While writing a post in blogger post editor there is an option called "Jump Break" which can be used to insert the read more link anywhere you want in the post. See the image below.

That option is actually used to insert the Read More link inside a post in blogger. Click this option where you want to insert the Read More link. Usually people insert it after the first paragraph.

Inserting this Link will only show that part of the post that is above the "jump break" on the home page. In place of the remaining post it will show a link as 'read more' to read the full post.

You can actually change this text link to an image link or stylish button link.Now let us see how to change this link to buttons.

    2. Answer 1) add <p align='right'> before img url and </p> at the end.
      your image code will look like this :

      <p align='right'><img src="http://image-URL.png"/></p>

      answer 2) add target="_blank" in image url. Like this

      <img target="_blank" src="http://image-URL.png"/>
