    One of my current pet peeves is exactly what you’ve done here. Start an entry on the main page, make me click to continue then make me click throughtto see each point made, each photo, etc. Nope, not doing it. I’ll do the click to continue but not the endless clicking once there. If that’s your fomat, no matter how good the content may be, I won’t be reading/viewing it. I’ll put up with it for professional content or a particularly high-quality article, but momblogs, not a chance.

    For me, my biggest pet peeve is having to click through an article. If there is a list of items offered, I like to be able to scroll down, not having to wait to reload the page. It’s really hard to read stuff like that on my phone and with a 2-year-old runnign around. If t’s not all on the same page, I tend to glance and move on.

    Yeah, I kinda wish Babble would make it just a slideshow so the pics change without reloading the whole page. (Pretty please, Babble? Some of my favorite posts to read are these things where multiple bloggers sound off…but I hate that the WHOLE PAGE has to reload every single time.)

  4. Paige says:

    The slide shows. Enough already. Especially when you have to keep clicking then scroll down again. A lot of times I don’t read articles like this because it is so annoying,
