No Card, Just Some Info About Commenting and Following

😖  Having trouble leaving comments on Blogger blogs?  It works, but the process is slow.  I've noticed that the problem lies with embedded comments, but the pop up window works perfectly.  Slick as a whistle.  Therefore, I've changed my comment setting to the pop up window.  If you have a Blogger blog, you might like to affect this change, as well.  If you have any tricks up your sleeve, please share.

😌  Also, I've finally managed to get the Followers widget to work on my blog.  See it there in the sidebar with pitifully few followers.  I don't know how they managed without the widget being there, but I thank them.  If you like to follow blogs in that format, it is now available.  Thank you!

😃  Other options for following this blog:  Subscribe by email, Bloglovin', or Feedly.  My favorite is Feedly and it's what I use for following my fellow bloggers.  You can see the tiny green Feedly widget in my sidebar.  Click on that or Google search "Feedly" to get yourself set up.  It's free and easy.  You can follow any blog and set them up in categories.  I've divided blogs into stamping, challenges, photography, and sketches categories.  Updates are virtually instant.  LOVE Feedly!

That's it for now.  I hope this information is useful and helpful.  I'll be back Monday with stamping.  Enjoy your day!

Thanks Leslie for posting these. I do have followers that can't leave a comment as much as they try, so I have updated for a pop up comment window, I hope that works. Great information - and I love Feedly too! Enjoy your day!

thanks for the advice. I just changed my comments setting. I'm clueless on this stuff!!

I have always used the pop-up window... but THANK YOU for addressing this problem with the sloooooowness of the comment publishing! I thought it was something I had done wrong - resorted to double-clicking!
Now I'm off to see your feathers!!

ok I changed mine which should help people posting a comment on my blog but not helping me commenting on all these other blogs LOL. Let me know if you hear or find anything else that will help speed things up. ugh! Thanks!

I was wondering about the comment thing....glad you caught it. I changed mine to pop up. Thanks!!

Ros Crawford said...

Yep, it's been a pain I can tell you - I think mine is already a pop up but it's the others that aren't. Wishing you a great day!

Hi, Leslie! I have always used that pop up window because it allows my commenters to view my cards while commenting. Sometimes my little forgetful mind can't remember what I saw - or I want to keep going back and looking at the card as I comment because there is so much to see! I have been following you via bloglovin since you activated this blog, but just bumped your google number up a bit. It's strange how some of the widgets work, and other times they don't cooperate. Thanks for the update! xxx

Thanks Leslie, altered mine to pop up box too! took me awhile to find this (not computer savvy).
Another follower for you, already a follower with bloglovin/email.
hugs Pam x

Hello Leslie and thank you so much for sharing how to fix this commenting problems. I just went to change my blog settings from EMBEDDED to POP UP WINDOW so, I hope things will run more smoothly now.
I follow you by email but I added myself to your followers list too.
I still have so much to learn about computers and their little hicups, sheeesh!! Thank goodness for kind people like you who share their findings with us less savvy folk.
Now, while trying to leave comments on the cards submitted to the challenges where I'm a Designer Team member, after I clicked the "Publish" button and waited for my comment to appear, I thought that maybe hitting the "REFRESH" button on top of the page, you know? the one that looks like a circle arrow, it helped publish the comment right away, who knows why, LOL!!
Anywho Leslie, thanks again for all the help.
Big hugs,
Maria.

Gosh, I had not even noticed you had no followers, because of no setting..I have subscribed by email for years and now I am a follower too:-) TFS the pop up window trick. It is done and I will find out if it works as soon as I hit Publish:-) TFS your tips, my friend. Hugs...

WhooHooo...It worked:-) Hugs

I wondered why it was taking so long to leave comments on so many blogs. I sure hope mine is set right. I will have to check it out. Thanks for the information. I would have had no idea how to look into this.

Darnell said...

Yay! Good post, Leslie! I'm a subscriber, but it's nice to have that little follower widget filled with smiley faces, too, so I always do both ways.

I have noticed about the slowness and thought it might be Chrome until another friend said hers was slow and she doesn't use Chrome. Thank you for sharing your discovery about it not happening with popup comment formatting!! I hope everyone switches then - and/or Blogger stops grinding words with the embedded folks!

Have a great Sunday! Hugs, Darnell

Thanks for the info. I don't have a lot of folowers or comments but I was able fo find the pop up and selected it. Thanks!

Conniecrafter said...

I believe mine is pop up comments. I follow you both by email and Bloglovin, I had not heard of Feedly before.

Susie said...

Leslie, can I come stay for a weekend and you can help me with my blog *laughing* My blog is so pathetic it's a wonder I have visitors -- wait a minute, I only have one - you! I seriously need help, so I'm going to check out your tips.

Melanie MacKenzie said...

Thanks for all this info Leslie. I never have a problem leaving a comment on your blog but I do not seem to be able to comment on any Typepad blogs. Anybody else have this problem and how do you solve it. Cheers.

Pam Sparks said...

oh yes, I like this set up! I wish it was an option for me with wordpress.

Am your newest follower now and love the pop up window. I haven't changed mine on my blog, www.beverlyjordan.blogspot.com and have trouble with followers since my join button is at the very bottom of my page. Most don't find it. Thank you for all the info!
