Money Roundup: Partial RSS Feeds Edition

by Michael on May 4, 2013 · 2 comments

I’ve never fully understood why some bloggers insist on offering partial RSS feeds. Actually, I do understand. It’s for much the seem reason that websites paginate their content. The goal is to inflate pageviews in hopes of increasing profitability.

So I guess what I’m really saying is that I don’t understand why writers think it’s a good idea to inconvenience their most important asset — their readers. To me, this is incredibly short-sighted. But to each their own.

Anyway, if you follow any sites that offer a partial RSS feed, then you might be interested in FullTextRSSFeed. Simply paste in the feed address, click a button, and… BAM! You’re presented with a link to a full-text version of the feed.

I have no affiliation with this site, I’m just a fan. I hope that you guys find this useful. And don’t worry, I’m not planning on switching to partial RSS feeds.

Administrative note

As an aside, if you’re an e-mail subscriber, you may have noticed that I’ve added an option to switch to weekly summaries instead of daily, full-text updates. There’s now a link at the top and bottom of every message that goes out.

Please note that I have no intention of discontinuing the daily, full-text updates. But if you’re feeling overwhelmed by e-mail, you might want to switch to the weekly summaries. Click this link for details. And yes, you can switch back at anytime.

Fair warning… The weekly summaries include excerpts from, and links to, all articles published in the preceding seven days. In this case, the use of excerpts instead of full articles is a necessary evil to keep the messages from getting ridiculously long.

And… We’re back…

With that said, here are some articles that caught my eye this past week:

The extra links are courtesy of our rainy weather… That’s it. Hope you’re having a great weekend.
