Learn how to add featured images to your posts

As I started building my blog, I realized it would be really nice to have a featured image that appears above my blog post. The image gets a reader’s attention and sets the tone for the content they will read. In this 2-part video series, I show you how to do that using the standard minima site Jekyll ships with. You can take these ideas and concepts and add them to your site.

I am an occasional developer, so if you have any insights on how to improve, please feel free to offer your constructive comments. On my actual website, you will see I created a shared component that can be reused throughout the site. If you are interested in learning how to do that, let me know in the comments.
