Tweaking the layout and figuring out how to use this.
I added subscribe links on the right.
If anyone sees this can you please try it and tell me if it works?
Personally, I think the best way is to Follow by adding to Google+.
That will allow you to see if I post a blog but also any actual posts to Google+. For you Xanga's that would be like seeing pulses as well and allow me to see you.
