First off, let me say thank you to everyone who commented on my post yesterday to express their feelings on the subject. I appreciate each and every one of them and am thankful that we can share our feelings in an honest way without being attacked for what we believe. I know some of what was said made me examine my own feelings and motives and gave me the opportunity to see the situation from different perspectives. I hope we all could do that. And as one commenter stated, first and foremost, we should be praying for Sarah Palin and this election, which I plan to do and ask that you do, too.
I just found out that Blogger has a new feature. Have you seen it? At the bottom of your dashboard there is now a Reading List. Here you can keep track of blogs you follow and readers who follow your blog. And on your dashboard, next to your blog name, there will be an icon showing you how many readers follow your blog. There's also an option where you can import and export these blogs to your Google Reader. I don't use Google reader so I don't know how all of that works.
On top of that, there's a widget for your sidebar that will display the avatars of all the readers who follow your blog. I don't have the widget installed as I write this post, but maybe by the time you read this, I will. If you'd like to follow this blog just follow the link, "follow this blog." And maybe you'll want to put the widget on your blog to show your community of readers.
So if you see someone is "following" you, don't worry that it's a stalker. It's just me, because I enjoy reading your blog.
