    Well, in my opinion, if the subscriber is getting the post to their inbox, they're less likely to come and comment than if they are already on the site. I keep up a good consistency of posts on my blog (1 post every two days), so people always know when to check back for new posts anyway.
    Hey! I am one of your subscribers lol.

    I'd rather have more subscribers. The main reason is: A subscriber is better than a first and last time visitor to your blog. They are interested in your content, and that's probably why they hit 'Subscribe'.

    And by the way, I found a post on this topic

    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

    Hmm, I don't know, I suppose it's just which way you look at it. Personally I think the readers that subscribe will usually be quality visitors anyway, so they're more likely to bookmark the blog and check back every few days anyway. That said, the new design for my blog is very RSS orientated ;p

    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

    Regarding your post, I believe that I only really want quality comemntators on my blog anyway, I'm not fussed about the 'nice post' comments and usually delete them anyway. Therefore, if they're too lazy to visit my blog, they'll probably be too lazy to leave a good comment, too.

    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.

    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?
