I’ve changed my default RSS feed to grab the entire entry, rather than an excerpt. I find that the more I read blogs through my aggregators (NetNewsWire on my Mac, News Gator on my PC), the more I like to be able to see the entire entry, rather than just a summary or first X number of words.

Anyone who would prefer the extracts should redirect their aggregators to

For anyone who wants to try this at home: I used the RSS feed template from Glimpse of a grrl, and tima’s mt-entrybodymore plugin. It worked like a charm– and this is more than faint praise, given the trouble I’ve had with some other attempts to liven up the back end of my blog.
