But I will say that blogs I don’t comment on, I never click through truncated feeds.

Not always such a smartphone!

Just wanted to end by encouraging you to go for it.

If someone can’t appreciate your reasoning then I’m thinking ‘Oh well’ or maybe even ‘buh bye’ fits!

This blogging business is hard work even if a labor of love; making a decision to change to protect your content, increase engagement and yes…actually expect compensation for your efforts is nothing but reasonable. My only suggestion? Setup your feed to include your main photo; a picture really does more to effect engagement.

If I do end up using the partial feed, then I will definitely start each post with a really alluring lead-in (perhaps a quick 1 liner about the recipe?). As for titles, that’s challenging since recipe names have to be my titles for index purposes. Do you think I need more interesting recipe names?

It’s a really hard decision for me, because I want to balance what I need from a business perspective with what my readers like you want. I really appreciate your response!

For feedback purposes, I can say that I subscribe to a large number of food blogs via RSS feeds. When there are too many at one time, I am far more likely to skip over the partial feeds. If you do go this route, I would encourage you to use an enticing title and to make sure that the few lines that do get posted in the RSS feed give a good and inviting indication of what is in the full bog post.
