On the right sidebar, you'll see a section with followers. Please follow the blog, as it not only lets everybody know you are part of the community but will help us pick up more readers.
ALSO: I have learned how to enable threaded comments for this blog---do people want that? Then we don't need to refer back to comment numbers but rather can reply directly to an existing comment. Let me know if you'd prefer threaded comments or to leave it the way it is now.
