Yes, I know. Comments are slow to show up on the blog. I’m having trouble with my settings — I’m trying to set them so that only people who have never commented before have to have their posts moderated, but it’s not yet working for some reason, and all comments are being held in the moderation queue.
(That’s the emoticon for “facepalm,” btw. A friend of mine made it up. Pass it along.)
And to exacerbate the situation… I’m out of town at a friends’ weekend-long wedding party, with only limited access to the Internets. Access that’s limited even more by my unwillingness to be a complete jackass and check my phone every ten minutes at a party.
I’m sure this problem will be handled soon. New blog, tech problems — no big surprise, and not the end of the world. In the meantime, please be patient. I’ll moderate comments as quickly as I can. Thanks for hanging in there! And thanks so much for the awesome comment conversations — I am enjoying them hugely, and will jump in if I possibly can. Ta!
