Fri, 27 Apr 2007 10:50:35 +0000[...] There may also be some numbers that are over- or under-reported. I had more concern about this when I first saw the large jump in subscriber numbers, but since then I’ve become more comfortable with the [...]

Mon, 26 Feb 2007 12:27:28 +0000Hi Donna, thanks for your kind words. I'm glad that button is drawing in some readers and even more happy that you're finding my blog useful. I've been checking out your blog and finding some interesting information there, too. Thanks for visiting and taking time to comment!
Sat, 24 Feb 2007 16:12:54 +0000Ray, I just wanted to let you know that the Google Toolbar button was the way that I initially located your site. I'm new to blogging and I am following several sites, as well as creating my own as part of a project in a Research and Technology class that I am attending. I located your site through the toolbar, but, of course, stayed for the content! Keep up the quality work! Donna
Sat, 24 Feb 2007 12:58:24 +0000Wendy, I have to say I'm really impressed by FeedBurner's products and services and also now their staff. Oh, and the number is 752 today! It'll be cool if it does prove to be lasting. I keep thinking about Jean's comment about the Google Toolbar button. I saw this new feature listed on Google's site several months ago and made up a favicon button for the toolbar following their instructions and submitted it to their gallery. I can only assume that a number of visitors have found FreshBlogger that way...
Fri, 23 Feb 2007 18:58:48 +0000Ray, the FeedBurner team is the s*it. I "sneeze" for them every chance I get! I can't wait to see how your numbers change over the next week or so. I'll be taking a few more lessons from you, my friend! ;)
Fri, 23 Feb 2007 16:51:17 +0000Wendy and Adnan: Haha! Just kidding. You guys are big time compared to a little fish like me. And Wendy, you are so right about FeedBurner being on top of it! Jake, thanks for stopping by and giving the link. I've seen a bit of fluctuation, but never by this much. I'm not too worried about the big number right now, but I thought it would be best to post about it so that my visitors won't think I'm trying to pull a fast one somehow. I know there was a recent controversy about something like this that caused some bloggers to lose credibility. I'm confident you guys have things well in hand and if the numbers turn out to be accurate, then I'm happy. Thanks again for visiting and helping to clear things up a bit.
Fri, 23 Feb 2007 16:43:04 +0000Hi Jean, that makes sense. It has to have something to do with it. As far as pagerank goes, it's strange that it's not showing up sometimes. I still see PR of 0 from home, but I've verified that freshblogger.com is actually PR 5 (www.freshblogger.com is PR 3) and it shows up like that for me at other computers (like, at work). Thanks for commenting!
Fri, 23 Feb 2007 15:36:06 +0000Hey Ray, It's understandable that you're interested in the big jump that your feed subscribership made. This things happen from time to time. We've written about it here: http://blogs.feedburner.com/feedburner/archives/2007/02/the_numbers_they_go_down_they.php Things should straighten themselves out. Please feel free to give me a shout if you have further questions. Thanks! Jake Parrillo Publisher Services Team FeedBurner
