. Then in your Dashboard, click on Design--> Edit HTML

2. Before you modify your HTML code (template), I recomend you to Download Full Template first, so that if there's something wrong in the code, your blog appearance won't be destructed.

3. After that, give a check in Expand Templates Widget.





4. Use Ctrl+F on your keyboard to find this code:
</head>

5. Then, copy and paste the following code just below the code.

<script type='text/javascript'> var thumbnail_mode = &quot;no-float&quot; ; summary_noimg = 430; summary_img = 340; img_thumb_height = 100; img_thumb_width = 120; </script> <script src='YOUR_BLOG_ADDRESS' type='text/javascript'/>

6. After that, find this code:
<data:post.body/> or <p><data:post.body/></p>

7. Change it with the following code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<div expr:id='&quot;summary&quot; + data:post.id'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<data:post.id/>&quot;);
</script>
<span class='rmlink' style='float:right;padding-top:20px;'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'>&#187;&#187;&#160;&#160;READMORE...</a></span>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><data:post.body/></b:if>

P.S: The red text (READMORE...) can be changed by other words, such as:
"Read Full Post...", "Continue Reading...", etc...

8. Finally, click Save Template
