Are Excerpts a Good Thing ?
One thing I'm really wondering is :
Should I use excerpts ?
On the plus side :
- The list is easier to read & shorter to parse. You can then just click on the link that are interesting to you
- I can manage to see which posts are mostly read (useful ?) since the comments aren't a good indicator
- Mostly all my readers comes from Google. Having a little list and only then content on a dedicated page seems to help being nicely referenced on more specifics, hence ususally more relevant topics.
On the down side :
- The RSS flow and the front page list are truncated. You are one click further to the whole story.
- It seems quite arrogant to force the reader to come to your site.
I just edited my articles to have an excerpt when it is quite long.
What do you think ?
 It is very far from being a very famous blog with hordes of readers :-p
