I wish there was an easy way to reply to comments on blogger, like there is on LJ! I suppose you could just comment after the first comment?? (Yes, I've been on blogger for years but still don't have it completely figured out....)
My status bar now:
10000 / 30000 words. 33% done!
(If I keep going like this, I'll surpass my goal. Yay! Now if only some of what I write turns out to be any good. :P)
