Subscribe and keep in the Muse know

So here at The Muse Behind The Mask we have been very busy figuring out way to keep our readers informed since we aren't a daily update blog.

And by George I think we have figured it out. The Muse will be offering two ways to keep in the know. One being an email subscription and the other a live feed that can link to your favorite account source (ex. google, yahoo). That way every time you log in you can see a live update! FUN FUN.

The shiney new widgets will be kept below on the right hand side bar under all the Muse of the Month information. This is a learning expirence for us too so if there is an icky in the system let us know and we will try to work it out.

Stay tuned and subscribe so you don't miss out on any fun interviews or updates!
