A note about comments

Several people expressed confusion about leaving comments on this blog... sorry for not being more clear! The ability to comment is open to everyone. Here's how it's done.

At the bottom of each post are the words "0 comments" (or, hopefully, "1 comment" or more!). Click there to open the comment window.

If there are comments already, you can read them there, and then there is a box for your own comment. Fire away!

Under that is a funnily-printed word, which you must type correctly where it says "Word Verification" to prove to the computer that you are human. (Trust me, you don't want to know what non-humans might post to a blog.)

After that is the "Choose an identity" section, and this is important: unless you have a Google or Gmail account, click on the "Other" button to be able to just put in your name and web page, if you have one. I don't need your email address or full name, just something identifying would be nice. "Anonymous" is not polite! If you do have a Google account, and want to use it, select the "Google/Blogger" button and put in your Gmail username and password: Blogspot belongs to Google, so it's safe and no one will steal your password.

Finally, go ahead and push the "Publish Your Comment" button. Your comment will appear immediately, so be sure you mean what you say. Otherwise, I hope these instructions are clear; let me know by following them!

Cheers, Heather
