So I was reviewing my feed stats the other day, and for the most part they were growing quite nicely – then all of a sudden it started to reverse. Hmmm… odd, the only thing that I had done differently was post this article Would You Value The Message More If My Name Were Joe?
Naaaaah, it couldn’t be. Could it?
I truly understand that sites are very dynamic. In fact, if you read John Chows’ blog he ran a rather “nasty” April Fools gag on the 1st of April (I actually didn’t mind…) and had many people say that they would unsubscribe from his RSS feed and not visit his site any longer. Instead, the number of RSS subscribers to his feed went up to just over 23,000 RSS Subscribers.
So am I worried if one post drove a few subscribers away? Nope… just thought I’d share some information with you.
