I agree with Robert's scale of "RSS goodness". I very, very rarely stay subscribed to any feed that does not offer full-text content, so I can assure you that my weblog - and all Slashstar sites for that matter - will always provide full-text feeds. For me, the line between ad-free partial text feeds and ad-supported full-text feeds is a big one. That is, I much prefer ads to partial content. More importantly, keeping in the AdSense spirit, I haven't found them to be overly distracting on the sites currently testing them.
Then again, I also realize this site isn't Engadget. This is a personal weblog and my primary goal is writing about what I (and hopefully others) find interesting. I enjoy having this outlet and I greatly appreciate those who take the time to read what I've written.
If I can make a little money, it would certainly help rationalize the time I've invested in this space. It is definitely a secondary goal, and I don't want any efforts here to undermine the principal reasons for this site. I've added AdSense on the site already, but the majority of those reading this probably haven't even noticed - most readers, as one might expect, do so by way of the syndicated feeds.
So, an open question to my readers: how would you feel if I were to include AdSense ads in my RSS feeds? Would you unsubscribe? Would it change any expectations you have for my content?
