Speaking of your book, I loved it! Ok, I'm only about 1 chapter away from finishing it but it was great and I recommend it (you said you'd be grateful for a review via's comin'). PS. Enjoy your time in Los Angeles.

Hey Paul, Congratulations on the new project with Wiley! I'm sure it's going to turn out great!

Hmm...this is a tough one. I don't know that I could point out any one single person. I've learned from several people throughout the years. But it all started when I was a youngster (around 13) doing tradeshows and selling beanie-babies. Remember those? They were a hot item back then. Anyway, I learned a lot in those days between managing the store and working the booth at the shows with my friend Gary. He taught me a lot and well, still coaches me every now and again.

I love Typepad. Have been a user for ~ 2 years (own two blogs) and I plan on sticking with typepad for a long time. My readers however are wordpress users (most of them anyway). So requiring registration for a Typepad Profile (even if it is Free), just to get a personal gravatar is a barrier to conversation. Most of them won't get a Typepad Profile. It's like blogs that require registration to comment. In most cases it's a barrier to conversation and I opt to not comment instead. Then again, who cares about the personal photo right? Well, think of it like this. What if you and I were the only ones who had a Typepad Profile (and uploaded a personal photo) here on this thread. How silly would it look if only our photos registered and everyone else's was just a generic pic. That's just weird to me. Don't you think? Or am I being totally ridiculous? You can be honest. I can take it :-) Thanks again Ginevra for caring!

Hey Ginevra, I appreciate you following up with me (both here and on my blog)! I didn't want you to think I forgot to follow up with you... Will have that email over midweek to discuss one of the things that was concerning me.

I have a lot of readers who are not on Typepad. When they leave a comment (with the new Typepad Connect Features installed) a generic photo is left rather than the one that they might otherwise have with their gravatar account. It's complicated to require them to register a Typepad Profile (even if it is free); their own personal feedback not mine. In fact, one person said: "I sign up for a lot of things. But I wouldn't sign up for a profile there just get my mug on it. It would be great if it just worked and wasn't complicated." Thoughts? I like Typepad. I really do! But I'm not going to require a passport just to leave your profile shot on there. I'd rather delete that feature all together (it's less complicated that way) as much as I like it. My wordpress readers should be able to just comment and have their personal gravatar photo show up. Please?! Pretty please!
