Please, if you wish to offer RSS feeds, give us the full articles and not just excerpts. Or don’t offer feeds at all.

    I hate it when bloggers only offer partial feeds, as I love reading in my RSS application.

    Good to know I’m not alone 🙂

    Yea, I offer full feeds as well. I think full feeds will entice the reader to keep reading; your little excerpts have to be spectacular if you can’t capture their attention.

    Exactly Marvin, and even then I might be too lazy to “click on”. NewsFire, to me, has replaced my browser for reading blogs. It’s not a way to stay on top of the latest headlines – it’s the way I *read* blogs.

    I agree. I think some bloggers think that headlines will make people visit their blog and somehow get more traffic.


    Make things easy for your readers, even at your perceived lack of traffic. It will lead to more traffic in the future.

    My 2 cents.

    Does it really matter if I read a blog in a feed reader or in a browser? It’s all still traffic isn’t it? The users should be in focus, not yourself. Good points Paul 🙂
