Have you ever thought about using the "read more" option that most sites feature?

It would really come in handy for lengthy list posts like these that take up nearly the whole home page.

Just curious.

J- For some reason the template I use doesn't support them. I've tried multiple times to add the feature but it doesn't work.

I'll give it a shot again in the near future though.

you can add the html code from a third party to your template

I use Blogger, too, and that's what I did.
