I'm trialling a new TypePad Widget called LinkWithin that produces the "You might like these stories" buttons at the bottom of each post. They're automatically generated based on keywords, so they're not always relevant, and on this post I'm sure they won't be. Let me know if these are useful or just distracting. So far I like them.
Also, my practice is to compress posts that are more than a few days old, so that the main page shows just a paragraph or two and then the "Continue reading" link. Is this link prominent enough? Do the LinkWithin buttons distract from it? Let me know. We aim to please here.
