RSS Feeds, full or excerpt... How do you eat yours?
RSS has become the norm for people looking to keep track of articles written on other sites, but how do you consume your feeds. Do you read whole lengthy articles from the sites you subscribe to in you RSS reader or do you, like me, click through and read them on the site they were intended to be published on?
This is something I have thought a lot about in the past and while I personally feel it is important to read an article in context, on the publishers site, I realise that everybody is going to have a differing opinion.
The RSS Feed for this site displays the full articles, no matter if its one sentence or multiple, giving you the opportunity to do with my content as you see fit. I’ve learned from past experiences that this is probably the kindest option to your readers, I’d much rather someone read my words in their favourite feed reader than not at all.
So, where are you reading this and how do you publish your RSS Feeds?
