Blogging Idol Competitors: You Need to Activate Your Feedburner Feed Count

By Daniel Scocco

This is a quick note for the bloggers that sent an application for the Blogging Idol. I am starting to create the scoreboard, and I am noticing that a large amount of the competitors don’t have the Feedburner feed count active.

In order for you to participate in the competition there are two requirements:

1. I must be able to find the Feedburner feed on your blog
2. You must have the “Feed Count” feature enabled

Those were stated in the rules so make sure you are meeting those requirements.

If you don’t know how to do this, here is a quick guide: Go to Feedburner.com, register an account and “burn your feed.” Then display that feed link somewhere in your blog. Then log into your Feedburner control panel, go under “Publicize,” and then “Feed Count.” Then activate it.

    @Arlind, you just need to have it active.

  • Arlind

    Does that mean that we have to put it on the sidebar or only activate it?

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Julio, yeah that is fine.

    As long as the feed count is active.

    My ” feed count ” was active and you can see it in the side bar, if not, please let me know. The total subscription was only 5 up till now, but I will try it to be more.

    Instead of Feed Count, I show the number of subscribers via XML (I don’t like that ugly image =/). Is it valid?
