Google has done away with Friend Connect for non-Blogspot blogs, which means that 800+ people who followed me that way no longer can do so.

If you are one of the people who followed that way, you can sign up for the RSS feed.

I also started a Google+ page but I’m not really sure how it works yet, so if you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate it.  You can “follow” the Google+ page by going there or clicking on the badge in the sidebar about 3/4 of the way down.
