How would you present a list of blog entries with small word count from 50 to 100 words? So that you have a list of clickable links of titles that takes you to that blog entry with small word count?

    How are you displaying it at the moment? What is wrong with the way you are doing it? It's hard to provide you with a solution if you've not really stated what the problem that you currently have is. – JonW Jun 30 '17 at 11:31
  • If all the entries are 50-100 words, I don't think I'd want clickable links to take me to each one, I'd probably prefer to just read them "in-page" in a stream, rather like the comments on Stack Exchange sites. If some of the entries go above a certain threshold (e.g. 120 words), then you could show the first 100 words with a "Read more" style link (that either expanded in-page or displayed the full entry in another page). (For context, you question is about 40 words; this comment about 90 words). – TripeHound Jun 30 '17 at 13:38

Like @JonW mentioned, I can't say whether your current approach is in fact incorrect. But if you're starting from scratch then take the Stack Exchange approach.

  • Make headers/title mandatory for each blog post and have a word limit for it
  • If not, select a word limit that fits the list view of the blog. Use ellipses to block out the overflowing elements
