Before you read these directions, I must confess that I have had trouble from time to time posting on various blogs, and that I have lost a lot of my "prose" to cyberspace. Now, I try to remember to create my post in my Pages (I have a Mac) but would use Word if I had a PC. Sometimes I actually create a comment in my MAIL Program and email it to myself as the spell check is automatic and spelling is not my strongest asset. (Another good reason to create a comment somewhere else, although most posting fields can be previewed for spelling.)
Then I copy what I have written into the "post field" on a given blog, and if it does not show up, or if it disappears, at least I have my text. Having said this, I don't want to scare you away from weighing in on my blog, so, without further ado, here are the directions:
1. Below every blog entry this (pictured below) is what appears:
4. After clicking on “Post Comment”, the blogger system displays a Word Verification screen which requires the Commenter to enter the characters of the displayed, random word.
6. Please note that after you have done these things, a message appears which says, "Your comment will be visible after approval." All this means is that it will be posted within 24 hours.
P.S. The Post a Comment field that you see at the bottom of this page refers to this page only, so, if you have questions still about commenting in general, please feel free to ask, but after reading these directions, you may click the back arrow on your screen to get back to The Last Leaf Gardener Blog Comment field that you left to come here as pictured below:
