I’ve hit 800 subscribers!
Actually, I hit 808 subscribers. This was the count from yesterday as Feedburner shows the results one day later. This means about 808 readers requested my feed or received my emails yesterday.
Why should you subscribe?
If you subscribe to my RSS feed or email updates, you get my amazing humor and wit delivered right to your favorite feed reader (like Google Reader) or email inbox. You never even need to click through to my site! (unless you want to comment or participate in a reader poll of course). As a note, the emails are only sent once daily, and only if I updated something within the last 24 hours. All the posts are rolled up into a single email for your reading please.
Just think, you could read Clever Dude on your laptop or phone while sitting on the toilet! COOL!
So what are you waiting for? Subscribe already!
Congratulations on this awesome milestone. Your blog is definitely worth subscribing to.
You want people to read your blog on the toilet. Weird.

Plonkee, where do you think I write my articles?
Congrats Clever Dude. I think the journey to 1,000 will go by more quickly than 500 to 800. These things tend to build.
I’m happy I finally hit 50. 🙂 Baby steps…
I just hit 8 and I’m excited. Imagine when I get 80, or 800…
haha! You lost subscribers after this post! Ironic…
Clever Dude says
Tyler, I knew it would happen. There’s a reason. I didn’t necessarily lose subscribers. I go up and down 50 or more subscribers in a day, especially on weekends.
The reason it jumps up and down is because Feedburner collects subscriber information based on who downloaded the feed that day. They don’t actually know who has added it as a subscription in their reader unless they download it. If they didn’t download it for a day, Feedburner assumes they unsubscribed, which is usually wrong of course.
You can read more about Feedburner reported numbers here:
I can’t stand the yo-yo’ing of FeedBurner stats. Some days I feel like I’m really doing well and others I feel like I’m talking to myself.
The person who can come up with a solution to this could probably make mega-money.
Congrats! I’m at a little over 300 and wish I had more! 🙂
Keep up the good work but maybe you want to rethink where you write your articles 😀
