Produce great content and email the readers to subscribe who left their comments in your blog.

Make sure you have RSS subscribe buttons up top somewhere where everyone can see easily.

Well as kenjitoday said, make sure to have a subscribe button for your RSS feed somewhere in your blog.

Also another method that has worked for me, and still works, is to remind your readers at the bottom of the article that they can subscribe to your RSS feed.

Another method, which I dislike actually as you can't measure your quality of "readers that like your content" is to run a sort of contest and give away prices to users that have subscribed to your feed.

Cheers

Add RSS autodiscovery code and submit the blog's RSS feed to RSS search engines and directories.

Also allow dofollow blog commenting.

A couple of things I would like to mention, spend time commenting and following blogs in your niche. Get connected with your fellow bloggers and become an authority, from what I have read it takes 1 to 2 years. Don't think that just because you write excellent content and publish regularly people will join you need to promote your blog. Anyway i only have 4 followers right now in feed burner and I started the blog last month so dont give up just keep writing and writing the more you write the better you get. Also write catchy headlines.

Great content is not the only thing you need to gain subscribers. Promote your content via forums, social sites, try guest posts on niche blogs. Make subsctibing as easy as you can.

^^ One thing I like about this is guest posts on niche blogs, if you become friends with blogers in your niche then you can promote each other any way good post dimok.

kbeus21, build relations with blogers of your niche is extremely good thing for many reasons:

1. promote each other
2. find topic to write on, maybe discussing the same thing from different points of view
3. help each other to rank well in social sites

etc

More subscribers lead to more income on advertisements, more traffic to blog and so on. Do you really think it's useless?

To get more subscribers to your feed, make sure you #1 have a good supply of traffic, #2 make sure you submit your feed to rss directories regularly, #3 make sure the people who visit your site know that they can sign up for your rss feed.

Choose a specific niche, topic or subject. This way you can focus on your targeted audience interested in your blog. Chances of subscribing will be increased specially if your audience wants more of what you are writing about.
