Sorry for the non-useful post, but I’m looking for a bit of feedback. Some of you may have noticed that as of a couple of months ago I changed the way I display trip reports on the main page of the blog. In the past I’d just post them as I would any other post, and the entire installment would appear on the main page of the blog, even if it included 100 pictures. Many complained this slowed down the main page of the blog too much.
As a result I now use the “read more” tag, whereby I’ll post trip reports and insert a “read more” link after the first few pictures, so that you can click on the link if you want to read the entire trip report. I do this exclusively for trip reports since they’re often super-long.
Here’s an example with yesterday’s review of the W Times Square, whereby I inserted the “read more” tag after the third picture:
I realize this is incredibly minor and not something most of you guys probably lose sleep over (if you do, I owe you a Diet Coke with lime), though I do post a lot of trip reports and want to make sure I’m posting them the way you guys prefer. I mention this because I got a Tweet this morning asking if I could return to the old method of posting the entire trip reports on the front page.
With that in mind, I have a poll below, and would appreciate if you guys could let me know your preferred method — posting the entire trip report on the main page of the blog so it’s easy to access, or having the “read more” tag so that the main blog page isn’t so cluttered? I’ll go with whichever method you guys prefer.
