Wednesday marked quite a milestone for this blog – the number of subscribers to my RSS feed passed the 1,000 mark for the first time.
Over the past few months, I’ve been paying close attention to the FeedBurner stats as subscriber numbers have been showing a clear and consistent growth trend.
Subscriber numbers do fluctuate, though, as this graph for the past 30 days indicates:
I expect the number of subscribers to rise and fall (and, hopefully, rise again) as time goes on. I’ll be quite pleased if the growth trend continues.
Still, it’s great to pass that milestone number, transient though it may well be. Thanks to the 1,016 of you (I’m the subscriber that bumps the number up by one) who have subscribed, with many of you staying subscribed.
[…] Neville’s celebrating reaching a milestone in his RSS subscriber numbers – he’s hit the big 1000 subscribers for the first time. […]
Congratulations Neville. Thanks for all of the insights.
Congrats! I wish I could tell you we had a plaque we engrave for our 1k members. Sadly, a congratulatory comment will have to do for the time being.
Keep up the great work,
VP, Publisher Services
Bravo Neville ! Surely they’ll continue to rise… See you in Ghent for the Euroblog 2007 Symposium.
Congrats. That an important milestone. I am still a big fan and have been from arounf episode 50.
My site above is my new Word Press one. Still under developement but will move my Typepad domain over soon. What do you think of it?
A heads up: Just read this article at Hittail.
Why SEO is really a subset of PR.
Good food for thought.
Keep up the great reporting.
Neville; Impressive, and not all that unexpected. It’s fun to know there are actually people reading out there.
Thanks, everyone, I really appreciate your comments.
Michael, nice work with your new WordPress blog design. Using Feedburner too, I see!
Impressive, but not surprising Neville!.
According to the metrics, you’re 33% cooler than me :)
Heh! I was thinking that this might be literally so at the moment, Ted, with the freezing temps here in NYC.
However you’re near this neck of the woods, too, so perhaps not ;)
Congrats on breaking 1,0000, Neville! You deliver great content. That’s why I subscribe — along with all those other smart people!
Weather is about the same here in New Hampshire Neville, but last year at this time I was in Central Siberia – minus 48 when I landed and then it got cold :)
