A challenge to increase your number of blog subscribers via FeedBurner in the hope of getting a free pint in Dublin in March has brought me to spend a while trawling through FeedBurner and really looking at the stats that they provide. The one thing I was happy to see was the overall continual increase in subscribers to this blog – my thanks to those of you who read it and pass comment now and again – as detailed in the chart below. There’s actually a lot you can garner from FeedBurner – daily, weekly, monthly, annual stats, average subscribers, most popular article via RSS, where the clicks are going, where the clicks are coming from etc. Here’s a gander at the increase…
The subscriber milestone challenge has now brought in Conor O’Neill, Robin Blandford, James Corbett, Aidan Finn and Tom Raftery. With round one out of the way thanks to a stealth bomb attack (actually I’ve no idea what brought about an increase in readership) by myself, round two seems to be open and its looking at the biggest percentage increase in subscribers to your feed (via FeedBurner) between now and the Blog Awards.
Paul is going for a yet-to-be-unveiled secret weapon and if you’re up for it (winner gets a pint at the awards) it could be a laugh. Nice way to increase blogger interaction and inject a little fun into the day.
I mean, its not the winning that counts….. 😉
Update…. How could I forget about Paul!
