    Could you please add something: After turning off the comments, how does one get rid of the “Comments are closed.” line that gets added to the page/post…?

    Would make your article just that little extra good…!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to
    start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hi Marianne. I’m on a (not .org) setup with upgrades of a custom domain name and customized theme. Having used Drupal and other content management systems, I can’t recommend WordPress enough. It’s almost too easy.
