Comments are now open
~ 22 March 2004 ~
I’m nervous. Really nervous. The butterflies in my stomach aren’t fluttering; they’re raging like a swarm of bees.
Because this is my first post with comments turned on. I finally managed to install, configure, and faceplate my MovableType weblog. Please add my brand spankin’ new XML RSS 2.0 feed to your preferred RSS news reader. (XML RSS 1.0 is not available due to the difficulties it has with the script cap code in each of my headlines.)
I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, waiting excitedly to see the comments you’ll post. But I also feel like the kid who knows the school bully is waiting for him just after the day’s classes end, worried anxiously about what you’ll do and say—if anything at all.
On that multifarious note, please be gentle, as this is my first “live” post. But above all, be honest.
