The first thing you need to know is that comments on this blog are handled by the Intense Debate commenting system. In order to leave comments, you will need to sign up for a free Intense Debate account. Lots of blogs use Intense Debate for comments, and there are many benefits of doing so.
Once you have your Intense Debate account, come back here and find the post you'd like to comment on. At the bottom of the post, you'll see "COMMENTS (# of comments left so far)." When you click on that link, you'll be asked to login using your Intense Debate username and password. Now you're in and can comment at will.
When you look at a post that already has several comments, you'll notice that you can either scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and leave a comment in the "Post new comment" box if you want to address the post itself, or you can use the "reply" button that follows each comment to reply directly to that comment. This makes it easy for readers to interact with each other.
I hope this helps, and we're looking forward to hearing from you.
