Sign up by leaving a comment. I will do my best to remember that blogger is totally and completely unreliable and wonky when it comes to actually notifying me when a comment is left so that I approve all legitimate comments. 

If you would like check-in posts throughout the year, please mention it in your sign up comment. If you are neutral or don't like checking-back-in mention that too, if you don't mind. I'll do what most want--or try to remember to do so. Let's be honest, intentions at the start of the year don't always stick.
