Do You Go Back Pages to Read What Others Have Written?

Once you have written more than 10 articles, they are no longer on the front page of your profile. For those of us who have written more than 100, we have 10 pages plus. Some of this material is valuable, but I suspect is never seen as most readers will only read the first few that can be easily accessed. I doubt that most people would delve into anything that is not "easy." One of the things that I want to start to do is to make a list of those, whom I follow, and then concentrate on going through their entire list. I simply wish it were easier to see a list of all articles at a glance from any one particular writer. Perhaps, there is an easier way that I just haven't discovered yet.

No, I only read what is at the top of my notifications list.

I only read it when I have much time to do it.

CoralLevang I go back on some members pages. I look through them and if I find one that is interesting to me I will read it. And most likely comment.

I will occasionally go back, but usually I am crunched for time, so I read what I can see. Some people are so exciting to read that it is worth it to take the time and go through a few pages.

I may sometimes go back a page or two through someone's article list, but I usually concentrate on the most recent ten. Recently, someone here went through my entire article list, all the way from the beginning, and left a comment on most of them. I was tremendously flattered by that. I've been thinking about doing that for someone else, as a sort of "pay it forward" kind of a thing.

Sometimes I read old articles. If there are lots of articles I don't start from the beginning, but I often read some of the old articles that have disappeared from the front page.

CoralLevang good point, if there is anything that PersonaPaper could improve is on that aspect.

I'm a mix of the above, so voted Other. Depends on who the person is, what they write about. Sometimes I go back a few pages, often I don't.

Yes, I do make it a habit to go back and read the first post of the PPers that I connect with. This is usually the introductory post of these members. I also take time to read old posts.

Yes I do. If you remember that I am really trying so hard to make a 100 to 200 comments everytime I have time here in persona, and when the homepage runout of post to comment with, I go back to my connections post, and mostly I have also read and comment on the first part of their profile page so I tend to find an article in their previous pages. God bless.

I try to read people's older stuff. I wish the categories weren't restricted to just what's trending and recent entries. For example, it would be nice to peruse all the pages of Travel. A suggestion to administration is to make categories just as accessible as members in being able to see back pages of older material.

I try to take some time monthly at least to pick a member and read all of their stuff. I just don't have time to that more often.
