The Idiosyncratist has been running tandem on a new wordpress platform since the summer.
If you log in -- theidiosyncratist.com -- you can sign up to receive regular posts in your email. Look at the bottom right corner of the page. (For some reason, blogspot makes this much more difficult.)
My thinking in offering an alternative is this: It may be easier to delete something that doesn't interest you than to enter a cumbersome email address and discover only later that you're not interested in whatever's being offered.
I do appreciate my readers and welcome them to whichever platform they prefer.
