Thank you for the feedback in the comments and via e-mail on how to get my blog up to date with the technology! (Meredith - your details were especially helpful!)
Two features I set up for your reading convenience are:
* Subscribe via your reader of choice: Bloglines, Google Reader, etc...
* E-mail subscription - click the link and subscribe to receive all posted updates by e-mail.
Both links are located under the "Credits" heading at right.
I appreciate all of your help and especially your patience as I am learning! Hope this helps!
