I’ve mentioned a time or two how much truncated posts are my personal blogging peeve. Not that I don’t love those of you who do, BUT I have to be honest and let you know that truncated posts end up on the bottom of my “to read” pile. The main reason? I do not want a bunch of blogs in my browsing history, especially at work. A secondary reason is that since many truncated blogs have oodles of ads on them, they take forever and when someone – like me – lives in the boonies and requires wireless internet connection, I get a little impatient waiting, waiting, waiting and by the time the page loads, someone in my family is demanding my immediate attention with some crying and whining. It is not always the children, either.
I’d like to know what your opinion is on truncated posts (posts that only show the first couple of sentences of a post in a reader). And if you don’t like how biased I am, you could always write a post about grammatically challenged bloggers who don’t like the choices other bloggers make with their blogs.
P.S. There’s a poll imbedded in this post, just in case you had no idea where I was going with this.
