Mutually Assured Subscription
Just a quick note to my subscribers. If you are wondering why I have not subscribed to your blog, it’s not because I don’t find you interesting, it’s because I use Google Reader to read to all my news and blogs. So I have subscribed to your blog via RSS (even if you do not have an RSS link I can do so by going http://YOURBLOG.wordpress.com/feed/). So if I have found your blog and commented on it a few times, I have almost certainly subscribed, it’s just that wordpress won’t show it. If you happen to use google reader yourself, and subscribe to your own blog, you can also find out how many other people are subscribed via that tool. (And there are other RSS readers out there too).
