@Trent Walton - Would love to get your thoughts on ways to make long-form writing for the web a friendlier experience. I've done everything I can on this site to make it as easy to read as possible, and responsive to different devices. However, getting visitors to read a long chapter online is difficult, to say the least. It helps if they move it to a reading tool like Readability or Instapaper. What else can be done?
Some interesting data: cloud.smallparade.com
I have some JS in place that tracks scroll depth on long pages. Only 12% of visitors scrolled all the way to the bottom. Obviously there is a margin of error here, but that's a pretty low number.
