I know some of you have had trouble becoming a "follower" to this blog, especially if you have a yahoo account. I did some searching and never really found an answer as to why that is not working. But did find that it's easy to create a google account. You can do this with the email address and password you already have, so it doesn't create a new email address or anything for you. So, to become a follower (meaning you will get email updates when we update the blog):
1. click Follow on the right sidebar above the pictures of followers
2. click on Google
3. set up a google account if you don't already have one
4. choose if you want to follow publicly or privately. If you follow publicly, your name and/or picture will be on one of the little squares. If you choose to follow privately, your picture and name will not be displayed, but you will still get the email update when we update the blog. I just won't have any idea you are following along.
Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. If I don't know the answer, I'll google it!!
