Help me. Please help me. I’ve been trying and failing to sign up to all your blogs as a subscriber so I’ll receive posts as emails whenever you update. Now I have a whiz-bang new phone, I then ought to be able to read them while feeding, which will keep me nice and up to date and connected. Having thought I’d already gone through the other day and ticked the subscribe thing on all my blogging friends’ blogs, I have received a grand total of NIL emails. So what am I doing wrong?? Please tell me!! Someone, anyone – how hard can it be?!

I then copy the url into the little box that appears. It will then show the most recent posts of that url and if I’ve already read them, I just click on mark as read. After that new ones show up in my reader. Does that help at all?
