back when I was blogging on github, I used a very pretty theme called “Beautiful Jekyll” that has a feature of adding a cover image to a post, and showing a preview in the main blog’s page with some effects: it’s a circle, it’s grey but shows the true colours on hover, and it’s part of the first paragraph.
It’s a bit hard to explain but here is an example:
I am not good enough at CSS to figure it out by myself, but can this be achieved somehow on a write.as blog?
I post art sometimes, and I’d like it to be visible on the main page, but if it’s shown full-size in the main page of the blog it’s a bit “awkward”.
(I don’t want to force users to scroll down a huge image if they are skimming the blog and looking for other posts)
