Okay, everything seems to be in good working order. Comments, archives, it’s all up and running.
I am switching to dotcomments for my feedback. It stores the comments locally, so even if it doesn’t provide an elegant interface, at least I will have some control over the comments. Seems prudent. However, it will probably be a short time until I work out the kinks. Right now, it insists on claiming their are 22 comments against any post that has no comments.
Reblogger seems to be down… send me an email if it you know it is working and I’ve simply goofed up the code on my page.
What strange creatures, these blogs. Out of the impersonal medium of the web comes this weirdly revealing format of exposing one’s thoughts to the public. Perhaps its no different than the games played all along in the chat rooms (“hi. i’m skeletor, pay me homage!”). The blog captures a reflection of that which one wants to reflect, a revealing display in and of itself.
