Because you don't get enough email

An alert reader just pointed out that I can allow readers to "subscribe" to this blog. Every time I post, Blogger (Google) will send you an email with a link. At least, I think that's how it works. 

If you're interested, just click or tap on "Subscribe" up above and enter the email address to which you want your notifications sent. Be the first one on your block to read the latest!

Or not, I understand completely.

UPDATE, July 15: I tried this myself, and it didn't work! Did it work for anyone else?
