Article: traditional long form content: a post with an explicit title and body
Note: short content: a post or status update with just plain content and typically without a title
I started with defining the majority of posts as notes. My updated strategy will be to use the article form by default. This enables the titles to be visible when viewing the post archive by default. The notes section can then be used for short updates on specific things.
For example, I could maintain my notes on R or Docker etc as blog posts rather than mess around with pages. Whenever these posts are updated, I can add a note summarising the new additions.
