Some people have mentioned that they're having problems being followers. You need to enter your full e-mail address and password, but you can remain anonymous. Of course if you wish to follow me publicly, that's very nice indeed. It's great to know who's reading my blog. The more the merrier.
I also love getting comments, as well as opinions on the content. So keep them coming! The word verification is only there to stop spam, I'm told this is a reasonable precaution to take.
