  1. Hey Shubham!

    I love feedburner!

    I like the social proof that can help you grow your audience even faster. When people see how many people have subscribed to your blog so far it gives your blog more authority. It’s the same with social media, the more followers you have the more followers you can get as a result.

    You just have to get the ball rolling with your subscribers and the rest is history! 😉

    Thank you for sharing these tips on feedburner! I’ve been using this tool for a long time and I highly recommend it.

    Cheers! 😀
