If you are having problems getting your comments to post, avoid any grin tags like these: :-> because they are interpreted as html and won't be accepted in the comments field. If you still can't get your comment to post, and you'd like to for the contest, send it to me at tjb @ tjbennett . com and I will post it for you. Sorry for the trouble!
UPDATE 9/4/05: If you don't have third party cookies enabled, apparently you will have trouble leaving a comment. See the link in the comment under this post from the helpful Blooger forum dude. Thanks, helpful dude.
