I received a wonderful comment from Marilyn at 4 You With Love telling me she enjoyed viewing my blog but there were a couple things she was bummed about. First, she realized I was a no-reply blogger. But she directed me here to tell me how to fix it. Then she said she wanted to follow my blog, but I didn't have a way for her to do so. Through a little bit of research I figured out how to encourage followers, and I now have Linky Followers on my side bar. Slowly but surely this newbie will get the hang of it. Thanks for your encouragement.
I do have a question for anyone who might have the answer. I made my signature, and I thought the html code would make it so that it was transparent. But it's not. Does anyone know why or how I might fix that? Thanks for your help.
