If I showed you the subscription numbers for this blog, you would break into open laughter. Hint: there are 20 people subscribed via Google Reader, and I know I’m one of them.
For 3 years of blogging, I should be somewhere around the 200 subscription mark by now, and instead I’m way, way less than a 100.
So if you wish, please do subscribe (given what I get paid for this, I probably should find a way of making subscribing mandatory), and if you have friends that are looking for something new to read, try to persuade them to subscribe. There’s a “get Rethink delivered to e-mail” option in the FAQ’s for those who don’t use feed readers.
Btw: an entry from a while ago, arguing that using a feed reader puts those of us who are bloggers on a more level playing field with mainstream media – An Introduction to Really Simple Syndication
