shed skids

I am working on a 10x16 shed foundation. I have placed concrete blocks to put the skids on. I had read somewhere that the concrete blocks should not be at the end of the skids but I should keep them about a foot in. In other words the skids will overhang. Is this true?

My neighbor has his blocks at the ends for the last 3 years and hasn't had a problem, but his shed is smaller then yours.

Around here, once a shed is bigger then 10x12, most shed builders/sellers do not recommend setting a shed on blocks. They want them put on a concrete slab or on gravel.
