I have noticed lately that my posts are increasingly verbose.  (Well, after all, I am a lawyer, and so short winded is not my strong suit. )  Other blogs that have longer posts often abridge them on the home page, with a link to the rest of the post for those who want to read the whole thing.
I have considered employing that approach for longer entries, but I am torn.  On one hand, I find such abridged posts irritating.  It’s just me but I want to see the whole thing before I start reading.  On the other hand, using the abridged method allows readers to peruse headlines more easily by not having to scroll down the page so far.  Six of one, half dozen of the other...

As I ponder this, if you have a moment, please let me know what you think.  Gracias.
