hmmm...awhile ago i received a few emails asking if i could change my preferences for the comment area and let everyone post. i didnt even know that button existed, and i didnt know that most of you couldnt post here for a long long time! i fixed it a couple months ago but yesterday i got an email "erin i wish i could post a comment on your blog"...well you can! maybe some people just havent re-tried it since they knew it never used to work. but it works now!
