Someone wrote me recently asking me to change my feed setting so that you can read the full posts in a reader. They’re right – it’s bad for me to care about my numbers so much as to inconvenience you. And I don’t really care about them all that much. So I changed the setting. Yay!

But then, writing and rewriting the last post, I just remembered one other reason to make you come to the site to read the posts. I am a post-now, edit-a-few-minute-later sort of blogger. I do it all the time, and perhaps I could change and perfect the things before hitting the button, but I sort of doubt it. (I also have a nasty but healthy habit of posting then deleting, especially on weekends, which you can’t do if 3/4s of your readership has the full post, permanently in their google reader). So…. rather than have all of you read mangled, incomplete, incoherent versions of the posts, I’ve restored the rss settings. I really do apologize for the inconvenience….

  1. Certainly it makes sense from a post-structuralist point of view, and also because of the latent immaterial labour inherent in […]

  2. Ha!

    I don’t believe in the concept of immaterial labor. I mean, it happens, but it’s not all that significant, from the wide perspective.

  3. Just reading one of your full posts this morning in my google reader and happily realized you’d changed the settings. ah well, at least this way we read your comments (and David’s above was worth the click-through).

    interestingly, right now google reader has the shortened version of yesterday’s post… so i do think it picks up changes when you rewrite your posts.

    on the other hand, i have seen it keep posts you’ve thought better of and then removed (at least the beginnings of them), so if your intent is to rewrite history occasionally, you’re better off with the […] i suppose.

    • Ugh, sorry David. Maybe I’ll practice writing proper, fully-editted posts for awhile and then go back. I do think it is, in the end, better to full post the rss.
