A Love-Hate Thing

Computers drive me crazy sometimes. And yet I don’t think I’d be a writer without them. I realize there are benefits to writing long-hand, but revisions would become a nightmare. I would get writer’s cramp for sure! Yes, I’m thankful for the dang things. I just hate learning how to fix things the hard way.
                 
Current problem: I can’t comment on my own blog and some other (but not all) blogs. It’s been reported that some haven’t been able to comment on mine but a few comments have appeared. I am anonymous! What’s the deal? Anybody have ideas for me? We tried clearing the history cache without seeing a change. Help!

I do it all-- computer (laptop for me thanks, never a desktop), pens and paper, notebooks-- and in the early years, of course a typewriter!

I know how you feel about computers. What a pain, and yet what would I do without them? Try changing your comments to a pop-up window. I've heard that solves the commenting problem. It's on your dashboard under your blog title, settings: commenting. Hope that helps!

Okay, this is the test to see if Angie's help does the trick. If you see this as my name instead of anonymous, Angie, I might have to name a character after you! Thanks!

Hey Renae - I'm running out to my son's BBall game, but before I go, I wanted to tell you that I awarded you THE IRRESISTIBLY SWEET BLOG AWARD! Yay Renae! You are so Wonderful! You can check out what to do on my blog. :)

I'm able to comment (if this prints, that is). If things don't get better, I hear if you delete all your cookies it can fix things.

Leave the ones in your cupboard alone. ;)

Thanks for your comments!

Rebecca said...

Hooray! Looks like it's fixed!

I just enabled multiple sign-ins. I'm hoping I won't regret that!

(Glad someone else mentioned the cookies. I should have mentioned that along with the cache.)

No problems commenting for me. Blogger had issues with my blog a few weeks ago, but I think - hope - that's all in the past.

Computers drive me nuts! Loved getting one comment for all the entries to the watched blog hop contest. Good Luck!

Did you get the comment thing fixed? I don't know what's going on, but it's happened to a lot of blogs. Mine too.

I wrote my first book longhand. I don't know how anyone revised, etc. w/out computers.

A whole book in longhand! Wow, Tamara. You rock!
