Testing out a new comment system

I’m testing out a new system for posting comments. Please let me know what you think of it.

Thank You All!

Earlier today I asked for your help with an unforeseen cost for Blogging Blue, and you all came through in a big way.

I just wanted to extend my sincerest thanks to those of you who made a donation. It wasn’t easy for me to ask you all for help, but I appreciate your generosity […]

A call for contributors

It’s no secret I believe Blogging Blue has some of the best commenters around. I’ve long maintained that the success Blogging Blue has enjoyed is in large part because of our vibrant and passionate community of commenters. In fact, two of Blogging Blue’s contributors – Ed and Steve – started as commenters here.

So what […]

I Don’t Have Time For This Stuff!

I really really don’t have time for moderating or editing comments or any other nonsense. I expect all of you to be adults…and most of you are. For the time being I am going to ask Zach to take anyone that I requested put on moderation to be taken off.

Taking a few days off

It’s been quite a week, so I’m taking a few days off. I promise I’ll be back posting soon, and I’m sure you’ll be in good hands with Ed & Company.

This is it – a note on comments

I’ve got a bone to pick.

Quite frankly, I’m sick and tired of being bombarded with complaints about how nasty and vitriolic the comments section has gotten here at Blogging Blue, especially considering the complaints seem to revolve around the same few people. Having read some of the comments on this thread, I’m absolutely and […]

We’re back!

Obviously if you’re reading this you’ve noticed that Blogging Blue is back online.

I just wanted to say thanks to you all for your patience as we worked through our technical difficulties.

Thanks for a great 2013!

As 2013 draws to a close, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for reading and contributing so much to Blogging Blue over the past year.

While other bloggers may feel compelled to brag about page views and unique visitors, I’m just going to say that 2013 was a […]
