Yeah, that actually bothers me because I want to write more resource laden articles (posts), but now you are forced to break it up into a series. The web has become this large 600 word sound byte studio of people regurgitating other established blogs and not really digging into the sources.
BUT...there is a place for the evergreen still. I write teasers into longer articles now.
