Minor Blog Issues

I want to start off by apologizing to everyone who's been cut out of posting comments by my activation of the "Google +" comments.  I didn't read carefully enough to realize that would require everyone who posted to have a G+ account.  I still can't believe they did that--it's so contrary to what a blogger wants, which is maximum engagement, that I didn't even believe it when someone first told me they'd been unable to comment. Someone please test while NOT logged into G+ and let me know if it works now!

Secondly, I have no idea how much I'll be posting through the holiday season.  I am certainly finishing up the "200 word challenge," and have regularly scheduled posts through the 23rd--which just happens to also be the last day to enter the #MGBookElves giveaway.  There will almost certainly be no post on Dec. 25--I'm sure no one is going to want to take time to read one that day!

Finally, since the end of one year and beginning of another is a time for assessing, let me know what you'd like to see more (or less!) of on this blog.  Want more author interviews?  More reviews (probably not happening--reading and reviewing the books as I do takes some serious time)?  More pearls of wisdom on the writing process (always bearing in mind that I am totally talking through my hat).  Speak, O Reader(s) and let me know!


Meanwhile, don't forget:

And a gratuitous photo of a cute small furry animal, because I can:




Oh--and I may have found a photo of Gorg the Troll in my archives:

    1. Thanks! I took that at Badlands National Park in 2005!

  2. I like your blog just the way it is. And that photo of Gorg is terrific :)

    PS Comments are now working, but Google+ refuses to believe I am logged in, and it's probably going to comlain about my wordpress one too. :sigh:

    1. Thanks! The birds give Gorg eyes I couldn't miss--yet my spouse, taking photos at the same spot, didn't see it at all.

  3. Hi! Just checking your comments for you, although, I have Google+, this looks like you are back to the regulary blogger comments and that should work fine. I like that they have added the notify me option as, I never go back to check comments unless I get an email - I visit too many blogs to keep track. I love the cute furry animal and Gorg!

    1. Thanks for checking. I'm glad it's working, and glad that the notify thingie is back--I didn't realize it was gone. I need to check the blog as not-myself more often, to see what it really works like. Mostly, I'm annoyed at Google/Blogger for setting up a bad interface, and at me for being suckered into it.

    2. P.S. I didn't ID it, but the furry thing is a pika--also featured as the letter P in "A is for Alpine" :)
