Tonight I modified my blog's template to allow for "expandable posts" (a.k.a "jumps"). These are the things where you can have a short summary of the post, and then have a link like "Click to continue reading..." for those who want to read/see more.
In addition to upping my hit-count, this will also slim down the main page so that it'd be easier to scan through recent posts. I've felt guilty after posting photo-intensive trip reports. Well, now I can sleep easier.
Though this update to the template affects all posts. So the link at the end of all the past posts... they're only false promises of more (sorry). I may go back and try to retro-fit some of my more popular posts, but anyways, let's all practice this "expanded post" deal.
Here's a joke (and it's a fart joke... classy, I know):
Doctor: "What seems to be the problem?"
Patient: "Doc, I've got the farts. I mean I fart all the time."
The Doctor nods, "Hmm..."
Patient: "My farts do not stink and you can't hear them. It's just that I fart all the time. Look, we've been talking here for about 10 minutes and I've farted five times. You didn't hear them and you don't smell them, do you?"
He picks up his pad and writes out a prescription.
The patient is thrilled "Great doc. This prescription, will it really clear up my farts?"
"No," sighs the Doctor, "The prescription is to clear your sinuses. Next week I want you back here for a hearing test."
Anyways, we'll see how this expanded post thing goes. Leave a comment and let me know if you like this, don't like this, or can make this better. Thanks! :)
