As you might remember, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was having some issues with spam comments. The spam comments have actually been quite complimentary on the whole—stuff like:
"You're so awesome! I do not suppose I have read through a single thing like this before. So good to find someone with original thoughts on this subject. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This website is one thing that's needed on the internet, someone with aBut then—bam—
bit of originality!"
"Review my blog post ... learn currency trading online." (Link removed because I don't want to support spammy shenanigans.)Totally flattering, right? Until you get to the whole random link that has nothing to do with anything I'm remotely interested in reading part.
Unfortunately, the issues haven't ceased. And though I'm not really that put out by deleting them—Blogger's filters do do *hee* a good job of catching most of them—it's just. Plain. Annoying.
And so, I am trying something new.
If you look below, *waits for you to scroll down* you'll notice that I've changed up my commenting system. I'm trying out Disqus, on the recommendations of Kristen of my life as a teacup and Marisa of A Parallel of Latitude. (Thank you, ladies!) I've used Disqus to comment on Kristen's blog and I like how interactive the whole thing is. I don't know if you've noticed, but I do try to respond to every comment y'all leave. With this new system, you'll be notified of my responses via email (I think).
And because I want this blog to be fun for everyone, if you hate the new system, let me know? Might take a bit to get used to, but it'll (hopefully) help save what little is left of my sanity.
