"Troubleshooting" Revisited...a look at why your computer may be making you crazy.

Hi All you blogging buds.
Today I'm reposting something from last Fall, as it seems that problems with publishing posts, uploading photos, leaving comments, and all those fun hairpulling issues have resurfaced after the new year. Just some real life information on why you may be experiencing these problems. Here's the skinny...

First off, I am not a computer tech, or pretend to know a lot about the www or computers or browsers or search engines, yada yada yada. I'm a blogger that has been asked to jump through hoops in the last several months just to leave a comment on a post.

I'm not wanting to make enemies of large global corporations,
 I just would like to be able
to have my blog, and have it function correctly
without having to stand on my head blindfolded
and hope and pray that
I can put out a post,
upload photos,
leave a comment on my friends' blogs,
and have a happy life...
Is that too much to ask?
Gee, I think not!

After months of said issues,
last week I began to experience so many problems with commenting
that my frustration level was at an all time high.
Nothing I could do would keep my comments on the page.
Not even the usual aforementioned "tricks".

An at length conversation
with my knowledgeable business and computer savvy hubbs
convinced me that waiting this out for our friends at Blogger to fix
would not happen.

Now you will have to read between the lines of the rest of this post.

Recently Blogger was bought out by Google.
Consider this "team Google"

Windows and Internet Explorer are on "team Windows".
Are you getting the picture?
They don't play on the same team,
nor do they want to.

I changed out my browser to Google Chrome yesterday,
and now all is right in the blogging world.
I think Firefox and a couple of others browsers are also compatible.
You can check to see what you prefer.
I'm just saying that if you're tired of the hurdles,
 unchecking boxes,
null cookies message,
fussing and fuming,
loosing comments,
etc, etc.
You now have an answer to the problem.
It was created by the big boys.
And it's not going away.

Please leave a comment if you have experienced this problem
and/or you use Internet Explorer as your browser.
I'm not "taking sides"
just relaying the facts.

Apologies to all my blogging buds.
I have lost hundreds of my comments to you in the last few months.
love you all,

 Hope this helps some of you out there experiencing blogging issues. Trust me, changing to a new browser will take care of 98% of your problems.
