[Actually I'm feeling a bit bad about writing this post, because on my own blog (Confident Writing) I've got out of the habit of using it. Which means I've got a mixture of short and long posts on my front page, and more scrolling required than is sensible. Hmm. Maybe writing this post will get me back into good habits.]
There are a few points to bear in mind though when you're using the "post continuation" function to make sure you get the most out of it, and provide your reader with the best possible reader and visitor experience.
