…pointless or necessary?
I’m always curious to find out what my readers like about my blog and also, what they don’t like, which leads me onto the following topic.
I use the ‘read more’ tag on a majority of my posts because I feel like displaying too much text is off-putting and that’s not the reaction I want. However, I wonder if the ‘read more’ tag puts people off. If they notice there is a read more element to a post, does that make them think ‘this post is going to be too long, I don’t want to read it’.
When viewing other blogs, the read more tag does not phase me – I’ll happily click through and read what they have to say. I guess it could be up to the reader and their habits, but I’m just debating whether or not I should remove the tag from my posts.
What do you think of the ‘read more’ tag – is it pointless or necessary? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
