Full Feeds For BBC Blogs
Small steps. Small steps.
Simon Dickson made this plea back in April when we upgraded the blog platform. Nick Reynolds then pointed me to Tony Kennick's blog post yesterday. An open letter no less, asking us very kindly to do the same.
I find full content feeds much more useful especially when catching up with feeds on other devices on the move. Mobile browsing has vastly improved and where I am required to click through in most cases I can do so to read the whole content, but I would rather remain within my feed aggregating application.
Well, quite. So we did. From this afternoon, all of the BBC's blog feeds are now full-fat, as you can see above from the lovely Google Reader screengrab of Mark Mardell's blog post from this afternoon on the Irish Lisbon Treaty vote.
Sorry that it's taken so long.
