    Hi zahrah, and welcome to Using English.

    That phrase doesn't make much sense. Could you give the entire sentence?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hi Barb_D

    thank you for replying ...
    I found this phrase while I were surfing through the net to get an article and summarize it for my English class and I found this strange phrase (at least to me)

    Following on More Than Friday: The Ones Who Teach Me

    Note: I tried to post link to this article. However, it seems that my post count should be 5 or greater in order to have the ability to post links or image. you can copy the above underlined phrase and paste it in the google search engine and you will get the whole article immediately. thanks in advance

    To be honest, Although I found another appropriate article and I finished the summary, I still insist to know the meaning of the previous phrase. I might be curious

    Here's the link:

    As far as I can tell, "More Than Friday" appears to be the name of the blog. When you subscribe to get updates from someone's blog, you're said to "follow" it.

    I still can't quite fathom why it says "Following on More Than Friday", unless he's somehow saying that the people in the article are people he is following, via the "More Than Friday" site.
