There has been a long debate among bloggers whether to offer full RSS feed or just the excerpt. Some decides to provide full RSS in order to provide more value to their subscribers, while some others provides only partial RSS as it would convert into more pageviews. If your favorite blog decides to offer just partial RSS, fret not, there’s a solution to that.
