As in WordPress, many blogspot users have been looking for ways to add estimated reading time in blogger template. This is because it does not only make the website look good, but also the blog read time calculator helps your readers to know how long it will take them to read a particular article in your blog. This is somehow like the blog post reading time plugin which is available for WordPress users, but only that this one is a Javascript, which makes it easier for Blogspot users to enjoy.

The average article reading time feature was first seen on the latest version of Jagodesain's Fletro Pro Blogger Template, which is the Fletro Pro v5.5. Though this update isn't officially released yet, but we can see from the demo website and it is a great feature. You can also see this feature on our blog, just above the title of each posts.
