Reader statistics, courtesy of wordpress.com, suggest most of my readers consume this blog via RSS feeds, with Google (Google Reader and Google homepage) being the most popular viewer.
In an effort to be more efficient in my blog reading, I have also started using Google Reader and first impressions are very positive. But there is one major drawback that really stands out: RSS feeds do not directly include comments.
Because my journey has been guided by reader comments – for example, see the latest insightful comments from Tyro Trader on ‘Conditioning optimal trading behaviour III’ – I recommend RSS reader’s pop in once a week or so and check the ‘recent comments’ section for updates. I only get a handful of comments each week, but some of these are gold.
