trouble commenting?

A couple of readers have mentioned to me that they have had trouble commenting on my blog.  I'd like to give you a brief explanation of what you need to do if you would like to post a comment.  Half the fun of blogging is hearing from you, so I'd hate for you to run into technical problems!

Here's what you do:
--If you will be using your Google, Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal, TypePad, AIM or OpenID account, make sure you are logged into that account before attempting to post a comment (you can do this in a separate window).  Then Blogger will recognize your account.  If you don’t have any of these accounts, no worries!  You can still post a comment (see below).
--Underneath the post, you will see in red print “0 comments” or “2 comments” or however many there are currently.  Click on this link.
--A form labeled “Post a Comment” should appear below the post.
--Select the type of account you will be commenting through in the drop-down box labeled “Comment as" (note, this is different from logging into your account).
--If you are not using one of the account types listed in the first step, you can choose “Name/URL.”  Click on this option in the drop-down box and a pop-up form will appear.  Type your name as you would like it to appear on your comment and add your website under “URL.” 
--The easiest option: If you would simply like to leave a comment without using an account type or typing in your URL, select “Anonymous” in the drop-down box.  After you type your comment in the comment box, simply type your name at the end.
--After typing your comment in the comment box, click “Post Comment” (below the comment form box). 
--Your comment is posted!

If you continue to have problems posting comments, please shoot me a quick email:

Thanks!  Look forward to hearing from you all!


  1. Thanks! Lookee Lookee! It works! I also forwarded your "how to..." info on to a friend that was having trouble posting a comment. You are sooooo good at explaining how to do things on blogs and facebook!

  2. Thanks! Would this be my mother? You gotta sign your name or I won't know who you are.;-)
