My text links had started to look cluttered, and when I logged in to feedburner and saw that my subscribers are using 20+ readers to read my syndicated content, & I was only offering a half-dozen one-click links, I decided to change things up.
Downside.... They don't offer a link to Google Reader yet. I e-mailed to suggest that.
On a related issue: RSS Buttons.
Read about the proposed feed icons for MSIE7 yesterday (only a month late...heh!!) & wonder "How many RSS buttons do we need?" How many different proprietary copyrighted logos for the same thing are there going to be? RSS is hard to comprehend as it is, and a bit of graphic consistency between sites and browsers would be most welcome. I'm as guilty as the next blogger, because I like my subscriber chicklet, but I'm thinking about this & considering burying the chicklet & using standard icons instead.
