Omigawd.... I think it's fixed. Dare I try to publish this without word verification? If it is truly fixed, it was Gatsby over at the Blogger forum, and I must go thank him. As well as hold up my end of the bargain which was to read The Great Gatsby in his honor.
Another request sent on October 14, 2008. Is that 11 requests now?
We have received your request for a review to verify that your blog is not a spam blog. Someone will look over your blog and respond to firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, I've set up a Blog Book Tours blog at WordPress, and am poised to transfer future posts, as well as the contents of this blog, over there.
