Almost all the blogs I read have RSS and that’s why I read them. It’s easy, and it saves me time. It would be crazy to open more than 200 blogs everyday and check all the last posts, rolling down the page… Too complicated. That’s why I just go to my Bloglines account and read the last updates.
The truth is: I don’t read all the text of all the feeds I have there. My focus goes to the title of the post and images. If I like them, I read the whole post. I don’t think it’s fair that some blogs don’t provide the complete post in RSS, or most of it. Do they want more visits? Ok, but surely they are losing some readers. I love visits, but I’m also very glad to have my feed readers, because I’m one of them.
I’m writing this because I discovered that some of you aren’t happy, since you don’t have images. And since this is basically a blog of images what am I doing? Well, I didn’t plan these problems, it just happened. I had to ask to the webmaster block the use of images from my blog in other sites, because there were some hotlinkers using the images from this blog and I pay for the bandwidth, so I thought that wasn’t very nice. Not all sites are blocked, some feed reader sites and some others are allowed to show images directly.
However, I don’t know all the feed readers available and some you are still without images. So, if you read the RSS feeds from this blog and you can’t see the images, please post a comment in this post or send me an email ( bibisbox [at] gmail [dot] com) telling me which feed aggregator / reader do you use, to allow it to show the image. Thanks for your attention.
