When I first starting writing Life, Love, and Food, I never dreamed that anyone else would actually read my words. Never. It was beyond comprehension that people might actually want to visit, say hello, ask questions, and offer their own stories. I am pleasantly surprised every time I find a new comment. I thought I had been diligent about responding. I found, however, that there were some unnoticed comments lurking in the back pages of this blog. Today, I read and responded to all of them! Whew. If you were disappointed because I didn't write back to you, hopefully if you look again, you will get the attention that you deserve, dear reader.
I really want this blog to be an open forum for discussing all things life, love, and food (especially that last part). In the spirit of this dream, I have adjusted the comment options to allow all readers, Blogger members or not, to leave comments. I have faith that the remarks will be worthy of publishing without my screening them, so unless I find otherwise, I will leave the comments as a (kind and considerate) free-for-all. For all my friends (aka Anne!) who like to e-mail me comments instead of posting them, perhaps you might consider making your remarks public? (No pressure, Anne. I love your e-mails!) I have also adjusted the comments so that I will be notified by e-mail about new comments, so if new comments show up on old posts, I'll know and can read them easily.
Hurray for blogging! I love it. Happy reading and happy cooking, everyone! Drop by to say hello whenever you like; I'll be here waiting for you.
