It distresses me that you aren't notified of an update on my blog as you are with the open blogs. So this is my open blog. When I update my private blog, I will post here...you will see it in your feed....and be able to visit my blog immediately if not sooner.
Not that this means that you have to, but you can:) So update your google readers or whatever it is you do with THIS very website. Hopefully I'll remember to use it:)
