So, this week I made the long-overdue move of changing my Blogger URL to bostonbibliophile.blogspot.com. I won't go into the reasons why but I felt like I needed to claim that little bit of internet real estate for myself since it is the name under which I "do business". Anyway I don't know what effect that has had on my subscribers, so those of you who subscribe to or bookmark the site through Google or by URL might want to check to make sure your subscriptions still work. Of course, if your subscription does not work you are likely not going to see this message. So then I guess we're all stuck.
Also, I've been hearing a lot of folks having trouble with the Captcha word verification. I really am sorry about this. I don't know what to do about it. I have no control over the Captchas that Blogger chooses; Captcha drives me crazy too when I visit blogs. What I do when presented with a Captcha I can't read is refresh a couple of times until I get one that's clear enough to try.
I really don't want to have to moderate comments to keep out spam, and Captcha is the best spam deterrent I've found. If it's too much and you're not able to comment, I'm sorry, but I hope you'll read anyway. I really appreciate all of you and all of your comments and I wish I had a better solution to this for you.
