Foodie Question of the Day
Well… Its more foodie-related.

What do you prefer? Summary or full feed for readers?
I have to admit I am not a summary fan b/c I am a lazy blogger and to be blunt, I am all about instant gratification (my infomercial fetish makes sense now right? HAHA) so I don’t wanna click over to your blog to get the full post. I want to read it now… in my google reader. ::stomping feet::
But I love blogging and if I can make a little money on something I love, all the better right?
I’ve been a foodbuzz publisher for a few months now. Foodbuzz pays per 1000 views (at least thats how my contract is set up) but it doesn’t count toward your views if readers “view” your blog via a reader. Heck I didn’t know that! Since I am a science nerd, I started formulating an experiment. I was thinking I’d change my blog to summary for a month and see if there is a significant monetary difference. If not then I’d switch back to full read b/c thats what I prefer.
After I shared my hypothesis with fellow foodie, Nikki, she immediately explained that she’s not a fan of summary feeds for the same reasons as me and she thinks you actually lose readers when you do that.
Well that sucks. The last thing I want to do is lose readership. One of the biggest reasons I love blogging is interacting with readers. I’ve met some amazing people that way. I love my readers.
So what do you think? Do you agree with Nikki?
Would a summary feed make you delete someone from your reader? why or why not?
