If you just added the above code correctly... Wow you have done a good job..., now it is the time to add the JavaScript coding that would turn the ordinary looking older and newer post buttons link into a brand new user-friendly numbered page navigation. 

This is where the second job comes, locate this code </body> tag (using CTRL + F) and paste the below code above or before it and save your template.


 <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<script type='text/javascript'>
  /*<![CDATA[*/
    var perPage=7;
    var numPages=6;
    var firstText ='First';
    var lastText ='Last';
    var prevText ='« Previous';
    var nextText ='Next »';
    var urlactivepage=location.href;
    var home_page="/";
  /*]]>*/
</script>
  <script src="http://helplogger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/page-navigation2.js"/>
</b:if>
</b:if>


If you just completed that successfully, congratulation you have done a good job... Brilliant  !!!!!! …… You are good to go. You might not notice but you have put your blog a step ahead other blogs and watch out they might come for tuition …
