Debra Fetterly at Breathe Lighter e-mailed me this morning. She’s a regular reader and commenter on my blog, but I hadn’t heard from her in several days. I’m glad she reached out, because she was trapped in spam.
We bloggers have been tearing our hair for more than a month now over changes WordPress has made to commenting. Given that Debra is a dedicated blogger and a regular commenter, and she still ended up in my spam folder, I wanted to alert others to the possibility that a regular reader or several may have disappeared through no fault of their own.
If any of you have found other ways to deal with the WordPress commenting issues, or have noticed any other glitches, please share them here in a comment.
In other news, meet my muse for my new novel. It’s name is Merry.
No, the book isn’t about voodoo, but I do have a voodoo question. The white pin is for good luck, the black pin for bad. Should I remove the black pin and throw it away to have nothing but good luck on this project? Save it for the time when I’m submitting my finished manuscript and want to hex agents who reject me? Leave it where it is?
What would you do, Dear Reader?
