is a silver lining...and I saw it!
Many times, I have viewed the silver lining and I am blessed with each viewing but today I want to gripe, and hope against hope, you want to listen to me.
I have blogged almost four years and have been dedicated. I have entertained, sometimes shocked you and also hope I've made you laugh more than not.
I am here to complain about word verification and no-reply comment bloggers...yep, that's right, I'm complaining again. As blessed as I am, I should not, but sadly, I am human and (gasp!) we are never satisfied.
I try to make it simple for everyone to visit me, that wants to visit, that is. No word verification is used. The spam blocker in Blogger is sufficient if you don't take anonymous comments...there's a place to mark for that. If a spam slips through, you can enter your comments and block and delete the spammer. This has only happened twice with me...someone wanting to advertise...twice since they introduced spam blocker...not bad.
I enjoy, no, I absolutely love the interaction. When someone takes the time to comment, I love to answer and acknowledge that they took the time and thought to comment. I never go back to my blog post, I receive my comments through email. Easy-peasy...hit reply and have a conversation...or just say thank you for commenting. Then I head butt with no reply comment blogger!! Frustration abounds. THEN because I don't want to high-hat someone I go to their blog and make a comment about their comment. I know I make it hard on myself but if you honor me with a comment, I want to thank you. It's the right, kind, polite thing to do.
I love my followers, I love the comments, but I'm basically lazy...or work smart, not hard, which ever one you want to pick...or you can call me a whiner...it's okay...but please allow me to get through to you with email and comment easily on your blog.
That's it, I'm done. Hope I didn't make any one mad...we'll see if my followers drop. Just my side as I see it.
Life will go on with that silver lining in every cloud and, hopefully, we can make blogging less complicated for all of us.
I do acknowledge it is your choice, this is only my opinion.
