If You Are After Empty Blogging Calories, Then Don’t Feed Here

I keep watching that feedburner just beneath my profile and all my shameless requests to have folks subscribe – and frankly, it burns me up a bit. It stays at a steady number of 12, jumps up, then sometimes it whittles down, or it’ll plummet.

I’ve noticed that this occurs most often when I actually post something that I realize most atheists would disapprove of.

I realize it’s sheer folly to rail at the readers, given the fluidity of the blogosphere – how many millions of amateur raconteurs are appearing per week, after all? But the issue as I see it, is that most folks, regardless of any ideology, tend to flock to the places that pander to them. However, attention whore that I am, I draw the line at sticking my nose up anyone’s backside.

So, thanks again steady readers. Your loyalty is appreciated. Those of you who would subscribe today, only to go frittering off somewhere else, well, go fritter off today.

If I may offer a suggestion, I suspect that RSS autodiscovery is giving you problems. When I pull up your site, I see at least 4 different feeds, none of which correspond to your Feedburner feed. It looks like you might have added Feedburner but not modified your template as needed. I'm just guessing here, but I suspect that might be part of what is happening. I've been subscribed to your feed for a long time but the link in my reader is not your Feedburner feed. I am changing that now, but I'd bet many others are using the original feed.

Hi Vjack. Thx for the suggestion.
Feedburner is now apparently run by Google, & I'm having a debbil of a time addressing it.
Likewise, my posts show up @ planetatheism w/o photos - Pedro says that I only have partial posts enabled, not full posts.
Most of these items are blink/what?, since I set them up eons ago.
But thx for the tip, & thx for being a loyal subscriber.
