Just a quick note on housekeeping issues:
1) Some of you have asked why your comments didn’t appear right away but got shelved for moderation. Answer: I have my spam filters turned on quite tight for this blog. Anyone who posts a comment for the first time automatically gets moderated. After that, they can post comments unmoderated. Also, any post that contains a link will automatically be moderated, since all spam contains links. My spam filters have identified 126 comments as spam. Of those, 125 were real spam, some disgustingly filthy. 1 was a legitimate comment, which I allowed to post.
2) Thanks for all your suggestions on forum software! I appreciate your suggestions. I’ve got several candidates and will be narrowing it down as I study them carefully. I want to choose a good solution.
3) Those of you who have blogs, let me know if you’d like to be on my blogroll. If you have no blog but have a web site, I can put you on my Writers list. I’m thinking that I’ll limit most people to be either on my Writers list or on my blogroll, just so neither one gets overfull. So I’ll be trimming the duplicates out shortly. Don’t take offense–I just don’t think duplicates serve any useful purpose. I will allow duplicates for those of you who run editing services, for which I have a separate category.
4) Thanks to the many of you who’ve linked to me on your own blogs. My technorati rating is steadily improving. If you’ve linked to me and I haven’t yet reciprocated, just send me an email. I may simply not have noticed. It’s been busy lately.

I don’t do much blogging and when I do, it’s on ShoutLife, which won’t let non-members read blog entries anyway, so I see no reason to publish links to that. But I’ll take you up on that writer’s link to my website. Thanks, Randy!

I’ll trade you links if you like. I already have your main page on there and forgot to tell you (bad form, I know). But I can add the blog link.
Looks like your jumping into the world of Blogging with flare Randy 🙂
I would love to be added to your blogroll if you still have room 🙂
Happy Writing (blogging)

I’m not a blogger either. Please keep me on your Writer’s list. I do enjoy reading everything that is is written. Thanks.
Hi Randy. I just linked to you on http://www.relevantblog.blogspot.com. You appear first on my blogroll.

Do you have code for a linked button suitable for a Blogspot template? If not, send me the png for an appropriate button and I’ll make a link.

Yours is the only blog I’ve ever followed religiously. Thank you for your efforts and time.
I have linked to your archive in my website,FIREBORN.
I have both a blog and a website and would love to be listed in either category.
Thanks for the opportunity,
