Hi there!

Less people might read your blog in the HTML, but I'm not sure why that concerns you. Providing it in RSS saves bandwidth (they don't download the RSS and the HTML) and makes people more likely to read your posts (since it's right in front of them rather than a click-thru and a download away).

Hey Aaron! I took the description out for two reasons: it uses lots of bandwidth and I fear it means no one will ever actually open my blog if they just read it via RSS. But I don't use RSS a lot - is that a reasonable concern?

Can you add back an RSS version with the descriptions? It's much more convenient to read weblog entries in $RSSREADER.
