791RE: [webloggerusergroup] Is there a cultural barrier to syndication?
- Nov 7, 2001Mike:
I've taken awhile to think your question over and ultimately, I don't care
too much if someone visits my site once I get over the vanity aspect
involved. My main objective is always communication so where that happens is
irrelevant. Even on my "business" site (my business being photography) it
ultimately isn't important to me whether my site registers a "hit" -- only
that I get contacted about the possible job. The "hits" I consider important
there are the ones that keep me from having to meet with a client or send
out printed materials.

Subject: [webloggerusergroup] Is there a cultural barrier to
I think syndication technologies like RSS are cool, but I can't help but
think that a lot of the people who weblog today would rather have people
visit their actual site, than read their content somewhere else. For the
people who put a lot of work into their graphics and other stuff, reducing
their weblog to a mere text feed must seem like kind of a letdown. I
realize that syndication is meant to increase flow to your site, but I can
see how it might also reduce flow as well (maybe a good thing, if you are
concerned about bandwidth costs).
Does anybody else have an opinion on this?
