BUT, starting tomorrow, I will be shortening my RSS feed, so if you read through a feed, you will get the beginning off the post (the first 400 words) but will have to come check out the blog for the full post. Hopefully I can give you enough description in those first 400 words that you will know if the post is something you want to read more about. 400 is a lot of words - I think we'll be good to go.
And speaking of ways to read blogs, I can't say enough about the "NEXT" button - - I've had mine for a couple of years and can't imagine reading blogs without it! Here's my navigation bar (obviously I like having shortcut buttons!) - my NEXT button is there on the very right:
I hit it and it takes me to a blog that has recently posted - it takes me TO that blog. I love reading blogs on their blog, but I can't image trying to click through a bunch to see who's updated. This is the ultimate way to read blogs.
I talked all about my love of the NEXT button and how to get instructions to install it on this post back from a couple of years ago: NEXT BUTTON LOVE.
Anyways, long story short - sorry about the shortened RSS feeds - - I think this was the best solution to the problem. I'm glad I found a way to only shorten the feed and not have to truncate all of my posts, but I know it can still be a hassle for readers. I hope you'll still continue to read and support Sugar Bee Crafts - you are all AWESOME! (unless you're one of those blog scrappers - then please, dump me from your feed!!)
