I highly recommend subscribing to email updates. It is how I follow all of my favorite blogs. What it means is that whenever I publish a new post, you will get that post in your email. Then you don't have to check back all the time to see if I wrote something new (I'm not very consistent, sorry). You should only get an email when I publish something new. I also recommend creating a scrapbook-only or favorite blog-only email account. It keeps things organized and doesn't clutter up important emails on your main account.
Another thing--to conserve space on the blog, I've added a "Read More" break to every post. That means that you will have to click "READ MORE" (under the dashed line) to finish reading the whole post. It is really annoying and I worried about people not seeing it, but I have to deal with it for now [. . .]
