I am interrupting this programme for a public service announcement of sorts for my online blogging friends.
For the past couple of weeks, my ability to comment on blog posts where the host is Blogspot has been cruelly thwarted. This happens every now and again, but damn, it’s frustrating! I expect that this also happens for Blogspot bloggers who are trying to comment on WordPress. I’ve got to the point where my heart sinks a little when I open a blog to read a poem/piece of prose and see the blogspot url.
Here’s what happens. I write a comment, click on publish and the usual verification process doesn’t work. Instead, I am caught in a Groundhog Day kind of process where I click on ‘publish’ , the page refreshes and… I have to click on ‘publish’ again. Needless to say, most of the time, my comment can’t be published.
So, if you wonder where my comments are my Blogspot friends, they are probably floating around in the ether somewhere, never to be seen again.
I don’t know where the problem lies but I do hope the tech-geeks sort it out soon…
