Sane rants on an insane world. Read at your own risk. Don't blame me if your head explodes.
Thanks for the welcome.
I see people talking about followers all the time. What is a follower button and why do people want you to be a follower?
'Tis an option that shows you any updated blogs as soon as you sign into yours, and the first bit of whatever was written (or the first picture). The "Follower" button is the "Join This Site" button, found (on my blog) just under my blog list, and my recommended book of the week.
Then I guess I am already following a bunch of people because my blog role does that, which is how I know to go look at new postings.
I use my blog roll and the follow button (about haft the time, my blog roll doesn't update right) for that.
