RSS is really simple syndication, a way to “publish” new or modified content out. Asktom has had RSS for quite a while and I’ve had it enabled on this blog since the very beginning. I’m curious though as to how many people use RSS day to day?
So vote and let’s see what we see. I had a question on another blog:
any chance you can give us full text RSS feeds?
This is in regards to the fact that I publish only a bit of the beginning of the blog — not the entire entry via RSS. I did this for two reasons:
- I’m curious as to how many people read it – unless the come to the page itself, I cannot get an accurate hit count. The RSS feed doesn’t have the ability to be counted on blogspot.
- Other sites aggregate blog entries. I think it is nicer when there is just a teaser there, with a link to the real page.
So, another poll! For those of you using RSS new aggregators, would you prefer it if I pumped out the entire page in the feed, or just a teaser?
And yes, everyone was right — it was Las Vegas in answer to the “Where in the World”. My favorite followup was this one. Got it down to the very hotel I was in first. Very nice!
