But I do try! I thought those last bulky posts about the festival got a bit long, and from looking at my sitemeter stats, so did you...I asked James last night, "do you think my blog looks nice?" Totally not fishing for complements, but actually wanting some magical insights into making my blog look better. And he said, lovely man that he is, that it looks good, but maybe those last few posts about the festival were too long. Has he read them yet? NO. He did get walking pneumonia after the festival so I guess he's got that going for him. Yeah, that was super weird! Thank goodness he's feeling better now. So we discussed me figuring out how to shorten the visible portion of my posts on the main blog page and then include a "read more" link to the full post. It turns out that is called an "expandable post summary" in Blogger. I fooled around with multiple ways of doing it and so far am stuck with the "Continue reading..." link at the bottom of each post, which is totally unnecessary, but as of this moment in my knowledge of html, unavoidable. Sorry to muck things up, fabulous readers, but I'll keep trying to smooth this out. It's obviously possible to get around it, but I just haven't figured it out yet.
