Comments, please!

I have never claimed to know much about technology. At least not in the last 10 or so years. Would you believe when I was in college I actually had a job fixing SDSU faculty computers? I could switch out a hard drive or replace a power supply lickety split!

Now.....not so much!

(More importantly, would you believe it's been 10 years since I was in college!?! Yikes!! Comments about how I don't look that old would be appreciated ;) )

These days, I feel pretty good if I can manage to Snapchat on my iPhone or change my cover photo on Facebook. Most of the time I have more important things to worry about. Actually all the time.

But, I really am totally bummed that I missed this. See that little green circle up there? That lets me regulate who comments on my blog, and up until now, it had been set to "Registered User" which is why it has been asking people to sign up for Blogger before commenting, therefore not allowing some of my FAVORITE people to comment! Ugh. I had no idea you could change it, until I though "It's pretty stupid that non-blogger users can't comment. I bet there's a way to change that," and a 2 second Google search revealed that this is something every Blogger user should know.

So, I changed it. You should be able to comment now! And please do, because comments make me feel special, and I'm not even kidding. 

Except if you make mean comments....then I'll just delete them, because like I said, I have more important things to worry about ;)


  1. I just realized this about my blog too a few weeks ago! Almost immediately after I changed it I started getting anonymous/unregistered user comments (thankfully nice ones). I do a little happy dance every time I see I have a comment now (which my husband finds quite comical... and probably a bit pathetic ;) Anyway, I have started commenting on blogs- which I never bothered to do before- hoping it makes someone else's day like it does mine :) Just nice to know someone's reading, right?

    1. Exactly! It's the small things ;) Sometimes I see I've had several hundred views and NO comments and I always think - everyone must get to my blog by accident and never find it interesting enough to comment on!
