One of the reasons I was so psyched about this new site was because anyone and everyone could comment if they so desired without signing up and creating a username and password.
But -- and this is a big but (bigger than Anna Nicole's butt circa her reality show) -- I miss knowing who the comments are coming from. Don't get me wrong, I completely appreciate the need for an "anonymous" response once in awhile. Sometimes I wish more things in life could be done anonymously. Like farting.
Others of you take the time to type in your whole blog address in the "Name" column or even within the comment box itself, and to those people I say: "Hello (insert your name here)!" Because I can.
However, it wasn't always creating a link to your sites and I couldn't figure out why. So I played with it and figured it out.
If you would like to leave a comment and link back to your site (which I would greatly appreciate; plus you may get some site traffic out of it, that is, if you're into that sort of thing), you simply have to click on the "Other" bullet, put the entire web address in the "Your web page" category INCLUDING the http://.
NAME: novelle360 (or "Kelly" or whatever you want the link to say)
YOUR WEB PAGE: http://www.novelle360.com
This should create a link back to your webpage that I and others can visit.
(And now please excuse me while I rant to those I hold near and dear. )
ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE IN MY LIFE (in no particular order): Mom, Carl, Glrr, Grandma, Sean, David, Lisa, Courtney, Annie, Andrea, Alan, Erin, Whitney/Weber, Sarah, Gisela, Timberly and Jerry.
I've come to terms with the fact that people who have seen me in the flesh (to varying degrees) read this site. I always think twice about swearing because I can feel my mom shaking her head. Then I remember that it's no secret that college opened up a deeper understanding of the F word for me and all it's uses. ... It's a verb, it's a noun, it's an adjective, IT'S SUPERWORD! Anyway, my point is, YOU'RE ALLOWED TO COMMENT. I WOULD LIKE THAT. Nay. LOVE that.
Gisela, you're sort of off the hook because you called me a dork in my birthday post. And I know that "dork" is your term of endearment for me. You tried to bring me into the fold of hip hop and all that is sparkly and uber fashionable, but let's face it, this girl likes classic, clean lines and the color beige. I embrace my dorkiness. Especially when compared to you. Your skin tone will always be able to pull off brighter colors, my friend, and I'll just stand next to you and bask in the glow.
Timberly and Andrea, I know we e-mail all the time, so you both get some credit for that. Erin, you, too.
Bah. Okay, rant over. I won't single anyone else out. GLRR. Okay seriously. I'm done. COURTNEY. No really, that's it. JERRY. ... Ahem.
So, if there's anything to be taken away from this post, it's this:
