A couple of people asked about how to follow the new blog. I hope this helps those of you who are having trouble. Tuesday doesn't count, though, because I messed up the publishing on that one!
Following the blog is easy. If you use Google Reader, you copy the web address and post it into your Google Reader. If you read blogs through the dashboard on Blogger, you just copy the web address, look at the bottom of the box and click on the "add" button. You can paste the website address in the pop up box and still follow the blog through your blogger dashboard.
Leaving comments on the blog is easy. The first time you comment, it will ask you for your user name and e-mail address. It also asks for your website address, but entering that is optional. You'll be asked if you'd like to add a Gravatar. This is simply an avatar that follows you to other Gravatar-enabled websites and is linked to your e-mail address. If you already have one with Wordpress, it should show up on the blog. You don't need to have one to post on the blog by any means. It's a simple process, however, if you're interested in adding one.
If you have any other questions for us, please don't hesitate to ask. We want to make the transition go seamlessly and we very much still want to see our blog friends comment on the new site.
