I did fiddle around a bit today trying to get a hack to work for splitting long posts into an initial para or two, with the rest to be revealed by hitting a “Read more” link (if you want to know how to do it in Blogger, see here). But in the end, I decided I didn’t like the result. It’s not as if even my longest posts are more than about half-a-dozen moderate sized paragraphs (and it is a good discipline to keep it like that): so it is in any case easy enough to scan to the end of one post to jump on to the next. I’ll stick to the current simple format.
The Daughter recommended that I try OmniFocus ‘task management’ software which implements Getting Things Done type lists. Well, it’s not that I haven’t tasks to do, and the GTD idea really does work. But, having played about a bit with the beta version you can download, I reckon my life isn’t so cluttered that carrying on using NoteBook and iCal won’t work for me. Again, I think I’ll stick to the simpler thing.
