I just spent five hours of my life trying to make threaded comments and emailed replies work on the blog and finally! It works. I used the WordPress Thread Comment Plugin and my clever boyfriend helped me rewrite the CSS and I feel a little smarter now than I did this morning. Hurrah! Anyone can reply to any comment, but only my replies are emailed to the commenter (I thought this was safest so nobody gets spammed or anything nasty).
There are a few other blog things I’m working on, but I’ll tell you about those when they’re done!
