  1. Testing – one, two three! . . .

    I was on blogspot and switched back to WP (used to be spaces live).

    Hmm, I wonder if this is why commenting is down on my blog, too — going to see if this one takes!

    (Hey – I see on the sidebar of GoodReads my novel Sweetie is there! 😀 by Michelle Davidson Argyle – hope she liked it :-D)


    1. I’m glad you got a comment through, Kat. 🙂 It will be no fun if I have no comments to reply to. 😦

      Actually, that’s MY Goodreads shelf in the sidebar. The first book was probably highlighted so it read “by Michelle Davidson Argyle” below. And I certainly DID like Sweetie!


  2. I’ll give this a try through Twitter, which is better than nothing….
    I had a feeling the comment mishap wasn’t a mishap. I’m sorry to hear it may be permanent. Are you hosted through WordPress? I wonder, if you move your website to another host (like GoDaddy) but keep the WordPress layout, if commenting will work better?


    1. Yes, I’m hosted through WordPress, Christi. I don’t know if self-hosted blogs are having this problem or not. I’ll check on that. I’ve considered self-hosting several times, but right now, I can’t afford it. Plus, I’m spoiled by some of the Comments I’ve Made feature of the WP Dashboard.


  3. They certainly don’t make it easy. I’ve had trouble commenting on both Blogger and WordPress. I don’t think one is particularly better than the other.
    I’ve heard a ton of bad stuff about Godaddy too.

    BTW: it took three tries to get this comment to post. 🙂 Good thing I copies it before I tried.


    1. I’m sorry you had to go to so much trouble, Dana, … and you’re a WP blogger!

      I used to have two sites hosted through GoDaddy, but had to let them go this past year. I had no problems with them, though I don’t think they were the cheapest hosting site around.


  4. Linda, Blogger had a commenting problem as well a few months ago. In fact, it probably still does, but there is an easy way around it. When you log onto Blogger, make sure the field “Stay signed in” at the sign in screen is left unmarked. That seems to take care of it. At least, I haven’t had any problems anymore so far. All these sites, however, have issues. And it takes an inordinate amount of time to switch blogs.


    1. Thanks for the link, David, but that workaround won’t work for this theme because it doesn’t have the option of using footer widgets. Twenty Eleven did, but it didn’t allow sidebars on post pages. I’m back to the game of finding which theme comes closest to doing what I want. 😕


  5. Annoying, isn’t it. I am always logged in to WP, and whenever I am not, I have this problem. I too have thought of moving my blog elsewhere, but I am used to WP, so here it remains.

    P.S Still reading your gorgeous Brevity. You’re an excellent writer.


    1. Yes, I’m always logged in too, Alannah. I had another email this morning from a WP blogger who can’t comment on another WP blog, so yes, annoying it is.

      Thank you for the complements on the blog and the book. 🙂
