Pleased to see that my step last week to fix my RSS feed so it shows my words first, not what I’m reacting to, actually has the hoped for effect.

My feed goes to my micro.blog account, and there my own words are shown now first too. A post in this new form yesterday created a nice conversation involving 4 others on micro.blog. That would not have happened had my post started and ended with “Read: some url”.

  1. @ton It still seems strange in my head to see reaction to something that is only seen later, but I agree that for syndication purposes (especially with character limits/truncation), it makes a lot of sense to do it this way

  2. @smokey you’re right, it might feel devoid of context, but I’m trying to learn to slightly change my writing to reflect that. E.g. have a first short sentence that serves as intro.
