This seems like a valuable site for bloggers so far, but I have to ask you why I can't see the 'Follow this blog' tool anywhere on the page.
It is the only tool I use to bookmark blogs, as I've found that I never revisit browser bookmarks or open RSS feed readers. I'm sure I can't be alone in this behaviour.

Thanks Melody! The reason I haven't added the Followers widget is because I would have to convert to the Layout format, which would screw up my existing template. And besides, I have in mind to eventually move to Wordpress anyway.
