I have a confession...

...I'm new to blogging (reading, following, and writing) too! (Yes, I know, it's not a juicy secret.)

I was a "secret" blog reader until I started my own blog. There were a few blogs that I read, but never commented or actually followed. I didn't know how or why I should. Since my blog has brought in a few new blog readers (and some of you have asked for this post), here's why and how you should follow As Good As Gluten.

Why should I comment or follow your blog?
1. I want to know what you think. Why you are reading, your thoughts on a recipe, your experience with a recipe, anything!
2. No, I won't think you're a cyber-stalker. Hi, my name is Lauren and I was afraid if I followed blogs or left comments the blogger would think I was a cyber-stalker. But, I've quickly learned that bloggers love followers and comments! No matter if we're close family & friends, coworkers, haven't talked in ages, or if we're complete strangers!
3. I'll find more great blogs to read by looking at your blog (if you have one) and seeing what blogs you follow.
4. It'll make me happy! :)  

The great thing about blogging is that you can follow/comment publicly or anonymously. You can use your email account, Gmail account, AIM account, blog, name, anything!

Ok, you've convinced me! What do I do now?
You can comment on any post by clicking the word "Comments" below each post. Add your thoughts, select your profile to comment under (yep, you can click anonymous or just type in your name), and press post comment. You might be prompted to enter some funny numbers or letters to make sure it's not spam.

And, you can follow As Good As Gluten by clicking "Follow" on the right-hand column of my blog under the header "Followers". Then you can choose how you'd like to follow a blog.

I have a lot of great recipes I'm planning on trying this weekend, so expect a lot of new posts this weekend! :)
