Sometimes I just want to add quick notes but it's not qualify as proper post. It's something similar to coderwall.com. Maybe we can add another flag like indexed: false and this post will not appear in any feed. But it still public with proper url, or maybe you can view it all at specific url like dev.to/snippets/, and people can still react or comment on that post. It just to reduce some clutter on the main feeds from some half finished notes.

// , I like this idea, although I like seeing what is going through your mind. Your feed is one of the first I ever followed on dev.to!

I basically came with this idea after bumping into my old notes on coderwall.com. With coderwall, it quite natural for me to dump out some snippet for example a new interesting cli flags I just found. Here, I'm a bit hesitant to do so as I afraid it just polluting the main feed and that stuff probably will just a noise to most people.
