As a follow-up to this post, I went back to the WSJ site. They’re still using that inadvisable multi-page format, so I’ve done the logical thing: dropped them from the list of blogs that I follow.
If you’ve never followed them, here’s why I liked them: they had timely photos, in large sizes that made an excellent addendum to the news.
This is similar to The Big Picture, who remains on my lists. The WSJ covers many subjects each day. The Big Picture focuses on a single subject, but in depth. They normally worked very well together, supplementing each other’s content. Dare I say: there was synergy, having them both in the same blogroll.
So now out goes the WSJ. Is there a replacement that won’t irritate me to the point of vulgarity? If so, I haven’t found it yet.
Note: I know, the LA Times has tried to follow the WSJ’s lead with their Framework site. Somehow they have managed to make it even more frustrating than the WSJ’s site.
