Regular readers of LDSTech’s blog may have seen a recent change in how the articles are presented. Since July we have added a “read more” button, showing only a tease of the first few sentences to let the reader know the main idea of the articles, and we want to know what our readers think of this.  Is it annoying, do you like it, or are you unaffected by it? What are your opinions?

Input from our readers is important to us. We are actively seeking your comments on the stories and articles on the LDSTech blog. How do they appear on the blog? Is the content of interest to you? What do you like about it and what do you suggest to improve it?

With that invitation, the rest is up to you.  Just add your comment below.
