Anyone who blogs knows we do it purely for the validation to our rather fragile egos. Positive comments reassure us that we are good enough, smart enough, and doggone, it, people like us! So imagine how crushed I was when I had gotten no comments at all on last night’s rather ok blog post! Granted it had only been a few hours, but I know I have one or two fellow insomniac friends out there who can be counted on for a back-patting when it’s deserved.
What was wrong?? Does no one like me anymore? Have I been banished to the bottom of everyone’s link lists??
No, turns out yours truly installed a new comment spam filter that rejected everyone who even thought about leaving a comment. The spam had gotten really bad lately, and I installed a plugin I thought would help. I went to test it earlier after crying in my Cheerios over the lack of comments, and I couldn’t even post a comment myself. Ooops! Sorry bout that!
Now give me a kiss and tell me how much you missed me.
