Follower or Subscriber?

Monday Musings on This ‘N That

The winner of last Thursday's drawing for a copy of Broken Trust by Sharon Dunn is Carolyn.  I'll email you to get your mailing address and get the book out to you. Thanks all for commenting. Watch for more book giveaways.

Some of you may be confused about exactly what a Follower on my blog is and the difference between a Follower and an email Subscriber. I know I was confused in the beginning. A Follower and a Subscriber are not the same.

In the column on the left when you click “Join This Site” in the blue box you become a follower of my blog. If you have a Google account, a picture of your face will appear on my blog. It’s nice to know others enjoy my blog and this is a way to see those who do. Those who follow my blog this way do NOT receive any kind of notification when I post something new on my blog.

A Subscriber is someone who signs up to get notification of my new blog posts through their email account. In the column on the left, beneath my photo, is where you can become a subscriber. A subscriber will receive an email whenever I post a new article.

I love to see your faces in my Follower box. Thank you so much for following me. Thanks also for being a Subscriber. But you can be BOTH. That way I can see those who follow and subscribers will always know when I put up a new post.

I appreciate the interest you’ve shown in my blog. I love to read your comments and hope you will continue to leave them. And I certainly hope you will continue to read my blog. If you have any suggestion or comment about my blog content or what you may want to see there, please let me know. There is a Contact tab above, the last tab on the right end.

Until next time ... keep on smiling.


  1. Hi, Jo... This is a very timely post. :-) Thanks for explaining this process in nutshell fashion. Blessings!

    1. Sybil, I was so glad when someone explained it to me in such a way that I could understand it! Thanks for letting me know I helped you understand it also.
