Yeah, it feels like backwards RSS... Instead of pulling content from site readers are pushing suggestions to site. Only RSS became somewhat popular at last - took it years. So it pretty much promotes itself. And with skribit I am having trouble to have readers use it. :(

Skribit looks interesting...I didn't know about it before! I think it's a clever idea to share suggestions about possible blog posts!

Ben, you have your feeds in comments block which is nearby so I don't think effect is going to be as prominent. :) Still worth a try - this taught me to think that there is no space not deserving feed link on a page. btw what's your thoughts on skribit? :)

Wow, 5 times is such a big increase! I will consider doing the same thing on SEO Horror and see what happens. Thanks for that experiment Rarst!

>I’d prefer you’d keep the Skribit link :p. Obviously. :) I think widget could perform better than link, but you remember my opinion on your widget - it's faaat. :) Waiting for v2. >I saw your suggestion about the FeedFlare on our GetSatisfaction page, but haven’t had a chance to respond. I’d like to work with you and see if we can make it more effective. I made simple flare for myself and included it in my feeds, here is url for its code https://www.rarst.net/skribit.xml Feel free to mail me if you need opinions or whatever but I am not much of flare coder - only read feedburner docs a bit and used simple example from it. And I could really use a good ideas on how to make people suggest... You guys should brainstorm it or something. :)

Rarst, I'd prefer you'd keep the Skribit link :p. I saw your suggestion about the FeedFlare on our GetSatisfaction page, but haven't had a chance to respond. I'd like to work with you and see if we can make it more effective. Calvin
