For My E-Mail Subscribers

If you are a subscriber of my blog, you received what is called a "Short Feed" via e-mail today. I'm experimenting with the concept in order to send people to my blog website so that I can get an idea of my actual readership numbers. I know that sounds very organized and self-promotional, but just put it down to the whole body-snatching, zombie thing taking over my life (I swear, it's the YOGA --it's changing my life!) and go about your day. I was kind of hoping there would be some verbiage to tell you to click on the title to go to the blog and read the rest of my scintillating prose but alas, it was not so. Here's a link if you missed it: On the Couch Again...(Sing It With Me, Y'all)

Also, my foot is feeling great now, so thanks for your words of support. Maybe I don't even need this dang foot--I just need YOU!

Thanks!

(Also otherworldly is this rash of exclamation points. Yoga is a powerful,  powerful thing.)

Your answer is that it is a short feed, but I saw nowhere that said "click to read more!" Although I figured it out pretty quick, because it broke off in the middle of the sentence!

Ditto - On Google Reader it just ends mid-sentence.

Me too - it ended mid-sentence (and I thought: 'Barb is testing something' and deleted the email and moved on.)

I find, when I'm reading in my reader, that unless something grabs me right away - either the title or the first couple of sentences - I seldom bother to click through.

That's why I switched back to a full feed for mine - I know that sometimes it takes me a little while to get to the point.

"I'll have what she's having." I think I need to get me some yoga. Glad you are doing better! x

Short feeds are pretty standard. And right on--you want your stats. If someone wants to date your blog, they should come right up to the front porch and ring your bell. No fair sitting out in the car honking.

I think you may want to get a facebook button to your blog. I just marked down the site, but I had to make this manually. Just my advice.
