For blog newbies-
You will be asked to sign in with your Google account. It is easy to register for a Google account and once you register, you will use your user name and password for your Google email account to leave comments on this blog or to follow the blog.
Never fear, though, once you register for a Google account, you needn't use that email address for your email communications. It will just allow you to post here.
To comment on a post, click the comment link below the post (look for the pencil!), type to your heart's content and then click post comment. Voila.
You can also register to be a blog follower while you're at it. I always wanted groupies!
