And by the way, I found a post on this topic
(Are RSS Subscribers Worthwhile if they Don’t Visit Your Blog?)
But subscriber who don't read the post in your blog, but read your post via email, will not add your traffic stat? And we know in some case in purpose to making money, we need good traffic stat
Awesome link there Gloson, I swear that guy has done a post for EVERYTHING! ;p

Hey, i'm subscriber in many blog also, but i'm delete post in my blog :D
And also, read via email will make people lazy to come to your blog and commenting. Sorry if my opinion is wrong :D
Don't be sorry for your opinion... it's what makes it who you are and without it we'd all be the same, which would be VERY boring ;p

but we can't guarantee our subscriber will read our content in their email / RSS reader, right? So, how to measure that our blog is good/no? Subscriber stat is not a indicator. We can get subscriber easily by making contest ,etc..but their are not natural subscriber, they will unsubscribe when the contest is end
My blog subscriber is stuck at 30 up or down.
Why it always be fluctuative? Sometimes it will going up, sometimes down awhile and so on.
I really confused with it.
What is your blog about is my question. Because there is a topic which a market is so low, for example train syberian husky dog or other detailed topic. IF you take a detailed topic, then it is no strange that you're stuck at 30 maximum.
Do you post too often? Post too often can make reader get mad, and then unsubscribe. Maybe that's why your subscriber is fluctuative. Ever try my advice to make a contest? It's effective, but also thing a way to keep subscriber when the contest end.
Mine have like 7. I still have long way to go, but hopefully I would get there.
Oh I see. Notice that I don't often publish more than one post for a day. I usually publish one post per two day, when published my post I always get more subscriber than before. But, if I don't updated my blog anymore, the count going down.
Dunno why its always happened to me? Is person out there manually click the unsubscribe link on their reader or feedburner going down, eh?
