Ah, thanks for replying. Forgive the somewhat delay in my reply. As it is now my turn to visit my girlfriend here over the next week-+, where she lives in Switzerland, despite having been occupied by work and Christmas duties prior to this time, the time I am being allotted to spend on the computer is under a bit of initial negotiation. :)
By the 'Reader', I was referring to the name of the official location here where the posts of everyone I am following appear; the equivalent of the 'news-reel' on facebook, I suppose. I was under the impression that I should be able to see any recent post of mine appear there as well. Although, as I was about to reply to this, I just happened to check under my 'Stats' and noticed there were many views for the blog I had posted yesterday. That might have had to do with having posted a link to this blog, on facebook, but am still not sure if one should be able to see their post as well as the posts of those one is following on said Reader.
