Democracy in Action

Several people wrote to me yesterday to say that — by email subscription or feed reader — they could no longer view full posts, only headlines.

Blogger gives me two publishing choices: full posts or headlines-only. Since I’m trying to start sometimes posting more than once a day, that means some very long emails for those receiving TNBTTGSY in their inboxes.

I don’t want to annoy anybody. And I don’t want to make anybody unhappy. So I’m going to put this to a vote, simple majority wins.

Would you rather have the full text or the headlines?

Please leave your answer in a comment — or, if you are unable to comment, send me an email.

Thank you. :)

    >Full posts, please! I have to admit that even with blogs that I know deliver great content (that's the reason they're in my reader to begin with, after all!), I'm rarely tempted to click on headlines and read more.

    >another vote for full posts, please! i read through google reader and while i do click through to read individual entries on your blog itself, i only do so once i'm drawn in by pictures, etc. when i see just a headline it doesn't usually catch my attention when i'm skimming (even though like becks, i know you deliver great content every time!).
