Conflicted, Conflicted....

On one hand, I hate, loathe, despise blogs that don't put 100% of the content in the feed.

I delete them from my readers all the time.... to make me click the blog had better be stellar.

On the other hand, because this is offered in a feed, google analytics keeps telling me no one reads it. I know that's not true, because I get comments, but it's hard to keep writing sometimes when it feels like there's not a lot of point.....

If I made you click, I would know you read it. But I would be loosing people like myself.

I'm the same way. I don't want to click to read a blog. That's the whole point of having the feed!

Okay, wait, can't you tell who's subscribed to your blog through feeds? Or is this like the TV ratings and those of us who TiVo'd "Journeyman" (because I had a night class, NOT because I was sleeping or anything!) and so no one seems to be able to keep track of a bunch of electronic data (not blaming you AT ALL -- just what's so analytic about them if they can't track a subscription?) Because I AM reading. But I'm also busy, and I like being able to tell if you have a new post just by seeing the big bold "1" in parentheses next to your name on my feed.
Wow, see, now I bet you're sorry I took the time to comment. I'm rambling again :/

We read, I promise! I hate having to click too, and its a good way to make me not want to read a post.
