The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

Just wondering if there's a way to see how many users have subscribed to a blog?

Armchair warriors often fail, and we've been poisoned by these fairy tales.

No. Neither as the blog poster, nor as another reader of the blog.

Meh: Depends on whether you're writing for yourself or for others. It's probably my particular personality, but I think of a blog as for myself--unless it's a commercial blog, for publicity.

BGG does give you a measure of how engaging your blog is: How many people thumb, tip, or leave comments?

You have to admit it would be a nice feature to provide some stats to bloggers about how many people view, subscribe to, etc. - their blog. Not a lot of info, and nothing revealing personal identification or anything . . . just raw data on page views and BGG subscriptions.

Admin? Anything? Sound good?

And I mainly blog for myself, just something to do, but it would be nice to see who's listening and what the subscription trends are (or in my case, are not). :-)

I suggest you post the idea in BGG Suggestions--and link to that thread here. You've made some good points. This is exactly the kind of data BGG collects regularly, so it's reasonable to supply it to bloggers.
