    Heather,

    To reduce the spamming on your blog, try implementing a "nofollow" tag – many spammers spam to increase their search engine rankings (more links to their site = higher ranking.) The "nofollow" tag may not immediately reduce spamming, but it is a step in the right direction to reduce spamming in the long run. (Implement for the future!)

    Here’s a link to more info:

    Why not use a spamfilter?, so the good blogs can benefit each other.
