That feels better - I needed to get that out!
Are you having issues with blogger?
I am...
It seems that people can't comment on my blog.
So I did a little bit of research...

I often head off to blog posts through Google reader. That takes me straight to the individual post on each blog, where I find a link that says  post a comment...or a box to write in...which makes it really easy to post a comment!!!!


However, I peeked around a few blogs and I couldn't find the words "post a comment" at the end of any of their posts.
On most blogs, at the end of the post,  there is a line that says:
...x number of commenters/lovelies/chatters/peekers said...
In order to see the comments or to actually write a comment, I have to click on that line/link and get taken to a comment box, or maybe a separate page, where I can comment to my hearts content!
How confusing is that? 

  • Go to the blog and you have to work out how to comment, 
  • or go to the individual post and it's easy as pie...

I'm only moaning because this is the first time I have noticed that peculiarity. I think it is something to do with all the "improvements" that are being introduced. Plus I've been feeling a bit "nelly-no friends" *sob* *sob*

So please Blogger - get your act together.
Just standardise the way to comment on blog posts - whether they are viewed on the whole blog or as a separate post...
....or I might just jump ship (can you hear them trembling in their boots at that threat? No, me neither)...

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...
I hope you can find out how to leave a comment!

  1. I've been trying to comment to no avail. I keep getting a google log in screen then go round in circles from there. So unless I try anonymous...

  5. I keep getting logged out of Google anything. It is really annoying. Come on Google! You used to be awesome! Get your act together.

    I am feeling the lack of comments myself, although it is probably more normal than I would like to think. :) I still love your blog!

  6. I haven't had a problem recently with blogger since I stopped doing a log in with the tick box checked to stay logged in.. Good luck - it's very frustrating...

  7. It's been driving me batty lately too. I've actually opened a wordpress blogging account. Just a bit nervous about making the move.

  9. Umm, hello, is this working?
    Sometime blogger shuts me out for no reason, won't upload photos, can't leave comments etc.
    Was life easier without all these "technological advances?"
    Hmmm...

  10. Nice rant... I've been feeling the same and it just gets way too confusing for a simple crafter like me. On the plus side I seem to be able to comment on your blog again. I keep thinking people will think I'm ignoring them x

  11. Hmmm...I think everyone is experiencing some issues. Every time I get used to the blogger setup, there is another change. I logged on together to find yet another setup. Hope things work out for you real soon.

  12. Right there with ya! Sometimes I have to preview & post like 17 (ok, a slight exaggeration there, it's probably really only 13 times)times before I can get the stupid comment posted. I *have* learned that if it makes you continually sign in & then you end up as anon, if you UNcheck the "remember me" box, it'll take your google logon. Although, as has been mentioned, then you are logged outta google. piece o'crap, I say!
