Some nifty additions to blog

I wasn't too happy with my blog stats counter before, so I decided to replace it with Google Analytics (it's invisible to readers and allows me to see cool information on where my readers come from - I already filtered out my dad's IP address, because it tended to skew the numbers :)).

Adding Google Analytics involved making a small change to my blog template, to add a tiny bit of JavaScript at the bottom. While doing that, I noticed that Google has added a bunch of "gadgets" which can be dragged and dropped into the template - a couple of them were cool enough for me to add.

As a result, now you can "subscribe to" my blog using various methods and also become a "Blog Follower" - cool stuff! Good job, Google!
