RSS FEEDS

If you read my blog through an RSS Feed, please e-mail me for a password.  Apparently my site is being scraped and copied and I think this might be the only way for me to slow it down.

I would really love it if I can shut down my RSS feed all together, but it seems like many of you readers use it.  I'm trying to get an accurate count of how many people actually use the feed.  If you subscribe, please leave me a message in the comments so I can track.

Facebook and Twitter will all be the same and access to my site is the same as well.  Please follow me on either one because that is the best way to stay up to date with what is going on.

Thanks for being patient while I try to protect my content and figure this shit out.

Send me an e-mail at [email protected] and let me know which reader you use and I'll give you the password.

Read via RSS in Google Reader. Unfortunately disabling RSS won't help you much, anything you put on a public webpage can be trivially copied/scraped. It is one of the assignments most students get in intro CS classes.

Ditto, I read the blog with Google Reader. I'm not even sure what the password is for - I didn't realize it was possible to password protect an RSS feed?

I follow your RSS, but I'll be switching to Twitter now, sorry this is happening to you =/

Justin said...

I read your blog in Google Reader as well (RSS feed). You might try reaching out to Kristi from www.addicted2decorating.com. She recently had similar issues and she can probably point you at some ideas for dealing with it.

I know one of the things she did was change the setting for the RSS feed so that it only shows a partial post (first paragraph or so). It's annoying for those of us who use RSS readers, but better than turning it off period. Not sure if Blogger supports that, though.

Cassie and Lou said...

WOW, appears Google Reader is popular. That's what i use to follow your blog also.

I know you said to email you, but I figured after all these comments, you didn't want another email. :)

Google reader and outlook for me as well as an RSS Feed.

What are my other options to get updated on blog posts other than Facebook? Maybe I'm doing it wrong!

Another Google Reader user. I read your posts and share them out to my FB & twitter accounts often. And I'm begging you to find a fix that doesn't include partial post feeds if at all possible. I use my phone to do most of my blog reading, and clicking through to read an entire post is cumbersome and time consuming and I likely won't do it. I've sadly dropped every feed I read that used partial posts.

Ms. Pants said...

Emailed as well, but my mother and I both use the RSS on Google Reader. :-)

I use the RSS feed.

Jennifer Hansen said...

I have no idea what an RSS feed is but I follow you by logging into my blogspot account and I guess that uses Google Reader... maybe... I don't know. This is why I try to avoid technology when ever I can.

Ashley said...

Google Reader! But I usually click over to your actual site anyway so truncated feeds wouldn't bother me.

Susan said...

I have your blog come to my email...considering I am technology ignorant, does that mean RSS...if so I'm assuming Google!

KellyW said...

I use your RSS feed on my Google homepage.

Monica said...

I follow via email. How did you find out your content was being scraped? I keep hearing about this issue from other bloggers, and I guess I need to change my set up this weekend.

MeganAndMiles said...

Google reader here too. Super lame someone's stealing your stuff

Rebeccah said...

Sooooo exactly HOW ignorant would it sound for someone who has been blogging for oh, say, six years or so, to have no idea what you are talking about? Blogger asked me who I want to get updates from and so that's what happens. I don't even know what RSS feed means.

Erin G said...

I read through google reader. Keep me in the loop when/if you make rss changes!!

vudean said...

I follow your blog's RSS feed through Outlook. thanks!

Lissa said...

I use google reader. Another blog I read just started doing truncated RSS feeds, and she said it was also due to security of her posts. Maybe something to look into?
