It would be cool to have small square posts 3 in the viewport and the last one with about 10% visibility (swipeable on mobile) where we can select featured articles to display.
These post squares would show the title, maybe cover image or the first 5-7 lines of preview text.

Any thoughts? In my opinion this would drastically improve the visibility of certain posts and make it more fun to engage with the featured posts.
