Truncated posts, or not?

Roy wrote to me after he took a look at one of my new blogs, Dharma Reiki, and suggested that I not truncate my posts.  It didn’t occur to me that some people prefer not to read blogs that have truncated posts and prefer to read blogs where the full post is presented on the page at first glance.

You all have been doing this longer than I have.  What are your views on truncated posts?  My thinking is that if I truncate my longer posts (and some of them are pretty long), a visitor to the site will see more posts on a page to choose from than if I have half a dozen long posts.  In addition, there are days I can publish quite a few posts and if a visitor doesn’t subscribe to my feeds, he/she is likely to miss some of my posts.

What do you recommend?
