I have decided to increase the number of posts on display on the front page from 8 to 12.
I average just over a post per day. So past posts vanish quite quickly. Increasingly, I am adding postscripts, updating posts including featuring particular comments.
My feeling is that a larger number of display posts will make it easier to treat and read this blog as something like a specialist and interactive magazine.
I am also going to take more time to update posts, treating the displayed 12 posts not as something static, but as work in progress.
