The only frustrating part about it has been that it’s difficult to have much of a dialogue between you and me and between you and the other commenters.
I think the Smithellaneous readers have turned into a wonderful community of long distance friends but I think a different comment format could take it an even better place.
And so? I am very excited to let you know that in the next few hours, a new commenting system will be installed here on Smithellaneous. It will allow me to easily respond to each individual comment (each comment thread will be hooked together) and it will also allow you all to interact with each other and respond to what they have to say.
I’ve been wanting to do this for about a year now because I’ve seen the system on other blogs and absolutely loved it. However, I have tried to install it several times on my own and run up against a lack of sufficient technical knowledge wall every single time. I finally got smart and contacted a blog designed to install it for me, which she will be doing within the next day.The only (small, teeny, tiny) thing you will have to do to switch over is to take about 45 seconds and create a user account. And then? You’ll be good to go.
I can’t tell you pumped I am about this chance to turn a largely one-way conversation into a multi-person, multi-city, multi-state, multi-country conversation
Welcome to the New Smithellaneous Commenting Era! I’m glad you’re here!
I’ll close out with a few pictures I took this morning of an area next door to downtown Manteo.
