A Big Thank You for Our 25,000 RSS Subscribers

By Daniel Scocco

Back in 2007 I wrote a post titled Celebrate Your Achievements. The main idea was the fact that celebration is good (not to be confused with bragging), because it keeps you motivated and enables you to share the achievement with other people.

Well, that is what I want to do with this post. Our Feedburner count is tracking 25,111 subscribers today. I know it is not a big deal, but it is always nice to know that some people appreciate your work.

So I just wanted to extend a thank you to all the people who read our posts, link to them, leave comments and so on. And if you are not subscribed yet, what are you waiting for? Here is the link to the RSS feed and Email subscription.

Now back to work, as the new goal is 50,000 subscribers.

    mention not daniel

    u rock………….

    congratulations. What does 25k RSS subs equate to in terms of traffic? Do you still get a lot of search engine traffic?

    I’m fascinated by the relationship between RSS and traffic levels e.g. I have sites with 4.5k RSS readers, but Google sends 70% of traffic, so the RSS count isn’t critical, whereas I have other sites where the RSS feed is critical to me.

  • Wallace

    DBT met a new milestone, congratulations~!

  • Shelly

    Many many congrats for this feat. At the same time, wishing you luck and quick jump to 50K mark.

    Although the posts at DBT do not bear your signature writing style (which is quite understandable as you’re into multiple works at present I know!), your blog is still a dear one. I and my friends have learnt a number of useful tips n tricks from your blog.

    KUDOS! Carry on being popular and successful. 🙂

  • Hesham

    Congratulation, you really did a great job!

  • Gordie Rogers

    Wow! That’s just amazing! Well done!

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Everton, I believe RSS helps with traffic, but it is not determinant, exactly because most of those subscribers will stop visiting your site and consume your posts on their RSS reader of choice.

    If you care about reach, though, which is how many people will eventually read your articles, then RSS subscribers is a better metric.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Muhammad, Shelly and Hashan, thanks a lot.

  • Michael @ Freshome.com

    Congratulations !

    25.000 people don’t seem to much when you see them as a number on the Feedburner counter, but try to imagine them live …25.000 people that subscribed voluntarily guided by their own choice.

  • Mr. I

    Congratulations on Reaching 25,000!

    Your posts have been very helpful to me as a blogger and I have learned a lot from you. Keep up good work.

    And yes, Good Luck for 50,000 subscribers! You will reach the mark soon!

  • Roseli A. Bakar

    Congrats Daniel, you’ve done a great job with this blog.

  • Mr. I

    And yes, by coincidence I have also crossed a small mark at my blog just today. I have crossed 200 subscribers(and am just to cross 1000 Twitter followers mark)!

    I know it’s small but hey, big things start with big steps! I am charged up to increase the count and write more good posts!

    I will also celebrate my achievements!

  • Kevin Muldoon

    Congratulations. That’s a superb achievement, Keep up the good work. 🙂

  • Everton

    disagree a bit about reach, as you can’t say RSS is better for that e.g. you could write a post on ‘how to use RSS’ that 100k people need to read each and everyday via google, so even though they never come back you still have 100k visitors each day.

    Agree that high RSS increases the chances of getting more links from fellow bloggers though.

    PS have you considered adding threaded comments? you’ll get more comments that way and make it easier for your readers (shame on you for not doing!)

  • Christina Crowe

    No, thank you! The information you provide in this blog has been very helpful. I just started my own blog a month ago and now almost have 100 visits, which is pretty good (since it went from 20 to 60).

    Thanks a bunch for the help!

  • Steve

    Can I have 10% of your rss readers? Seems like a big deal to have so many readers and so much traffic to your site. Very good job.

  • vanae

    good news! congrats dear!
    greetings from costa rica!


  • Marcus Hamaker

    From a person who currently has 26 subscribers… and fighting to build, I completely appreciate the celebration and wish to send my kudos!

    Geek on!

  • Nicholas Z. Cardot

    Congratulations! That’s phenomenal to have that large of a following. And to think that I am one of them. I feel that I’m a part of a privileged elite class of people. LOL. Keep up the great work!

  • Cammy@TippyToeDiet

    Congratulations! It is a VERY big deal and one worthy of celebration! I just had a similar happy moment at passing 250 subscribers and am looking forward to another one when I pass 500. 🙂

    Thank you for all the great content!

  • Harson

    Congratulations Daniel for getting that large number of subscribers. keep up the good work. you have helped me a lot with your marvelous ideas.

  • Eric C

    Congrats on the acheivement.

    Question: Is feed burner the only way to track RSS subscribers, or do you have any other recommendations?

  • yazaq

    I read your posts and find them interesting. Hopefully, you achieve your next goal, 50K subscribers, soon.

  • Keith Dsouza

    That is great news Daniel, have been following your blog almost since you started and it is great to know that you have reached such a huge milestone.

    Best of luck for the future.

  • Marija

    Not a big deal? That’s spectacular! Congratulations!

  • BloggerDaily

    I follow DBT because you provide a lot of useful information on blogging! Keep up the good job and good luck!

  • Indonesia Business Directory

    Congratulation Sir, and I had downloaded your wp themes. Thanks.

    I hope your RSS subcribers more and more big, for the future, I’m sure it could be 50.000 or 100.000 subcribers … Great…

    Thanks for all tips


  • Boerne Search

    Congrats, your work is very appreciated. I try and keep up on a daily bases. The advice you give is great and 80% of the time stuff I would have never even thought of.

    Keep it going, I love the site. 🙂


  • George

    Congrats Daniel. I can remember back when you started this blog, it’s been a great pleasure to see how successful it has been for you.

    It’s a great to see a nice guy finish first.

    I hop you can reach 50,000 subscribers in 1/10th the time it took to reach 25,000.

  • Tech @ InkAPoint

    Hard Work pays uuu Dani.

    25k is not enough. There’s no limit for success.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Eric C, I have seen some home made scripts for tracing subscribers around, but I would guess they are not as reliable as Feedburner.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Everton, I will add those on the next theme change. Lack of time is the reason for not having it.

  • wo@soho

    it’s so great, my rss just over two hundred.

  • Nags

    i think that IS a big deal 🙂 Congrats and you are welcome!

  • Stephanie

    25,000! Awesome. Keep up the good work.

    I’m actually not surprised by the number. You do a fantastic job here at Daily Blog Tips. 🙂

  • Vikas KM

    Congrats dude..

    One thing about your blog is that you write short posts and quite interesting.. which i like a lot.. as none has time to read long posts..

    Your blog rocks…

    Best of luck for your new milestone…

  • George Serradinho

    Wow, 25k is a huge number. Would also like to know what your daily traffic is when you post. If it makes your daily traffic high or not. I know sometimes I have subscribed and get the email updates and first view the email to see if there is anything interesting for me to read, if not then I delete the email update.

  • Liane YoungBlogger

    I bet it wouldn’t take more than a year to reach the 50k mark. 😀

  • S.K Sharma

    Sharing is caring.Congrats!keep blogging and teaching.Soon you your achievement 100000 subscribers….
