While I do appreciate forum users utilizing this board to ask questions, always remember to pay a visit to Atticus’ site and drop a comment there too.
It’s a different website. It requires another account made there.
It doesn’t require any sort of account. Comments can be left anonymously or under a name, but an account is a completely separate and optional thing that just gives your text box a green border and allows you to have a small profile. Posting comments on the blog or otherwise is completely unrestricted (outside captcha type security)
So don’t be afraid to use both platforms if you’d like. I tend to check on the activity of my own blog more frequently than I do here. But I appreciate feed back from all sources.
