    2. I've changed it a lot of times... what's the number of posts that should be showing?

      Delete
    3. Remember one thing you have to keep the post count same in your blog settings and pagination widget.

      There is a limit of 1mb from blogger side, only 1mb of images or text you can show in home page and you are exceeding that limit and that is the reason rest of the post is going on next page, there is not any solution, but you can try page break after 1st paragraph in every post, may be this will help.
