#!markdown I fully agree. It comes down to how you judge successful content. Eye candy and short attention span theater will bring in more clicks on the short term, but adding in periodic thoughtful and deeply engaging content will bring the reader back more frequently. Or at least cause the readers who appreciate that type of content to browse more carefully and sample more often. Some of the best written content I've experienced of late is from Riley Macintosh's Character pieces. I have those bookmarked and re-read them. Probably long after the click-tallies have been taken. I go back more frequently to the sites I feel will provide deeper content. Vital is certainly low on my list lately, for this exact reason.
