Blogging PSA

I’m not sure if others are having trouble with this but for the past few weeks, I’ve been unable to comment on blogs that have the “embedded below post” format for commenting. It has been driving me nutso when I want to leave some comment love for my blogging bestie’s and I can’t. I’ve tried to track down as many of you as I can individually when I’ve discovered that I can’t comment but I figured this might work, too.

If that’s the format you have set up for your comments, would you pretty pretty pretty please take a second and go change it? I want to leave comments! I really, really do. I haven’t been ignoring you.

Here’s what you need to do:

Sign into dashboard. Click ‘Settings’. Click ‘Comments’. The third setting down says ‘Comment Placement Form’. Be sure that one of the first two options are selected. Full page or pop-up window. None of that embedded below post junk, mkay?

Thanks, my friends.

I was having this problem as well and a fellow blogger told me how to fix it. Delete your temporary internet files and cookies. Sign out of blogger and uncheck the box that keeps you signed in all the time. The next time you sign in and then go to the blog you are having issues with it should be fixed. Now before I signed back in I rebooted my computer just for another clearing of the system. My blog friend got this info from blogger when she contacted tech support.

Hope that will work for you.

But I do agree ... the pop up box is much better!
