    I think that I'm "smarter" than this, or more dedicated, or whatever... but I often notice that if I click on a diary that is VERY long... I just move on.

    Now -- I may read 8 diaries, or 12 diaries in that same reading session. I may read longer than it would have taken me to read the original diary. In that same Internet session, I may check 3-7 other news sources. But... that super-long diary... I passed on it, and don't go back.

    I suspect this is because the Internet is a place which conditions us to the ultimate "instant gratification", or ADD type behavior. There's always another link to check out. Somehow it feels like one has accomplished more if one has read more links, vs fewer links in depth. (Your other diary worked because it was a story, an amazing story.)

    So, agreed, would be a good idea to break this up into sections, post those, and full speed ahead. People will recognize your name, and click through, read, and participate.

    Be good to each other. It matters. Bill Sali
