Holy crap! I just discovered that in order for a comment to appear, I have to accept it by opening up a separate tab ("moderate comments") on my blogger account! Damn, sorry to those of you who left comments without a response! I had no idea people were even commenting! I appreciate all of your comments, critiques, suggestions, opinions, etc. and always welcome them! And thanks to Angel for inadvertantly making me aware that they were not showing up! I will respond to them in the following days and make a greater effort to be more observant for christ's sake...once again, apologies. And thanks!
