subscribe to me via email! I have that feedburner thing now

And yet, I still don’t know what feedburner is. I don’t get the concept. I don’t really care about the concept, except that I know people like it. I gather that it’s important. But frankly, with my zero natural technological ability, it’s a wonder I have a blog at all, let alone post stuff and not have pieces spilling over into the sidebar. I have the utmost respect for those whose brains allow them to grasp such things as burning feeds (what are “feeds” and why are they afire?), RSS vs. Atom (“atom” sounded cooler, so I chose that one), and such complicated notions. So how do I do anything on my blog? I click “help,” search for my question, then just follow someone else’s step-by-step instructions. And if ever the steps don’t line up exactly to what I see on my screen, I panic and just scrap the whole project. Really. I do that. And note: Any computer advice left in the comments to this post I won’t understand. I have two masters degrees, but I promise you, I won’t understand.

Phew, now that I vented about that, you can subscribe to the decorated cookie via email in that box over there in the right hand sidebar! I think. I just signed myself up and this post will be my first test. Hopefully it will all go well….

    Hello! What I do and it works very well, is to search google. You have to put the word or phrase and usually leave a lot of help. My so far I work very well. I can not help because the google translation is not very good and I do not quite understand the question. I hope good luck.
    A big kiss!

    Hahaha…I'm the same. What ever I need to do on my blog, I just Google and follow the step by step.
    I still don't know what feed burner is, and i don't know how to use it. I bookmark your site and all the sites I like, and I check them once a while

    I love your blog, and it looks gorgeous, so your technical skills look fine to me ;).
    The feedburner thing, well i suppose actually you've had it since you started your blog, because every blogger blog has it by default. Your blog has been in my feedreader for a couple of month already :D. I subscribed by clicking on the "Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)" link on the bottom of your page.
    Just love your sweets ^^! Keep up the good work!

    I have a "subscribe to" already? Oh, well, look at that! I had no idea. Wow, I'm completely clueless. If I wasn't so comically bad at this stuff, it'd be sad. Maybe it is a little sad.
