Many people have asked me how to do the above options, so I apologize for any confusion that you all may have. I GREATLY appreciate all of you and only hope to make this process as easy as possible.
1. To become a friend of the blog:
Click the Follow button located in the right column of the page (highlighted in the picture on the right)
