Comment issues

I spent much of a rainy Sunday afternoon browsing other cancer blogs.  I was really amazed at the breadth and scope of the dialogue, at the quality of writing, and perhaps most at the grand sense of humor that I found.  I left messages at most of them as well as an invitation to visit this site.  I was truly excited then by the highest turnout yet for my blog – 62 visits!

I did find out though that there was trouble with my software or server.  It is not possible to view my pages containing information about me, my disease, and this site.  Nor does it seem possible to view individual posts and leave comments.  Although with this site you need to register first with WordPress by clicking the “Register” button in the “Meta” section in the right column.  When I decided to host this blog, my first, I don’t think I knew what I was getting into technically. I use WordPress software, Fetch FTP software, and Laughing Squid in San Francisco as my server.  I am in the center of the country in Indianapolis. I will be working on these technical issues today (after my two granddaughters get picked up later).

In the meantime please feel free to contact me if you like at
