The Big Bloggy RSS Button

RSS feed-button

My quest for a large and bloggy looking RSS button is now over, thanks to Geekwhat. Go ahead, click the rather large, shiny flippin’ button.

I’ve heard rumors that the bigger the button, the better the subscription rate. It can’t be that simple can it? Are we that easily duped? Ooh, look at the shiny button… must click, must click on it…

    Also, as WEEBE asks, did your subscribers increase?

    It’s cool. Looks like a flat Halls Orange :)

  17. “I’ve heard rumors that the bigger the button, the better the subscription rate.”

    I’ve also heard about that rumor. If I decide to use this one I might have to resized it and put it in the footer.

    […] made an alarm clock that had a scrolling RSS feed on some kind of display, and as soon as you hit a big button it would download a brief, podcast-style news report related to that item? It could have all the […]
