Are you using Feedburner? North X East has an excellent tutorial on customizing the Feedburner Subscriber Count Chicklet. Using a WordPress plugin, and a bit of CSS, you can go from the default chicklet to something totally different. You didn’t honestly think you were stuck with the default one, did you? It doesn’t look good with very many site designs. If you’re a Feedburner-using WordPress blogger, take a look at the tutorial. Also note this: If you have less than 30 people subscribing to your feed, It’s perhaps better to not show-off your subscriber count. You don’t want to look like a puny blog, do you?
