NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)
Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Follow v. Subscribe
A question for all you other bloggers out there:
Do you prefer regular readers to subscribe to your blog or to be a Follower? Or do you have no preference?
I have no reason for this question other than pure curiosity. I got to thinking about it when the fabulous Rose City Reader apologized for taking so long to become a Follower. (No apology needed! I'm thrilled to see you no matter how you get here!) I don't think I have a preference, but I have to admit it's really fun to see all those little pictures on the Followers Widget, isn't it? :-) And you can see who they are and visit them back. With Reader subscribers, it's just an anonymous number.
I don't currently Follow any blogs, but I have over 200 in my Google Reader and I really do at least skim nearly every single post. (Perhaps I spend just a little too much time on the computer . . .) But if people really like the Followers concept more, I'd be happy to become a Follower, too!
