Revisiting a blogging pet peeve

I’m sitting in the doctor’s office planning on catching up on my blog reading via rss feed. One catches my eye and it’s truncated. Difficult to get to the original post from the feed.

I know I’m not the only one who does tons of reading on the phone. Fortunately there aren’t too many blogs I subscribe to that do this.

  1. If you feel so bold you may want to let them know. I never even considered that although I only truncated for a very short time. Some want people to come to their site for various reasons like ads.

  2. Yes, I think part of it is to get hits (for whatever reason – ads is a good one). I’ve also heard a few people mention content stealing happens on feeds.

    I also truncated for a very brief period, but when I saw them in the feed, I thought it looked like a blatant attempt for clicking through. 😛

    I don’t know how bold I feel about telling them – they aren’t folks I regularly converse with. AND They obviously don’t read my blog! 😉 I may just drop those from my feed because it is aggravating.

  3. I realized that being read was more important than hits anyway, so while for a year and half I truncated, I gave it up – and it seems to have worked well.

  4. Yes, Joel truncated, and I complained to him, and he was very gracious about it. I do a lot of reading on my iPhone, and if the posts are truncated, I simply don’t read them. If I remember to, I might read it when I get to my pc, but that’s rare. I’m down…
