Blog move coming soon!

Part of the reason it’s been a bit since I posted is that I have been doing some research.  Research on blog moving options.

As part of a forum, the RabbitTalk blogs are very much in a security lockdown.  They present a vulnerability to the forum that doesn’t exist with a regular blog hosted elsewhere, and linked in your forum signature.

When I started this blog, I strained against the restrictions placed on it.  Once I understood why they were there, I settled down.  Our amazing webmaster told me that if I ever outgrew the setup, he’d be happy to help me move it.

Outgrow?  Move?  Nah, this is safe.  I’ll stay here.

Well, okay, I’ve outgrown it.  I want to stretch my wings.  I want to fly.  I want a live updating blogroll that’s easier to deal with.  I want an editable theme.  I want… lots of things!

So I’m going to be moving soon.  When it happens, I will post my new address.  Don’t worry, MidnightCoder has offered me a redirect, so you can still come here, and you’ll be taken there.  :)

Please bear with me!

Hey, I got in!

I’m not quite sure why, but I’ve been unable to log into my blog recently.

I finally managed to get in, but I do have an error message I have reported to my webmaster.  Why I hadn’t contacted him before, I don’t know.

Ah, well.  I’m back now.  Time to post!  :D

Change to comment period

Just wanted to let you know that I have closed comments on posts that are over 90 days old.  When a post hits that mark, comments on that post will automatically be closed.

I had left them open because I did not want to exclude the comments of those who might come across a post they like long after it has been posted.

I am closing them because my experience has been similar to that of a friend who had a blog.  The only people who comment on posts that old are spammers.  That didn’t bother me for a while, as I’d have only one or two spam comments to moderate every once in a while (there are thousands that I never see — I see only those that made it past the automatic filter).  Lately, it hasn’t been unusual for me to need to moderate 10 of them an evening.

I don’t need to be doing that.  The time is short, and I don’t need to be wasting it on moderating fake comments.

I love getting comments.  If you really want to comment on an older post, send me an email through the contact page, and I’ll reopen it temporarily for you.  :)

Thank you all for coming here and reading.  I apologize for not posting as much as I thought I could around this time.  I had forgotten that I needed to work on the family calendar when I said that!  I’ll be posting plenty in a few weeks.
