Can you be a bit more specific about exactly is the bad user experience you are having? @gopherbot please add WaitingForInfo

Do you mean that the list page of each entry on Go Blog should omit the content, and add a "read more" link to go to the permalink?

The fact that the https://blog.golang.org homepage is a huge page where the latest n blog entries are included in full without being clear where one ends and the following one begins is also something that has always bugged me. I'm guessing this is what the OP is reporting.

Two different suggestions for a possible solution:

  • List the first few paragraphs of the latest 5 entries, after each one a "read more" button which links to the full entry. Change the spacing/style of the page to clearly demarcate the starting of a new homepage item
  • List on the homepage only the latest blog entry (in full), leave the read-more link at the bottom for the index with all the entries

Another possible solution:

There should be pagination and sidebar with categories

The https://blog.golang.org/ is unnecessarily long and can bore the users.

Pagination can be applied

Let’s start with only showing previews (with a “read more”) instead of full posts.

Feel free to go ahead. And just a small note that mentioning hashtags does not have any effect here.

my preference is to leave it alone

the titles are <h2> elements

but can't certain gophers use a feed reader

e.g., add Atom feed under Blog index in the sidebar

categories complicate feeds
