Update: It’s been awhile since this article was published, but the total number of subscribers has increased to a little over 2,000 subscribers in 4 months since starting the experiment; this does not include those who unsubscribed.
I decided to take action and implement what I learned on my other blog and the result blew me away:
I got 1,000+ EXTRA subscribers within 2 months of making this change and today, at the time of writing this article, will make it exactly 2 months and 8 days since I implemented this change. The result? Approximately 1,200 subscribers from just 3 articles on my blog.
