Regina Cannot Explain It All


I'm Regina Small. I'm a writer and editor in NYC. I have a lot of opinions.


Interests include: sci-fi/fantasy, literature, summertime daydrinking, trying to be a better person, fancy manicures, philosophy, pictures for sad children, and the role of irony in the modern world. And fandom, of course.

I have another blog dedicated exclusively to science fiction/fantasy. Read it here.

If you haven’t yet heard, Tumblr is experimenting with a “Read more” feature to truncate lengthy posts on your dashboard (or rather, give users the option to truncate their posts to make them suitable for dashboard viewing). But I was disappointed to find that once you click “Read more,” you’re directed away from your dashboard to the individual blog post; this seems like it might actually discourage the people who would read a longer, text-y post because it might mean losing their places in their dashboard reading. Doesn’t it make more sense for “read more” to reveal the rest of the post on your dashboard? Users who aren’t interested in the post can just scroll past, and those who are can read the entire entry without having to leave the one page where I suspect most people do their reading.

(Old-school bloggers: Does anyone remember how LiveJournal’s “Read more” feature worked on your “Friends” page? Did clicking direct you to the individual post?)
