It in my decision on Rose DesRochers- World Outside my Window to use partial text on my RSS feed. It has been suggested on my Delurk post that I should switch to full feed.
Now don’t get me wrong; I’m all for full text feeds, but I don’t plan to switch my blog feed to full. You may be wondering why?
Well I would hope that the first few sentences of my post, would make you want to read the whole article and maybe even comment. If it doesn’t then I guess there is nothing I can do.
The biggest problem with full feeds is the ease for with which people can steal your content. One of my main reasons for choosing partial feeds is that too many people are already scraping my content. I don’t want to give these sploggers my full content.
While I appreciate your suggestions, I won’t be switching.
So call me an RSS tease or what you will- if you value my content then you are just going to have to come to my blog to see what I have to say.If you liked this post, why not buy me a coffee?
