Some Basic Blog Mechanics
Dear regular readers, I have two mechanical points to discuss with you today.
First, for everyone: I am thinking about “cutting” my posts such that only a short portion of the post appears on the main blog page and RSS feeds, with a “read more” link to take you to the full post. Different blogs do it differently, some posting in entirety, others cutting after a few paragraphs, and still others cutting after just a few sentences. So before I make the decision to cut posts, I’d like feedback from those of you who read this blog regularly regarding what would work best for you, and then I can take that into consideration when I decide. Please fill out the poll and feel free to clarify as necessary in the comments. Thanks!
Second, for those of you who are reading this blog on Google Reader: Reader William has kindly informed me that if you added this blog to your Google Reader feed within the first week or two of it being up, it comes up as “Untitled” instead of as “Kataphatic.” This is because it took me a couple weeks to figure out how to put the title in there without having it show up right over the top of my custom header. If you added the feed before I fixed it, and you are seeing my blog come up as “Untitled” on your Google Reader, you can just take it off and re-add it to fix the problem.
