A quick way to give your blog a new look is to set the Front Page to display excerpts of posts with highlighted images. Excerpts allow you to present multiple posts for new readers to peruse quickly. Then, the reader can click Read more next to any post to read the rest of it.
To set up excerpts, go to Settings > Posts and check the box to Display excerpts. You'll then have the option to Show a featured image. Click Save Changes to update your blog. Learn more.
With excerpts selected, an additional benefit is that the Front Page will load quickly even if you have opted to display a larger number of posts.
