You may have noticed I have been tweaking my template. I am reasonably pleased with it despite my meager design skillz.
One addition I am trying out is the little form in the top right (which is confusingly next to the search form, hmmm). This allows you to sign up and subscribe to my blog via email. I realised that the majority of my readers will be friends and family or flickr contacts who will not necessarily be using feed reading software and can certainly not be expected to visit the blog every day, thus having this email subscription form makes it easy to keep in contact.
I am also trying out feedblitz, I am not sure which is the better option. The wordpress plugin is free but feedblitz offers more control (no point in using the free feedblitz option as it is not as good as the free WP plugin).
