One of the things I will never do with this blog: purposely come up with a list that requires heaps of pageviews to get the complete list. I only insert a break and compel clicks to see more for two reasons:
- The post is really long, and I want to break it up so that readers of my blog can see multiple posts at the same time.
- The post involves a spoiler for some book/movie/television program.
Of course, it is easy for me to have some principles on this since I am not making money per pageview. Indeed, I am not making any money at all. Yes, blogspot makes easy to have ads attached, but I have refrained. I don't need the pennies. I guess if there was some money being made, then I might feel the need to increase the click-rate by coming up with slideshows and lists that require eleven clicks for a top-ten list. Until I succumb to temptation, the Spew will remain a minimal click zone.
My easiest New Year's Resolution--not to page through the gratuitous slideshows at Foreignpolicy.com (otherwise, one of my favorite sites) and other places.
