This has happened a few times to me. I find a blog I enjoy, and I read it for some time. Maybe a year or more. Then, one day, the author of the blog stops posting full-article feeds. What do you do?
In my case, I have always stopped reading. There’s just too much content out there to go following every link. In order to follow a link, I need to be searching for something, and also be under the belief that the link will help me. When browsing through the day’s news, I am not searching for anything specific. So naturally, I won’t click the link.
This happened to me with some zdnet blogs a while ago (actually, I think they never published a full feed?), and this month it happened with Kawasaki’s blog. I sent a nice email to Guy – but we’ll see if he responds; I’m sure he gets a lot of junk.
What do you do? I bet few people follow the clicks.
