First off, let’s finalize the date for the next meet up. As mentioned in our Facebook group, we’re going to have it on March 12 at Libreria. Let me know who’ll be able to make it and if you plan to join the book swap (details about the swap can be found here).
For this week’s discussion, let’s talk about truncated feeds in readers. Each blogger has the option to only show excerpts or the full post whenever he or she sets up his feeds. When followers subscribe to the blog, they can either see a truncated feed or a full blog post depending on the blogger’s settings. Here are a couple of questions for you guys, do you truncate your feeds or not? Why do you or do you not truncate your feed? Do you think full blog feeds take away visitors from your blog? Does truncating your feed ensure that more people visit your blog and therefore increase your stats?
Thanks for the blogger who suggested this topic! 🙂
