So I finally set up a subscription thing on this blog. If you want to automatically be emailed any post I make to my blog, just send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" with "subscribe alerts" in the body of the message. After that, any posts I make to my blog will be directly emailed to you. This will not include comments or any posts that I would edit (you still gotta go to the site for that stuff).
This is "beta" meaning I dont know how well it works but it seems to do just fine. Let me know if anyone has an issue with it.
For those that use a mail program rather than a webmail system like Yahoo Mail or Hotmail, you can just click the link on the right side of the blog.
