Essential reading for Blogger users

    A little sojourn off-topic for you this morning, but important reading for people whose writing is hosted on Blogger.
    You may have noticed that Blogger has undergone some changes behind the scenes over the last year. New template styles and a completely new interface as Blogger is brought under the consistent Google look-and-feel.
    One of these changes has found its way into the public-facing side of Blogger. That little checkbox that used to appear in pop-up comment forms allowing you to follow comments by email. It's gone, so your readers can't see replies without going back to your blog.
    Its replacement, a 'subscribe' link, only appears beside the embedded comment form. So for the sake of your readers who'd like to be able to subscribe to your comment streams by email, please could we ask you to change to the embedded comment form.
    It's an easy process. From the Blogger menu, choose 'Settings'. From the sub-menu, choose 'Posts and comments', then find the 'Comment location' pulldown. Select the 'Embedded' option and click the 'Save' button. That's it, you're done. The 'subscribe' link should appear by the comment form at the bottom of each post.
    Your readers will thank you for performing this task.
