I have heard complaints in the past about the number of posts on the front page of Bradsblog. For a while, I have had up to 15 posts on the main page. While this was quite convenient for many readers, there were also a lot of people who are still with dial up and the page took a lot longer to load.
I would also recommend subscribing to either an RSS feed or Email feed, just put your email address in the sidebar in the META section. This way you won’t miss out on anything.
Don’t worry, you won’t get spamed.
