My trusty helper ... and some blog stuff
I am so glad you all liked my last painting as much as I do! Thank you all for your very kind comments. I relish every one of them!!
And speaking of comments, I have a few blogger/blog changes and issues to tell you about (that rarely happens, but right now they all seem to happen at once).
1. Thanks to KJ's blog, I have figured out that when I embed my comments into my post (rather than having a popup window) I can reply to each comment individually. It's so cool!! I've always felt bad that I don't reply much to comments and didn't know if I should write a separate comment or send an e-mail if I have an e-mail address, but this takes care of it. From now on, my reply to your comment will be right underneath that very comment. Yeah!!!
2. Sometime in January, Blogger apparently implemented a limit to blog rolls (the blog lists I have on my sidebars) of 166 entries. Well, I have more than that and right now that fact seems to freeze my blog list completely. That means I cannot remove blogs that are no longer in existence nor can I add any of your wonderful blogs I found just recently. My blog list is how I keep track of which blogs to visit, so this is a bit frustrating, but hopefully it will get resolved soon.
3. The new word verification that blogger has implemented (and not just blogger - I see it in lots of other places) is very hard to read. At least for me it is. To those of you who are wondering about not having word verification, I just wanted to say that I haven't had any comment control for the last two years (at least) and have only once been spammed. After that time, I went to comment moderation for a few weeks just to be sure and then went on without comment control again. It has not been a problem at all.
Well, that's it for today. No art to show at the moment. We are having a rain system come through here today and I can feel that the pressure is changing. That means - after a busy morning running errands - a quiet afternoon for me with my knitting.
What have you been up to today?! Hope it's been fun and enjoyable!
