PS. Why the comment moderation? Have you been having problems?
 
Thanks DS, I'll add Idaho Rivers to the list.

I use comment moderation because people have tried to spam my blog a couple of times. In addition, when I ask somebody to link to my blog I can guarantee that off-topic or inappropriate content will never be permitted on my blog.
