I've set the new blog feed to "full," which means that you can see the entire entries right in your Flist (if you add melissarambles to it). I've kept it at "short" in the past because of the possibility of someone lifting my entries out and using them as their own, but there's a chance that won't happen. As long as that's the case, I'll leave it at full.

I hope everyone who has this LJ on their Flist has checked out the new blog! I've not been able to keep this one up-to-date because of the way I'm posting on Blogger. If you add the feed (link above) to your Friend's List, full entries should start showing up soon after they're posted.

In the meantime, I'm trying to get many of my friends' LJs into my Bloglines. I've not been entirely successful, because they don't all have feeds. I need to keep the number of personal sites I hit during the day to a minimum, and my LJ reading has suffered. I'm trying to catch up! (I've been on Ravelry only a handful of times in the last month.)

*tiles head, looks confused*
People steal other people blogs? But WHY!?!

It sounds stupid, doesn't it? But it definitely happens. From what I've seen, there are at least three reasons: 1) clueless bints that think copying and pasting other people's blogs = blogging; 2) pathetic bints who want to be other people (they usually focus on just one persons' blog); 3) Folks (mostly overseas) that are trying to build advertising revenue. They steal feeds and hope keyword searches will bring people to their pages, resulting in $ from advertisers.

I've seen all 3 discussed on other forums. Never had it happen to me, and don't expect it to, but some of the people who had it happen were regular people like me (not "famous bloggers"). Setting your feed to "short" is one way to counteract it.

My LJ posts are still set to short, because LJ's feed doesn't update. If you've ever accidentally made a post public that you meant to make friends-only, that's why.
