I learned today that there is some sort of problem with comments on Blogger blogs, including mine. Normally, when you leave a comment here, I get an email. That email has your address on it, and your comment is the message. It's a simple matter for me to hit "reply" and continue the conversation.
I love that! Getting your kind, funny, inquisitive, supportive comments make the work of blogging completely worthwhile to me. I try to reply to each and every one of them unless you are a no-reply commenter.
However, that system seem to be broken right now. In order to see your comments, I must go to a special comment moderation page, click through to your Blogger/Google profile to get your email address, copy that, open my email, and start an email from scratch. I can't even cut and paste your comment, which is super frustrating!
I really hope that Blogger fixes this soon soon soon, because I have no idea how to fix it from here. If you have your own Blogger blog, you might want to double check that you are getting comments correctly. I know most of the QBS (Quilt Blogo-Sphere) is eager to recognize and encourage commenting to keep our community connected and vibrant.
The photo on this post is a ziplock full of my dark background strip scraps. I've set these aside to mail to Janice at Color, Creating and Quilting, who needs them for a new project. I'm happy to help her out, because that's just the sort of fun interaction I love so much about our little online world. Meanwhile, I'll try to keep up with your comments using the slow, frustrating method. Thanks for your patience!
