Personally, I like the other style better where you go in-depth into a particular article. But I could see how this style is much easier and less time consuming and gives a broad range of articles at one time.

Just as a note, I may feel this way because I tend to read similar content. So there may be a bias on my part. ;-)

Haha, Tiptoe- my mom said the same thing.

The massive list of links is a little bit easier to compile, and I do like how it covers a broader range of topics. I also tend to prefer a little more in-depth coverage on just a few things, but I'm not sure if everyone likes the same few things that I like!

Excellent format- So much easier to pick and choose what to read, my opinion natch.

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
