Feed(burn) me, Seymour!

I just added a Feedburner widgetty doohickey (over thar —> if you’re actually on the site). I don’t really understand Feedburner except that I always seemed to have no subscribers when I know for a fact I have at least three!

(Hi Joe, hi Billy Bob, hi Fuchsia!)

Well anyway, there it is. If nothing else that burning Eye Of Sauron Zero will humble me daily. Not that I aren’t ever so ‘umble already, me.

(Extra points if you can link last sentence and pic without Googling.)

    1. Yeah, the artist is Roger Dean. The clue is “I’m ever so ‘umble” but it depends on you knowing where that (mis)quote comes from. πŸ˜‰

      For all I know I’m being incredibly obscure, too. It’s one of those things I’ve had in my head for nigh-on 30 years so to me it’s obvious, which isn’t to say it should be for anyone else.

  1. Yeah, I don’t get Feedburner most days. My blog is even on Blogger (another Google owned product) and it still doesn’t give me an accurate reflection of subscribers. But whatevs, you can add me to your list of subbers, so you have officially four subscribers πŸ˜‰

  2. OK, I cheated and googled it. But I won’t give it away. And you are indeed being incredibly obscure; the art in question was from an album separated from your quote by 25 years. πŸ™‚

    1. More than 25 – the quote being from David Copperfield (the Dickens one, not the plane-vanishing one). What can I say, it’s from my youth. πŸ˜‰

  3. May i recommend using the wordpress plugin called FD Feedburner Plugin.
    This allows all existing feeds to redirect your existing RSS feeds to your Feedburner feed and thus allow you to track them easier.

    1. Thank you for the tip! πŸ˜€

      That said… I’m not too bothered about the subs numbers at the end of the day. It’s nice to see, but since I don’t intend to use adverts or anything, it’s really just another random number. I just remembered grappling with FB when I first started the blog, and it didn’t make much more sense to me this time around when I got prodded to try it out. At least the counter widget was easy to use.
