Broken Links?

If you click on a link in a page or post and receive an error, the old blog started with www.gettingpastyourbreakup.com/gettingpastyourpast/page or post name.  THIS blog does not have the /gettingpastyourpast subdirectory so if you just take that out (to make it www.gettingpastyourbreakup.com/page or post name), it should work.
