A message to my readers

Hello friends, 
I am just here to share a few thoughts with you today. Hope you don't mind if a card is missing in this post. 

Truth is, there's something I've been having difficulty with, and I'm sharing it in hopes that you will understand and maybe even know how to help me figure it out. 

A couple years ago, I thought I would stop blogging. I've been at this since 2007, after all. And I did "end" my blog at typepad with a fond farewell. 

I found that I just missed being part of the sharing and caring community of stampers.  A couple of months later I reopened my blog again and I've really loved sharing with you all here. 

Here's my problem: for some reason, I find myself UNABLE to leave comments at most of your blogs.

I don't know why this has happened but I've tried fixes that recommend clearing the cookies, clearing the cache, checking filters, reading of similar problems on the google forums etc. None of these have helped. For so many of you that leave comments on my blog, when I write a comment on yours it either disappears when I submit it, or I try to click on the photos to verify that I am not a robot and they just keep going on and on and on. 

I would really like to know if anyone has a good suggestion for how to fix this?  You can email me at (use the @ sign) if you have an idea to share. 

Sharing is what I love the most about blogging, and for so many of you, especially fellow fans of PTI, I am not able to reciprocate by leaving a comment on your blogs. 

Hope you understand and know that I am working on it! I really hope I can get this resolved. 

I've always been much more crazy about stamping and much less fond of techie stuff, lol! Hanging in there and wishing you a good day~

There was a lot of trouble with this in the recent past. Any Blogger blog that used embedded comments was difficult or impossible for another blogger to comment on. I noticed it was never a problem with the pop up comment box. A lot of bloggers switched, word got passed around and things improved. One of my blogger friends has recently started having the same problem again and AGAIN she found it was with embedded comments. Do you notice this? You have to clear cookies for EVERY comment! I don't seem to have a problem commenting on your blog, yet this comment box appears to be embedded. Also, I hear Google + is going away. That's all I know on the subject and it's not much. I know how frustrating this is, Cindy.

It could be browser related. I know that in the past Internet Explorer and anything blogger related DO NOT get along. I use Chrome for my browser and don't have any issues leaving comments. If you're not using Chrome I highly recommend switching to it. It's the best IMHO.

Cindy, I'm so glad you have written this post. I have been having the same problem for some time now. I have queried the Blogger folks and have gotten no answers as of this time. I would say, let me know if you learn anything and I'll do the same, but I'm not even sure you'll get this one. Maybe I'll try Chrome as Jen has suggested. It is very frustrating and time consuming. I've loved visiting you blog, lots of lovely cards. I'll be back again soon! Merry Christmas!
