    Looks good!

    I have one request: For comments, would you consider either making the email address not required or giving the option to hide it from the public?

    I think emails are displayed if no URL is given.

    Well the blog I use to promote my environmental chemistry site is new and I don't even know if anyone has ever visited it, but I bet the SE's do or will soon enough, so I went a little off topic in my blog and put a plug in for your new blog. I hope others will do the same. (nudge nudge)

    Those are some small links on the left side of WebsitePublisher.

    Hard to see the new blog link.

    I dont get serious traffic, but I get about 400 uniques a day and the site is geared towards web developers so hopefully something can come from it.

    I plan on adding a tab to the top of the site for the blog, so it'll be visible from the forums and there'll be a bigger link.

    As for the left menu being small... yes, it is... but this site is about the content not the design and so I kinda like the minimalistic feel.

    Guess I should put it in my blog, although I haven't blogged in over a month.

    Looking good though, I'll bookmark it for my morning daily reads.

    Once my vaporware-so-far RSS feed site thingy is done (*cough, cough*), I'll definitely be adding this one to my subscriptions.

    Which post? I tend to type mine in Word so I don't make spelling mistakes, then I give them a once over for grammar.

    The error I saw before I posted to proofread was in the second sentence of your first post:

    Actually no, thats not true, this blog will be better.
    I figured that Word would catch that. OO does for me. Also, since I'm a grammar stickler you should spell out numbers as well. Last, remember to use commas when needed.
