Dealing with long posts

Glen mentioned a concern for the length of his blog page in his post: HSC Advanced English Blog Advancing!.

Many other blog hosts (and certainly most more-sophisticated blog software that you can install yourself like Wordpress, which I used for provide a simple tag such as <more> that can be added to a post to make only the text up until that point display on the main page and the <more> will show as a link that will take you to the full post.

Blogger doesn't have that facility, yet, but they do give instructions on how you can achieve this effect by using a trick with CSS (something else for my "Blogger wishlist"!).

The relevant help post is How can I create expandable post summaries? if you're feeling game.
