  1. I’m not 100% certain actually how the awards are done. I’ve never been a part of them. I know the Hugo’s have a lot of community involvement since anyone can put in a vote.

    As for subscribing. The easiest way is to use Google Reader:
    You should have a Reader anyway since you are on Blogger. If you don’t have a reader, activate one and then come to my site and on the left hand side towards the top is a orange colored square icon. Click that and it will take you to the feed page. You’ll see on the right top there are all these buttons there. They are for all the different feed readers. Find Google or if you are using a different feed reader look for that. Click it and follow the instructions. I prefer Google Reader since it is easy to add stuff. It shouldn’t take you more than 3 clicks actually. Just click the button, click Add To Google, and then Add To Reader and it should just do it and you’re done.

  2. Well then you should PROBABLY go over to the SFF Canon Project blog and put a comment there suggesting some of her works so I can put them on the list of stuff to discuss đŸ˜›
