My label-limits lament

Yesterday night, I undertook a major blogging project. I opened my Word archive of poems that I've posted, printed out a copy of the table of contents, and begin methodically labeling every single poem on my blog. If there's a faster way to do this, please enlighten me. The way I labeled my poetry posts was to click on the archive of the month in which a poem was posted, scroll to the post, click on the edit icon, type in the label, click publish, and, unfortunately, start all over from scratch, since hitting the Publish button takes one back not to that month's archive, but to the top of the blog. With interruptions, the project of labeling 36 posts (containing 40 poems--two of the posts contain three poems each) took me roughly two hours.
Imagine my dismay when, upon completing this time-consuming project, I clicked on the "My poems" label in my most recent poetry post, and only 20 of the 36 posts appeared. I clicked again on the "My poems" label in the last visible post, but instead of seeing the remaining labeled posts, I found myself back at the most recent one. Apparently, there's a limit either to the number of posts or to the amount of text that will be displayed when one clicks on a label. Does anyone know a way around this?

The best way to do it is to use ctrl-click on the "edit" link. This will open the editing window up in a new tab or a new window.

Hmm, I'll give that a try.

Sadly, the Blogger FAQS seem to indicate that the only way I can get all my labeled posts (beyond the most recent 20) to appear is to change templates. What, and have to figure out how to add those links to my sidebar all over again? My ole buddy Sheyna Galyan, of Books and Beliefs, tells me that she can't help me anymore because Blogger is no longer using HTML.
