How to Add Post Titles to Read More Links in Blogger

Add interest to your "read more" links by including each post's title
Blogger's Jump-Link (Read More) feature enables us to display summaries of our blog posts on the home page (and all non-item pages).

We can configure the text displayed for the Jump Link (which links to the post's item page) by editing the Blog Posts gadget in Design>Page Elements. However, I've also found it useful to add the title of the post beside the Jump-Link text to clarify the title of the post to which it links.
