"Blog" Ruined for Everyone

I have noticed two distressing and ruinous things about the "PREVIOUS POSTS" section of this "blog," now that we have made the transition to the improved world of "blogging." Take a title such as "Misspelling, Long Unremarked Upon, Reveals Crushing Lack of Interest in 'Blog'." In the olden days, the entire title would appear in the "PREVIOUS POSTS" column. Now, with the compulsory new version of the "blog," the title is truncated like so: "Misspelling, Long Unremarked Upon, Reveals Crushin..." What is this telling the children of our nation? If something is too long, just give up on it? Is this the message of the new "blogging" world? Also, in the olden days, when one "clicked" on an older "post," such as "Computers Are Great", the "PREVIOUS POSTS" column would show the titles of the ten "posts" PREVIOUS to that one. Perhaps one would be intrigued by the title "Philosophers Are Just Like You and Me!" or charmed by the insouciant "Goober Says Hey." Now, however, as far as I can tell, when you "click" on those old "posts," the "PREVIOUS POSTS" column contains the ten CURRENT "posts," which are not "previous" to the "classic" "posts" in question at all! That means a lot more work for you, the busy "blog" reader, who has so much to do and so many places to go in these trying modern times! I just wanted to say how sorry I am for adding to your woes. I won't blame you if you never visit again. But I will miss you!
