I have just realised that if you 'Follow by email' rather than becoming a follower, you are probably reading the blog post which is embedded in the email. You are actually getting a much poerer version of the real McCoy. You need to click on the heading which acts as a link to the actual blog or you won't have access to photo albums or videos or a mass of other stuff. Not to mention that the blog just looks much better! Obviously the choice is yours but do try clicking on the heading at least once and see if you prefer to read the blog as a fully formed entity rather than just in mail.
This discovery also answer queries from people who tell me they can't see the album link or can't leave comments and various other queries I have had over time and had never been able to resolve. I hadn't realised they were following the blog from their email.
