There really isn't an easy way to scroll through a board and find your post, usually, when you return to the board you'll return to the area of the thread you posted, so you can start viewing responses from there.
For notifications, you'll go to your profile, hit edit profile, and go down to "board settings" and then you can choose from the dropdown how you want to be notified. Make sure to save when done!
hope this helps
