Back in mid-January, I abruptly stopped posting my reviews and writerly thoughts here. I've continued to post writing-related thoughts on http://www.anthonycardno.com/, and I've continued to post book reviews on talekyn.livejournal.com and on GoodReads and the Visual Bookshelf application on Facebook.
The reason I stopped posting here was simply because I could not for the life of me figure out how to get Blogspot to send me email notifications when someone leaves a comment on my posts, and I was inadvertently ignoring people when I failed to sign in for days on end and page back through each post. I see now that the problem was not with Blogspot but somewhere between Chair and Keyboard. I think I've got the problem fixed (and even if I don't, I see now where I can go each day to see if comments have been left).
So I will resume cross-posting book reviews and writerly thoughts here. I'd appreciate it, though, if anyone who reads this post would leave a short comment simply so I can see if my email notifications thingie is actually working.
