A sign of desperation, you say. NO, not at all. I do want to boost the numbers of readers for my blog and one way to achieve that is to get you to sign on as a ‘follower’, You can always delete that option in the future, If my words get on your nerves. Like dear old Mum used to say---you can always switch channels! So, go do it---no not switch channels---click on the ‘followers option and receive your daily fix of my ‘fix on fixing the world! Too much ‘fixing’ going on here, me thinks.
