  1. yup nice theme, i liked it, any ways sripathi tht is exactly the reason why he is not giving full post in the feeds … :))

  2. Hey.. please dude.. its too irritating.. this should be the most ridiculous thing you should be doing. I thought you blogged because you liked to, rather than to persuade people to see what you are writing.
    Look at Amit verma, today he blogs about how to get india uncut in gmail.. you on the other side are going in opposite direction.
    Tell you something, the consumer is always the king. Dont try to change the consumer behaviour. Its difficult. You might even lose the people who used to read your feeds. With the moderate blogroll that I read I have 400-500 feeds every day, as I scan through all of them, do you really expect me to open your website everyday?

  3. Hey Sripathi sorry for irritating you. Your point taken but not before I say these:
    1) I still blog because I like. And more I like if more people read, more comments I get and more people visit my site.
    2) Amit Verma is not benchmark. (Comments are disabled in India Uncut).It is all about personal preferences. I have seen many giving restricted feeds. I advocated feeding full and even in email, long back. See this. I have seen many people allowing restricted feeds. Email is a different story let me tell you. It is for those people who do not have internet access (which I once was). But if one can access web feed reader there is no reason why he should not visit my site(no ads, no pics, popups). Almost all news sites have restricted feeds (including your favorite rediff) and do you think people go away from them ?
    3)If you see arithmatic, it would be either no-loss-no-gain or only gain, if any, in terms of clicks.
    3)I believe it is not as much as convenience as much as willingness to visit a site. I remember you used to visit each blog before you were introduced to bloglines. And even now while digging you have to open a new tab.
    After all this hue, I see that there is only one subscriber to my feed in bloglines and that is ME!! Did I already loose one reader (you) or you forgot to update your feed to new address? Hey update it, I might go back on full feeds!

  4. hey.. let me clarify some points..
    AV is not a benchmark. I agree, I was rather talking about the tendency to make it more convinient to people.
    As the technology is improved and as new tools are found to make browsing easier, I think we should adapt to it.
    All news site and Digg give partial feeds. Thank God for that. Frankly, in the news feeds, most of the people will be uninterested in half the headlines. I read may be 20-30% of the articles that comes of news sites. So, its better they don't give complete feeds. Most of them usually read complete blogs though (i feel).
    A blogger whose blog cotents are put up on economic times, I believe should not worry too much about clicks
    Finally, note that point 4 comes after point 3.. and also, I have not yet updated my blogroll with these feeds. And BTW, if I and you are the only guys subscribing, then as the only real subscriber to your blog, you should help me ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. hey man..too much…I will enable full feeds. But promise me these things,
    1)you will visit the site atleast once in a week to see the template, theme and other design changes.
    2)you will comment as much as possible..if possible to every post of mine.
    And do update the feed…negimaki might not be available after few days.
    Thanks for reading my full posts ๐Ÿ˜€
    But now that I have enabled full posts I don't think you will be reading this comment also ๐Ÿ™

  6. ababaaaa, wht a fight, so finally Sripathi managed to convince u about full feeds, ofcourse on ur conditions though…!!!

    PS: well i wanted to tell u one thing, the small feature below the submit comment "Notify me of followup comments via e-mail" i just love this feature, cos everytime i used to comment something and wud forget to look back wht reply i got & this solved my problem :)) !!!

  7. Naveen, it is not a fight..! Healthy debate ๐Ÿ™‚
    Regarding "notify comment", it is a plugin. Hope it works fine, let me know.
