I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

Informal Poll:

So. I'm going to need you, gentle reader, to leave your feedback via comments. Anonymous, Public, whatever.

But if you're a regular, please vote, because I aim to please, and I'd hate to think that the dewy gems of literature that pour forth from my digits are going unread and unappreciated.

Here's the issue: I realize that some of my posts are a little long.

Do you read the whole things?

Or Do you stop after a couple paragraphs?

Now, I won't lie and say that I read allllllll of eeeevery post eeeeever, but I generally read the whole thing. As a rule. But, I'm also frequently bored at work.

So. With the long posts. Are you reading them? Or are you skimming the long ones?

Or skipping them altogether?

Your feedback is appreciated.

I love you, but no. I don't generally read all of the long posts, unless I'm very bored at work. I love, love, love the short to medium length posts. And now that I fixed my computer problem, I love the YouTube posts, as well. You know I love you, but sometimes you are a little verbose. (Did I say love enough not to hurt your feelings?)

If the topic piques my interest, I'll read a long post. If you don't catch my attention in the first few sentences, I won't. I'm not wild about movie clips, but it's my computer's problem, not mine. Most of the time I like them short and sweet. Infact, I'd rather read 6 or 7 short bits than 1 long bit. Attention span and all that.

Okay. Duly noted. Other people? Mike? Jess? Erik? I know where you stand, MM. And Jooly.

And no, Laura, you didn't hurt my feelings. :)

I asked, didn't I? I type really quickly, so a post gets very long, very fast.

As for you, RT, where did your blog go? It's busted!

hey-o! i agree with rootietoot: if i like the topic, i will read every word. If the topic isn't my cup of tea, then I will more than likely read very quickly and try and pick up the most outrageous parts. movie posts are OK, but I don't have speakers at work. and i try not to just sit at the comp when i am home (that is a total lie).

I guess that would explain the lack of commentary the past few days. I thought it was right where I left it.

Nope. All I see is your banner and an arrow that says "This is a bar where text could go."

As far as I can see, your blog is offline.

I read too much all day to read your long posts in their entirety. I will frequently skim from the middle to the end to see if there is any funny profanity and then might pick up again there. Then again, I really shouldn't comment on long posts, as I'm guilty of writing them myself. Still, your blog consistently cracks me up!

I read 'em. But that's because a) I can read fast b) I'm jewish and we like to do annoying things like read long blog posts (that sometimess are a bit verbose :) so that we can kvetch later.

Thanks, Becks. :) I knew there was a reason I liked you when Alli introduced us -- even though you subsequently caused me to join ASM and be entirely clueless about anything I was doing while fighting for good...

I still don't know what an "appropriation" is. (Yes, actually, I do. Seven years later.)

I read them all, but I am also frequently bored out of my mind at work. When I'm busy at work, I catch up on your blog a few days later. Hence, why my posts are usually weeks after you write! I have always been riveted by your every word!

Umm... I read them all, every word, at some point. If I like the topic, I'll read it right away. Otherwise, I come back later and read the whole thing. I'll be a more accurate representation of your blog readers now-- you know I read every word while I was studying and generally being lazy :)

I read the long ones thoroughly if its a topic I love (bashing Miami generally, bashing Miami drivers, bashing Miami service people, etc.). If it isn't a fav topic then I will skim it unless I am at work, in which case I read every last word.

Don't change!

I have read enough of your posts to know that even though they are long I should stick with it because it is usually worth it at the end.

But I'll admit to skimming the middle sometimes.

Here's one problem though-- when you take away posts you already put up :( Makes me sad :(

I usually read them all, unless they're about a topic I do not relate to well. Keep the YouTube posts - your childhood is my childhood.
