I’ve written numerous post on how to increase your RSS subscriber base. However, for this miscellaneous rambling post, I like to point you to Daily Blog Tips and their 50 simple ways to gain RSS subscribers.

I see I also set a new Twitter record. Thanks for following me on Twitter!

      sweet i just looked on usenet and its there. thats a movie you really gotta see on the big screen though

      1. Ryan McLean says:

        I am definately going to go see it on the big screen. Small screen often ruins really good movies. You need the full experience.

    2. Sohail says:

      Congratulation on your success and yeah the movie i gonna watch for sure

    3. Good to hear that you enjoyed the movie. I’ve read a couple review for QoS and none of them seemed to be particularly good ones. Guess I’ll have to wait until Friday to see for myself.

      Congrats on hitting your subscribers goal John.

    Thanks for including me in your ramblings post, John. I should also note that in addition to the three iPod accessories, I’m also including a paid review on Beyond the Rhetoric as part of the prize pack. John Chow dot Com readers are probably pretty familiar with my reviews by now, so they’ll probably know what to expect in terms of quality.

  4. Alex Fraiser says:

    I read the post at DBT earlier today, it was very useful and had a lot of killer tips in it.

    1. Definitely going to try some of them.

  14. I saw Quantum of Solace last weekend in the cinema with my 9yr old son, great movie but I’d suggest renting Casino Royale again before you go to see it. Worth it just to refresh on the story line.

  18. Congratulations on the milestones. I’m still interested in hearing the how many of your newsletter subscribers are the same people as your rss subsribers, and how this affects your Subscriber chicklet count.

  19. Ryan McLean says:

    There are too many comments before me to validate me writing a quality comment…no one will read it πŸ™

    Wow 40k, that’s incredible! Only show that hard work pays off. Even your rambling posts are great lol. I check out GeeksAreSexy’s top 10 reasons bloggers hate blogging and they are so true. The fact is if you are not passionate about what you are blogging about it is going to be a task. Do you want to complain everyday about posting something you have to research? No so choose something you are interested in and want to learn more about. Then you can research more about what you want to learn and blog away!

    And I can’t hate on Gemma Arterton being the new Bond girl. I’m British like she is & James Bond is obviously British, so the more real British people in Bond films, the better!
