A website is truly personal if it hosts your blog as well, this place of the internet where you can place your thoughts about anything!

Latest post preview in Index page

First of all, you get a preview of the latest post in the index, in order to attract the visitor to visit your blog. The size of this preview is defined by:

post-preview-words: 96

Feel free to experiment with different sizes, and pick the best for you :smile:

paginate: 5
