Yes, that 6,856 subscribers under the sidebar is right from feedburner.
The title says it all, it’s a massive heart stopping mystical feed count spike – that happened in just one day…
I’m not saying it’s legit though.
It looks like someone is trying to spam me using FeedBlitz, it’s not that bad. But of course, it will mislead some people and mostly advertisers. I’ll observe it for a day or two and then I’ll ask Feed Blitz about it.
For now, let me enjoy the big numbers and visualize what would happen in the near future ;-)
