First Birthday!

PS I don't know if you know you have word verification switched on, just to let you know that if you have word verification switched on in the future the The Dream team may not be able to leave you a comment (you might not even know you have it switched on)
It is so easy to switch off and if you us comment moderation you can still monitor your comments, and if you switch off word verification you will get lots more comments from your readers
Heres what to do if you don't already know;
Click customize
Then click the settings tab
Then click comments , scroll down to "Show word verification for comments?" and just clock "No"
At this point if you want to turn on "Comment moderation" you can just fill in this section with your email address etc on the same page, personally I don't have this on either and I don't get any problems
I hope you don't mind me saying this its just that word verification slows us all up and take the fun out of blogging
Hugs Susie xx
