We're taking a break in our regularly schedule program to bring you a little "how to" blog ;)
I've gotten quite a few emails and facebook messages recently from some of my faithful readers about being unable to post comments on this blog. I hate that you guys are having trouble, so I thought I'd see if I could point out a few things that might help you!
I know this blog is different from my old blog, and the comment forum may seem a little confusing. So, when you want to post a comment, simply scroll down to the bottom of the blog post. You will see some words in orange at the very bottom that will say "3 comments" or "0 comments" etc. Just click on those.
Now you will see a box appear that looks like this:
This is where you will type your comment. It can be as short or as long as you'd like! When you get ready to post your comment, you will need to choose your "profile" to post from. So just click on the drop- down menu where it says "comment as"....
And you'll see all your options! Now, if you don't know what any of the first options are (Google Account (which is your gmail or blogspot info), LiveJournal, WordPress, TypePad, AIM, or OPENID) then just don't worry about them (b/c you probably don't have any of those profiles!) You can simply choose one of the last two options: NAME/URL or ANONYMOUS.
For NAME/URL it will give you a place to write your name and your URL (which is the link to your website, blog, etc). If you don't have a blog or website, you can simply choose ANONYMOUS. I will just ask that you please, please list your name (first and last) so that I know who is commenting (other wise I won't know which "Sarah" or "John" or "Jessica" it is! :)
After that, all you have to do is click POST COMMENT and TA-DA! You're done!
I hope that helps any of you who've been having trouble. Sorry I haven't posted these instructions before - I know all those "profile options" can be confusing. Hope to hear from some of you soon - I sure do miss your comments!
