Hi, readers. I have had feedback from friends that signing up on my blog requires the prospective follower have a Google or Facebook or other social media account. As you don't want to add more stuff to your internet life, you haven't signed on my blog. That's a bummer. For those of you who are very happy with what you have, but none of it is the social media or Google-related sights required, I am trying to figure out how to get a signup that asks only that you give your current e-mail. Simple, hey? Actually, yes...

Google apparently wants us all linked into one happy world-wide family, all of whom spend 25 hours a day googling, facebooking, pinteresting, blogging and tweeting. That world view gives me the screaming willies, frankly.
I want you all to sign up and follow my blog without being forced to add yet another account to your already full roster. I would feel the same way were I in your shoes. I'm happy with what I have and I don't want yet another internet account clammoring for my attention, another password to keep track of, another way inside my computer to worry about.
And here, my friends, is how to do it. I have moved to the top column on the right the follow bty e-mail slot. Simply click on that and Feedburner (whoever he is) will ask for your e-mail. And you will receive all my blogs, without further effort on your part.
Ain't technology wonderful?

I try to answer all comments, but when I'm on the road sometimes I'm not near internet cafes. Patience! Eat some chocolate! I will get back to you!
