Doc, what does "follow" include - do I get emails? Or just click it and still check in at my own will and volition? :)

Toni Brayer, MD said...

Anon and Country Midwife: Following really does nothing. I wish it would send a link or notice out for a new post...but it doesn't. Many readers have asked for that but I am not aware of any app that does that, except
Huffington Post. You don't get spam. It seems kind of pointless except to the blogger (me) who feels good that that many people have visited and taken the time to be a "follower" (like Jim P.)

Do Followers enable you to get more advertising links like the ones you have on the side bar?

Toni Brayer, MD said...

Anon 7:55: Maybe, but I think the ability to have ad links depends more upon unique visitors, which are tracked by google and others. I have never been too educated about the whole ad revenue enterprise but I would accept more sponsored links if they came my way.
