Follow this Blog!

I am not sure if you have noticed the new "Follow this Blog" option that Blogger offers. But below is how you start... I love it bc as most of you know I am totally addicted to blogging and watching everyone else's blogs... gives me something to do while my son takes a nap for 3 hours... and it is makes it so much easier.

Please click on the "Follow this Blog" link below my intro in the right hand column and get started... if you are interested in knowing how to follow some of your other favorite blogs see below.

Here is what the dashboard had to say about this new option:

*************************
Show off your Followers

Would you like to know who enjoys reading your blog? Or stay updated with your favorite blogs right from your Blogger dashboard? You can do those things and more with Blogger’s new Following feature.
By following your blog, your readers tell you and the world that they’re a fan of what you post. Your Dashboard now shows you how many followers each of your blogs has. With a click on the Followers icon, you can browse your followers, see what blogs they write, and read the other blogs they’re following.

Now that you know who your Followers are, you can show them off by adding the Followers gadget to your blog’s sidebar. From the “Layout Page Elements” tab, click “Add a Gadget” and select “Followers” from the gadgets list. The Followers gadget shows the profile pictures of your followers and gives your readers a “Follow This Blog” link to join up, too.

So what is the difference in "following the blog" and just having links to other blogs? That nature walk and those bridges were incredible. I'm going there when I come to visit. Like that? WHEN I come... Pierce is so funny standing up in front of the class. Why do they let him do that? Are they just super relaxed? The Orchid Garden was beautiful too. The venus fly traps over here aren't near as big or as pretty. I had one in my class at school. They REALLY eat flies! Crazy.
