For my Blogger Friends...

Just a quick post for all those of my Blogger friends who have allowed their full posts to show up in their RSS feeds... thank you guys! You cannot even begin to realize how much I appreciate this little gesture of kindness towards my eyes!

In these harsh times, of insanely flashy blog templates, and more and more bloggers opting to give only a small portion of their blog posts to RSS readers, your decision to not fall for number games earns a silent prayer for you every time I read your latest posts in my Google Reader.

I know that the abridged RSS feed would probably get you more traffic, as people would have to actually visit your blog to read your posts. I know that the amount of time spent on your blog by your visitors would also increase, because they won't be visiting only to leave a comment; they'll also spend time there reading your post first.

However, at the end of the day, the fact remains that over 90% of you (in my blog community, that is) are just personal bloggers. And I see no reason how better statistics on Google Analytics can be of any advantage to you. I guess you see that too. And that is why you still allow the RSS readers to show your full post.


Well, thanks. Your one decision makes life a lot simpler for me. I don't have to keep track of N different tabs and windows to follow your posts. I don't have to strain at my screen to read multi-colored text against black or some other funny background. I don't have to fiddle with the text-size settings in my browser. And I don't get a headache watching too many high-contrast objects (images, advertisements, widgets) in the same screen, for a prolonged length of time.

Phewwww!
