50! Why I like Bloglines
By user12618941 on Apr 27, 2005
One feature I especially like is that bloglines allows you to see how many other bloglines users have subscribed to a particular blog. This of course means that you can watch the stats on your own blog as well. So today I reached fifty bloglines users who are reading my blog; that makes me able to guess that my real readership must be quite a bit higher than that. While I'm dwarfed by some of our blogging giants like Bryan (132) and Eric (114), I'm feeling good about fifty.
An additional cool feature is that a bloglines user can choose to share his or her subscriptions with the world; this means that I even know who some of my 50 subscribers are (surely there is some sort of neat social networking/visualization project to be done here!). So, if you're a bloglines subscriber-- share your subscriptions! To do so, visit the "Account" link, go to "Account Settings" and choose "Yes, Publish my Blog/Blogroll."
