10,000 Subscribers

When I looked at our Feedburner chicklet this morning I noticed what must have been a joke: 9999.

What are the odds of that happening? I jokingly posted to Twitter that someone at Feedburner must have been messing with me and David Petherick of Digital Biographer sent me a direct message on Twitter that he had just subscribed to put it over the edge at 10,000. Thanks David!

BTW, if you’re interested in social networking/social media check out his site. Lots of good info there.

Hopefully what Jolina, Mike and I are posting from SES and Pubcon warrants continued growth of our subscriber numbers. The numbers reported by Feedburner for a variety of reasons fluctuate up and down, so tomorrow we could be back at 9500. Or it could be 10,200. 🙂

  1. 10,000 (or 9,999) is a big milestone. 🙂

  2. Congrats, guys. I was in there at number 9990’ish something. It is a great site and I really enjoy browsing it.

  3. Oho! I spotted a change in today’s referral patterns on my blog stats, and this is where it’s coming from. I’m using http://statcounter.com just for your reference – great service, excellent value.

    Thanks for the link Lee, much appreciated. 😉

  5. Congratulations on the high FeedBurner subscriptions. I couldn’t help but notice you are using –

    n your site. I’m seeing this appear everywhere, where web masters use their FeedBurner RSS as their alternate syndication instead of their page RSS. Is there benefit to having all of your subscribers on the FeedBurner RSS as opposed to your wbesite RSS?
