New Layout To Blog. Comments? Suggestions?

People have been complaining about having to scroll through long posts they are not interested in, just to see what else is on the site. So, I changed the layout, where now there will only be a small part of each post on the main page, and if someone wants to continue reading they click on [Read More...] to read the rest of the post.

The downside of this new layout is that people will have to click to finish reading a post instead of just seeing it on the main page. I have heard comments so far in favor of both ways. I will leave it like this for a short while, and see how it goes.

The way it is set up now, the [Read More...] link will appear on every post when reading it on the main page, regardless if the whole post appears on the main page or just the beginning.

Please let me know what you think.

I like it, but why does it open the article in a new tab?

I changed it to open on the same page.

Shim, I might try that one day, thanks for the suggestion.
Anon, I am thinking of posting some of the articles in full for a day or two, then changing it to only the first part, we'll see.
