    Don't forget to approve comments

    Comments to your blog posts are moderated, meaning you have to manually approve each one (to keep out the [email protected]@ ads). So if you have a comment showing the icon of a little green person with a red X over their mouth, that means no one can see that comment unless you approve it.

    Just check the box next to the icon and either approve it or delete it (for spam).
