Full RSS Now Available

Based on recent conversations at the Dragon Federation, the response to Jeff's question based on that discussion over at Fantasy Book News & Reviews, and the latest post at Racy Romance Reviews, I've changed the RSS feed to full text. I never really thought it mattered that much if it was partial or full since personally it doesn't matter to me if it's a partial feed or full when I subscribe to a blog. But I see it matters an awful lot to most other people, so I'm making it more convenient.

It really is more convenient for me. I love visiting the websites too, but I prefer reading blog posts on my reader in the full without having to click on every post time and again.

Great improvement. :)

I was surprised by the answers, too. It didn't really matter to me if I had to click through, either. But we are apparently in the minority :)

Gosh, I never expected my little rant to actually improve my reading life!

One more thing -- how are you liking our weather???

Thea said...

Thank you Kristen :p I'm a big fan of the full feed. Woohoo!

Jayden - I'm glad to hear it is a big improvement for you. If I'd known how much of a big deal it was to a lot of people, I would have done it sooner.

Jeff - I guess we are in the minority. It just never seemed like that big of a deal to me.

Jessica - I'd already been thinking about changing to full RSS, but your rant really convinced me to do so immediately. :) Regarding the weather - I told a coworker this morning that I've decided Maine is uninhabitable. What do you think of it?

Thea - Glad to hear you like the change too! :)

By humans, most definitely.

Deer and moose seem ok with it.

Probably some supes like it, too, although I confess I have yet to come across a race of beings in fiction that love the cold as much as they would have to to love Maine.

Jessica - That's true. The animals should stay and the rest of those in Maine should move south, at least for about 6 months out of the year.

I don't know how people in Alaska and Canada manage. Lately it only takes about two minutes outside before my face feels like it's going to freeze off.

Fab. I'm one of those who commented on Dragon Federation. Much prefer the full feed.

Thanks so much :o)

Wend - Thanks for your input over at Dragon Federation! It was very helpful to hear everyone's opinion.
