Odds and Ends

Just a quick note that I've turned on the word verification for comments, just for a few days. I've been getting spam comments that are becoming a nuisance, and I hope that by turning this on for a little while, it might cut back on them. I know what a pain it is to have to type those funky "words" in each time you leave a comment, but I hope this doesn't have to be a regular part of my blog.

And in other news, I got my ticket to BlogHer '10 in NYC! It nearly drained out my PayPal account, but since the funds in there were all procured through blog ads and graphics work, I'm happy that this blog actually paid for my ticket. I can't wait to hang out with my roomie again, like last year. Now for the hotel and bus fare....

Are you going to BlogHer? I'd love to meet up with you if you are!

  2. Booo - Sorry about the spammers. I got a couple a while back and I immediately deleted them. Jerks! ;)

    How nice that you're all set for BlogHer! I wish I could say I was going this year, but it's not looking promising. I might just have to settle for living vicariously through my blog friends until next year ;)

    Isn't that weird, I have been starting to get some spam lately too.

  9. I understand about the verification. I"ve been getting a few spam too since I tok off no follow thing etc.

    I might have to do that a bit too but not regularly as I can't stand captcha.
