I appreciate so very much every time someone takes a minute to leave a comment on my blog. I don't want there to be anything to make that process more complicated for anyone. That's why I disabled word verification. I actually didn't realize that it was enabled until a reader let me know. I love leaving comments for other bloggers and am always happy when I don't have to deal with word verification. I've been seeing all over the blogosphere that I'm not alone in finding word verification quite an annoyance. If you'd like to check to see whether yours is on or off or change your settings, michele made me, has very clear, easy directions. To see them go here.
