RSS Feed Update

Email  Print Print  

I’d like to say hello to all the new readers of the site and a hearty thank you to those of you who have taken the time to leave advice, criticisms, requests, or just a plain old comment. For some of my posts, it’s the comments that give it any value whatsoever and for that I thank you. 🙂

For those of you who haven’t yet discovered Really Simple Syndication (RSS), I want to introduce you to it. If you use an aggregator, using RSS let’s you see the site quickly. The only downside is that a lot of the aggregators won’t let you leave comments so ultimately, coming to the site to comment on something will still be necessary. I’ve since decided to remove the full post syndication because I’ve found a lot of sites just republishing the feed and I don’t want to deal with tracking them down, having them give me credit, etc. I’m sorry to have to do this but until further notice I’m only posting summaries via the RSS feed.

    I’ve gone back and forth about this myself… Full feeds or summaries? I’ve settled on full feeds, as I figure that gives people the most flexibility — read the RSS in full, or come visit if something interests them.

    I do full feeds as well, at least for now. Another thing to look out for is something simply stealing your content as their own. Just added your new feed, thanks!

    Bummer. I really don’t like summary feeds, but I’ve considered doing the same thing for the same reason. I wonder… Is there a way of truncating your feed in WordPress such that it breaks at the quicktag rather than cutting it off after a set number of characters? This would allow for more natural breaks, and would make it less awkward to follow your posts in a reader.

    By the way,the live comment preview box below is cool. Is that a plugin?
