Getting comments from you is really important to us. We want your ideas, your recipes, your anecdotes, your feedback -- and most of all, we want to know what you're interested in.
Frankly, we've been a little frustrated that more of you don't comment more often. Maybe this recent note from a reader holds a clue:
"A novice finds your comment section interesting and difficult to locate. Might be viewed more if others aren't having the same problem."
We're the first to admit we're novices, too. Neither of us had much experience with the Internet before we started this blog last year, except for surfing the Web and sending email.
We thought it was best to start with Google's Blogger platform because it's so widely used and designed for people like us who aren't Web designers. Mostly, it's worked very well -- but the "comment" setup has frustrated us as well as some of you.
I guess you were supposed to know that clicking on the word "comments" at the bottom of each post would give you a form for adding your own as well as reading comments posted by others.
We finally figured out how to change that to "Make a comment here!" But apparently, that's not good enough.
For now, we're stumped. But we'll keep on looking for ways to make commenting easier and clearer. We're open to suggestions and truly appreciate your advice.
Meanwhile, please click on "Make a comment here!" and join the conversation around our kitchen table.
