I generally assume that people who read blogs use an RSS reader, like Google Reader or FeedDemon (which is what I use), rather than hopping from one website to another in your web browser. You can even use Outlook 2007 or 2010 to gather blog updates automatically. But talking to friends and acquaintances leads me to suspect that not many people are using feed readers.
So in response to a few requests, I’ve added a “subscribe by email” box on the top right of the my blog. If you want an automatic email every time a new blog post appears here, please put your email address into the box and press the subscribe button. You’ll get an email asking you to click a link to confirm that you really do want to receive updates. Once you’ve pressed OK on that, you’ll get every new article by email.
Please let me know if you experience any problems making this work.

(For the technically minded, I’m using the Subscribe2 WordPress plugin.)
