Full Feed Policy

I like many others of having a policy of only subscribing to RSS feeds if they are the full feed. If the feed is partial it gets removed from my read list. I also have a sort policy that if a site is not generally updated daily I put them in a secondary list which I review every other day. I have also developed a podcaster policy as well, I listen to all shows I am subscribed to but only visit the site if they have have content beyond their shows. Their are some great podcast out their but their sites and their content is pretty bad.

I don’t see why people go to the trouble of having a great podcast and yet don’t take a couple of hours and make some unique templates or hire someone to make them a nice site design. I would think also that if a podcaster has a good following of listeners it would only make sense that they would follow content on their websites as well yet many podcasters put up absolutely horrendous show notes. It only takes me a couple of times listening to a show and then not getting any show notes before I unsubscribe. I have sent notes to podcasters explaining this point but many seem to think they are above show notes.

In a way the articles I talk about in the podcast are the same ones I would normally right about and I would never write about a story and not link to it for me the logic does not make sense.
