Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Question for Feed Reader Users
Did you have to change anything when I changed my template? Just wondering how many folks I've managed to lose with the switch.

Half the fun of writing a blog--as opposed to a journal you keep in your top dresser drawer--is sharing your thoughts with others. Having people click over to your site is one way you can know others are reading it. Plus, people are more likely to comment if they're already at your site.

I dont' have time to go clicking around everywhere. If all I get in the rss reader is the first two and a half sentences, they had better be a GOOD two and a half sentences and really draw me in - or I don't read it. Plain and simple. However, if the rss feed is full-text, the chance that I read your blog post goes up 100% - and the chance that I would click through to comment goes up too.
The whole argument that partial posts get people to read stuff is kind of bogus. I read more stuff if it is full-post, and I think a lot of RSSers would agree.
