Where are ?



I seem to have been living under a cabbage leaf during these last few months!  In Google Reader, why are all the blog photos no longer seen?  Is there a trick to turn somethng back "on" so I don't have to click on each person's blog to see the photos?  Or do I have to subscribe to a higher level of Google Reader or ????

It could be a function of the bloggers settings. I know I have a switch in WordPress to allow me to send just the first bit of a post or the whole post. If it's just bit, the pictures don't show up in the various readers.

A lot of bloggers seem to have turned on the truncated feature of their blog. I DO know that there is a feature in blogger settings that will not show the photo and one needs to actually go to the blog.

Lots of times I will not go to the blog if it is truncated in Google Reader.

Hi Elaine... like Paula said it could be a blogger who truncates, or, it could be your settings. Go to your settings page and see if you have allowed pics, etc.. HTHs.

I'm still getting pictures for most of my blogs in Google Reader. Some people, like Bonnie Hunter, use the truncated feature to ensure people actually have to visit their site to read. It must have something to do with marketing and making sure their visit stats stay high :)

I'm not sure if you read mine, but I may have set mine to truncate because someone complained that Google was so "grabby".

Another blog I read learned that her whole posts were being stolen and posted on someone else's blog in their entirety. She learned that truncating was the best way to protect her posts. More than a few if the blogs I follow make their living -or at least cover the costs of their site- by advertising. If I really enjoy the blog, I don't mind clicking over to read the whole post. It's a small thing I can do to ensure that they can afford to continue providing my entertainment.

I never heard of truncating, so I should look into it. I had noticed that Bonnie Hunter's blog never showed the pictures, so I had to click over to the actual page. There were a few others, but for the most part, they did show the pictures. I better check my settings.
