Trouble with posting comments

I interrupt the four-part book review of “Make Every Word Count” by Gary Provost to bring you the following message.

I’ve heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. I guess it’s true, because I’ve had a computer problem that has been slowly driving me crazy.

I’ve recently had difficulty posting comments on blogs, and would do the same thing over and over and hope it would finally “take.” For instance, I would write a comment, try to post it, and would be “sent” to the log in. I would log in, then it would take me back to the post and have me type in a word in a font that only a human could recognize. When I typed in the word, it would take me back to the log in, which I would do again, then send me back to the word in a weird font. I would try several times, thinking I was doing something wrong.

My computer-savvy husband, Randy, told me that when I log in to Blogspot by entering my email address and password, I need to uncheck the box underneath that says “Stay signed in.” I did that, and I was able to post comments on my blog and the blogs of others immediately! Thank you, honey.

I hope this helps anyone else who is having trouble with posting comments.

Talk to you soon,



  1. Wow! Who knew it could be something so easy! I haven't been having that problem and I guess it's because I DO uncheck that box and the same one in facebook! Thanks, Mary!!

  2. Hi Mary,
    I was having a similar problem and finally figured it out, but it was frustrating while I was going through it.

  3. I wasn't sure if I was the only one or not!

  4. I don't use Blogger, but I'm glad you figured it out! Thanks again for working with me on the MWG newsletter, too!

  5. I still have technical difficulties from time to time, but hopefully I'm learning!

  6. Mary,
    Thank you so much for your techie tip.
