Hiccups and Updates

So, this week I made the long-overdue move of changing my Blogger URL to 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.

Seems like the blogspot link only redirects to So RSS still working just fine.

Joyita, thanks for letting me know :-)

My subscription still works on my sidebar! I think it was originally done through Google or GFC? But it still works, so I'm not going to mess with it on my end. Congrats on the move!

Google Reader brought me straight here, so it's all good! I don't like captcha either and think that the words are unreadable half the time. I'm not a robot, but can't prove it if I can't read the captcha! I've seen other options where you have to choose a picture to match the description, but now that I'm looking for it, can't find any. :(

Anyway, I'm still here, whether captcha lets me comment or not! *waves*
