Hi! Loving this blog. Just wondering if it is possible to ad the ability to subscribe to the blogs on the page and the ability to search for specific articles within the blogs. If you already have the feature enlighten me as to how to use them. If not, then they are two suggestions. Thanks. Keep up the great posts.

Google allows you to subscribe through their Reader service. But I have set up the blog with an RSS feed so that you can subscribe through other services, like NetVibes.

The search tool is easy. Just use the little white rectangle in the upper left-hand corner.
