help, please ?

Just wondering if any of you people out there can help me with a blog thing ?
You will see from the last post that BetteJo has asked me a question about subscription to the blog . This is something which has long puzzled me ... when I first started reading the Freddie blog I subscribed which meant that each time Tim posted , I received an email which told me there was a new post and took me there via a link .
I hoped to set the same thing up on mine but wasnt able to find the way . Though I went through what seemed to be the right motions , having read all the blurb , it just didnt work like that though I was able with other blogs to use google Reader myself to get updates . But it was never quite what I wanted , which was the e mail way .
Now that BetteJo has raised this it has set me wondering again ... and also wondering about my other readers, and how you operate .
I'm fascinated , now I look at my stats , to see that there are people coming back and back to read , and I wonder whether you all do what I do when I read blogs which is simply to save links and log on each time .Another source of satisfaction is why people keep coming back , is it the cat connection , the pictures , the other pictures , or the bits of writing ? I started writing to publicise the CatCalls website and as far as I know none of my latest enquiries have been connected to the sites though I do know some of my catcalls families do read the blog as they've told me they do . So it all remains a bit of a mystery to me why I get returners , though very gratifying it is too, as Im sure all of you bloggers out there will know . And oh the joy of a Comment !
What I really need is to know more about you people ! maybe I should invite everyone who reads to make a comment and just tell me something about you and why you read , what else you read ( great way to find new blogs ) and what you like and don't like . Now there's a challenge !
And if anyone knows anything about Subscribe and how to , please tell me ?!!

:) I love cats. And I am curious how you took that pic at the top with the kitty lounging - and I don't see a single cat hair!!! :)
I enjoy the pics, but also the honesty of the posts, even the migraines and vomit. Also enjoy the differences I detect between the UK and US, even just in speech. So those are my reasons for being here. I think you're interesting.

Oh I forgot, I don't get an email telling me you or anyone else has posted, when I am on my computer I always have my Google reader open and it updates whenever there is a new post. Your blog registers as feedburner, as opposed to "catcalls". Sorry I'm no more help than to point out the problem!

Thanks for your wonderful feedback BetteJo, there are tons of cat hairs you just dont see them as they're white . But everyone comments on my clothes all the time , and people tend to try to clean me up with bits of sellotape . It never works .
Im no further forward re the subscription thing so if anyone else can help .
The pictures of Pearl , the top one she was just in her favourite chair ( which is also my chair) .
Did you mean the one where her feet are through the chair rungs ? She' s a Birman , and one of their quirks is the way they lie with their front paws out and then crossed. She often lies with her paws poked through the chair , all my cats do that . No cruelty was involved as they say !!!

Thanks again for comments .
