Limited RSS Feeds Are Selfish

I don’t subscribe to any RSS feeds that are not “full content” feeds.

If you don’t enable me to consume your content in Google Reader over my morning coffee, I won’t read you.

Limited RSS feeds are selfish. Forcing someone to click through to your website to see extra content is “old school” thinking.

There’s nothing wrong in asking for an email address before sharing more detailed content like an eBook or a training course.

But anything less than full content in your RSS feed is inappropriate in the modern world.

Just like sites that don’t let me save long articles to Pocket, Readability or Instapaper; blogs that don’t have full RSS feeds are no longer on my reading list.

If you run a blog, make sure your RSS feeds include your full content!

Do you think bloggers should only use full content RSS feeds? You canĀ get free updates about my writing and the inside line on eBooks and other digital content I’m working on. I’d love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment!
