 It is archived and it permits comments.

site in the Roller aggregation.  (I forget the correct name for that.)

Partially due to my efforts to cross-promote.  For example, the blog
post on the forum migration was linked to on a Twitter tweet, and then
retweeted 7 times.  That brought a reach of over 2000 users.  I can
also see (thank you, that from Twitter it was posted onto
Facebook and then shared further.

Again, we can diddle with Roller all we want, but unless you have a
connection to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ almost no one is going to
see our posts.  Think of Roller as a publication platform, but don't
expect that it generates its own audience.
