Being a rather remarkable 13-year-old with a 5-year farm plan and love of the Lord, I was browsing his blog site when I noticed that he managed to have INCORPORATED into his blog and reader a blog that I had previously been unable to add as it wasn't from Blogger.com and had no simple "follow this blog" button at the top. Apparently, I had not been utilizing my homepage well enough.
If you go to your dashboard, look at the reading list and you will notice two buttons at the bottom "Add" and "Manage." Using the "Add" there is a pop-up box. Copy and paste the home URL for the blog of your choice, and wonderfully smart google will make it follow in your list! No more forgetting to check up on my non-Blogger blogs and having weeks (or months) of back blog entries to catch up on!
