geeky thing #11 – chicklet allure

February 11, 2008 at 12:44 am Leave a comment

Now you want people to subscribe to yours… you can sign up with a free service called “FeedBurner”  (They were recently bought by Google, the same folks that own Blogger and the rest of the virtual world…but at least you know that things will be compatible.)

Go through their fairly logical instructions, then attempt to add a “chicklet” or RSS feed button to your blog, so that folks can easily subscribe and hang on your every word.  These icons/buttons let your viewer easily add your blog to their reader. Over there, in the right column at the top – that is the “chicklet” of which I write.
  1. Chickletize your web site. Encourage people to subscribe to your feed by posting a friendly graphic in an easy-to-find location.
  2. Why confuse would-be subscribers by offering the full menu of RSS and Atom flavors? Consolidate by serving up just one SmartFeed, digestible from any destination.
  3. Pleased with your circulation stats? Promote them using FeedCount
  4. For the XML literate, consider using the Awareness API to share your subscriber stats with directories and listings.
