Greetings from the Romance trenches!

ROMANCE - To court or woo romantically; treat with ardor or chivalrousness; a strong fascination or enthusiasm for something. [Romance Week starts here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]

Hi everyone! I just wanted to do a quick update. As many of you know I have been having a great deal of trouble with my blog's feed. The problems have kept my blog from being sent properly to readers and many of the simple things I have in my sidebars are causing problems and slowing things down for many people viewing the blog directly. I have figured out that most of my difficulty has come from "cutting and pasting" things from other sources (Word Documents, Open Office Documents, email and this and other websites) which results in bad code being added to my feed. Apparently Blogger really only likes you to work in their editor program... at this point in time feedburner has identified more then 600 errors in my feed and because I hadn't been paying attention before it is going to take some time to sort through it all. For this reason I am going to keep my posting down to an absolute minimum, since ALL my blogging time is being consumed by my feed work.

When I get everything sorted I will be relaunching the blog and giving you a full update on the remainder of the project. It is hard to believe I am three weeks away from the conclusion of my year long Bliss project!

Romance week is happening at my house... amusingly, the Sweetie and I came home with identical bouquets of flowers for each other! I'm still working on my "big surprise" for the week.

How about you? Any good Romance happening in your world?
