I've been asked how to follow my blog -- here is how I follow (dozens of) other blogs:
I like Google/Reader. Very easy tool, far better than tracking via Favorites. Simply go to www.google.com/reader
You'll see a button where you can ADD a subscription. You simply need
to paste the url to the blog that you want to follow into the add a subscription box. And, when you visit Google/Reader it will show you a
list of blogs that you want to follow that have been updated (have
posted since the last time you've read their blog).
These instructions were shamelessly stolen from SewCalGal. She also has careful instructions on how to win a giveaway -- something I may be doing next year, so take note. Thanks, SewCalGal!
