Blog Posts Homepage Section
The Turbo theme includes the ability to add a 'Blog Posts' section on your homepage. The 'Blog Posts' homepage section will display the most recent posts available in your/one of your Blogs.
Having a Blog in general is a great way to build a sense of community around your company and enabling the 'Blog Post' section on the homepage serves as an introduction where your customers can then click in to discover more and read content that you're sharing!
The 'Blog Posts' section can display 2-4 posts on your homepage which will be the most recent posts. In order to set up the Blog Posts section, click into Customize (your Theme Editor) > Sections > Add Section > Blog Posts.
