When I revamped the Weaving in Beauty website earlier this year, I set it up so that only site members could comment on the articles and pages. Although we receive 1500+ visits per month there aren’t that many comments, so I’ve eliminated the need to register and anyone can post a comment subject to moderation. I do have to manage some spam comments, but there are packages that identify this cyber flotsam pretty effectively. Unfortunately, some spammers try to get around this by registering as members on the site, so I am eliminating the registration and member login links immediately since you don’t need these to access any part of the site. If you’d like to post an article, you will need to be registered and I’ll do that on an individual basis if you contact me and discuss the content you’d like to add.
Most people who have registered did that because they wanted to know when the site is updated. The fast answer is that I try to write a post each day, but sometimes life gets in the way. If you’d like to know for sure when I’ve published something new or made a change, there are two ways to do that. You can register to receive an email notice of changes or you can subscribe to our RSS feed.
If you’ve already registered, you’ll automatically receive the email notices, and you can cancel those at any time.
Since you had to read through all of this administrivia, the least I can do is give you a nice picture to make up for it! Here’s a detail of an 1880’s blanket that was brought in for appraisal at the Southwest Traders Rendezvous last weekend. Rumor has it that will be in the upcoming Friends of Hubbell Auction this Saturday. Stay tuned….
