Get email notification of new posts by using the subscribe button at the top of the righthand side bar which you'll see wherever you roam on BN.
My favourite feedburner is FeedReader. Once you have it installed, go to the File menu [see small red circle in image below], select New then Feed, and a search bar will pop up [see long red squiggle in image below]. You can paste in the URL of the blog you wish to add, click Ok, and the feedreader will immediately load the blog's most recent posts for you, and will update the feed every time you open the application.
Happy modest reading!
