Bloody RSS

The ProBlogger post explaining how you can see how many Google Reader subscribers you have caught my attention because my RSS traffic has always been a bit of a mystery to me, especially since WordPress.com dropped its RSS stats. Web traffic is nice and easy to measure, RSS traffic not so!

I really, really wish I had switched to a Feedburner RSS feed when I first started this blog but doing so down the track doesn’t seem to make sense as any stats I get from Feedburner will only show a portion of the picture. Now I know, there’s a way to divert your WordPress default RSS to Feedburner but when your running off the hosted WordPress.com it isn’t so simple so I’ve never bothered and therefore never really had a good idea of what kind of RSS traffic I was getting.

Apparently, I’ve got 197 Google Reader subscribers which I’m feeling pretty good about considering how little I’ve been blogging recently. If you’ve been reading Squash for a while, you’d know that during the Rugby League season down here in Australia I don’t blog a lot on Squash because I write another blog about the team I follow which pretty much absorbs any spare time I have. But Footy season is over now so I’m hoping to try and blog daily again. It will certainly be nice to have a metric like this Google Reader one – as incomplete as it obviously is – to see if I have any luck at building this sucker up again.

    An attic fan requires additional roof vents to draw in fresh air as the hot air is exhausted. A whole house fan is a primary natural cooling device that can significantly enhance, reduce or even eliminate the need for ‘manufactured’ cool air. Consuming far less energy than air conditioning, a whole house fan can significantly lower the temperature in a building very quickly. Effective whenever outdoor temperatures drop below indoor temperatures, an AirScape Whole House Fan can cool down your home and your electric bills.
