I Hate Blogger
So on another post of mine two Thomas Hawk readers are complaining about only getting partial feeds in their RSS readers for my blog. But if you look at the screen shot above you will see that I’ve got my account at Blogger configured to provide full feeds, not partial feeds.
This is not the first time this has happened to me. I’ve had readers complain in the past about partial feeds and yet I’ve never told Blogger to publish anything but full feeds.
What’s worse though is that Blogger’s service is just crap. It was kind of getting better for a while but the past few weeks or so it’s just been awful. It’s been difficult to publish stuff (it acts like it’s publishing but just always says 0% uploaded) and although I think it might be fixed today for the past few weeks their auto password / blogger ID thing has not been working.
But here’s a place where technology sucks. I did try to transfer my blog to WordPress once but I couldn’t figure out how to do it. And then I’ve been told by others (perhaps erroneously but I’m not sure since I couldn’t figure it out) that it’s difficult to transfer both your blog and all of your existing comments over to WordPress.
So I guess I’m stuck with crappy Blogger for the time being still. What I really want is to have my blog at thomashawk.com on WordPress or Moveable Type and then have a nice photoblog at thomashawk.com/photoblog. Someday I’ll get this all set up.
In the meantime if you are getting partial feeds to my blog, sorry about that. I wish you were getting full feeds, it’s nothing intentional on my part.
