Note, Note, Note-orious

I've made a change to my Ghost theme: each post is now rendered in full on the index page, instead of displaying an excerpt.

Why do this? Well, I wanted my posts to be more like notes; quick thoughts and observations that come to me throughout the day. Most of these 'notes' will be just a hundred words or so. A longer excerpt, essentially.

I also prefer the visual variety of different length posts. Scrolling down the homepage is now more interesting because each post isn't restricted to a particular character count.

Should I want to write a lengthier post I simply tag it as an article. The loop in my Ghost theme will then display an excerpt for that post, rather than the entire post contents.

Let the note taking begin...
