Through my referrals, I have found yet another of these aggregator sites, this one entitled Political Opinions. I am on there and that is all well and good, but I do have a slight problem: all of my posts are published in full.
Now, I have mixed feelings about this. Firstly, I am acknowledged so whoever is runnning this is not breaking the terms of my Creative Commons License. Furthermore, I have always been keen to spread my opinions about as much as possible (to the chagrin and sometimes outright boredom of those who know me in full drunken rant) and am happy that people outwith my normal audience might read my stuff.
However, is it selfish to desire that I should get the traffic? After all, the more traffic I have, the more paltry payments from Google Adsense I earn; higher stats would also open up other revenue streams. Besides, it indulges my vanity to gaze at my increasing traffic stats. So I am minded to stop my posts being published in full by this site.
However, that means publishing only a partial RSS feed. I know that I find it mildly irritating to click through to pages and I have always tried to make The Kitchen as easily accessible as possible. (This applies to commenting as well, which is why I always allow anonymous comments and ony put the Word Verification on when I started getting a large amount of spam.)
Given that, I really shouldn't mind in the first place, but I do. So, do I switch to partial RSS feed only, or not?
