A few months ago I had to turn off the comments on my blog because the comment counter from Radio Userland was slowing the site down too much.
Today I've turned the comments back on. Radio Userland CEO Scott Young says the speed issue has been resolved. This is Radio is good blogging software in case you want to publish your own blog on your own domain. It costs only $39.95. Their tech support has always been responsive to me. (Thanks, Lawrence!) In addition to comments, I'm going to be adding a Blog Roll soon.
