Are you using FeedBurner to manage subscriptions to your blog? Check out your subscriber numbers today—they could be a lot higher. There appears to be a glitch today affecting many blogs, sending up feed counts by as much as tens of thousands!
Sadly, the counts probably aren’t correct. The problem looks to be FeedBlitz. They’ve acknowledged the error on their blog.
How can you tell if your popularity has grown or if there’s just a mistake? Go to FeedBurner to your feed’s dashboard. Click the “See more about your subscribers” link below the Feed Subscribers chart. If the pie graph that appears has a big piece for FeedBlitz (especially when compared to the day before), your counts will probably be back to “normal” tomorrow.
Not all blogs have been affected. Mine isn’t (too bad). So, while the error will be corrected soon, why not celebrate your current all-time high?
