Do you tag surf? Yeah, me too. It can be fun. It can be dangerous too, bumping into crazies. One lady got all upset with me the other day because I said: Since I do not own any goats or cows, I want to get rid of most of the grass in my yard.
I’m an unrepentant Grass Killer, apparently. Gasp! Kook-a-roo naturalist. It’s a good thing I didn’t tell her that I kill fire ants too.
Anyway, I got a real beef with tag-surfing. Most people don’t know about the Split Content option on their menu bar. It’s between the link icon and the ABC icon on Add New Post. I really wish more people would use it. Do you know how boring it is to scroll past a long post and endless pictures that you don’t want to see???
There are added benefits to using Split Content. You don’t stuff your subscriber’s e-mail with a long post, you don’t hog the landscape on tag surfing and if they click the ‘read more’ link, it will make a hit on your blog. (Think about it: If they can read your entire post in the In-box of an email or on the tag surfer, then they don’t have to go to your blog to finish reading.) And when they finally do get to your blog, one page will show a lot more posts and titles. And it just looks nicer, neater.
Plus: it will teach you to punch-up your opening lines. And I will get to read more posts on tag surfer.
Will the whole world change for me right now???
