As you all know, Heinz Chapel Choir member Tim Parenti has been tearing up the blogosphere with his amazing posts about the China tour. I've talked to a lot of people who are very excited about Tim's blog entries and the tour, but express some hesitancy to actually leave a comment, so I thought I'd share a little trick that might increase your comfort level, especially if you are new to the blogosphere. Use a nickname.
