    Hey – I commented a long time ago to enter and you told me I was entered and I don’t see my name. . .please fix asap – thank you.


    @Daniel, You can automate the process very well. There are scripts which can fetch the counts and display them in text. A quick search like “how to show feedburner subscriber count as number (or text)” takes me to

    You can save the initial and current value in a database table, and update the current values once a day using thise script in a cron job.
