Is it just me...?

Blogger aka Google
seems to be at it again.
For the last 2 days I've been trying to comment on blogs
and not being able to...

but I've just now learned something interesting.
Instead of choosing "Google Account"
just choose "anonymous".
then leave your blog name.

While I may not be doing the "Happy Dance"
at least we can adapt until they can get it fixed!!

See ya tomorrow with

love ya,


  1. Debra, I've noticed some funny things too. I will notice I have let's say 30 comments, then refresh and it will say 24. Then go back to the 30 etc. Also I had issues commenting on somone's post, then refreshed and refreshed and finally it allowed me to comment. Also, what is funny is, I'll see a new post from someone on my blog love, say two or three days ago, then suddenly it will appear again as though they just made it. Hmmm

  2. You are not the only one Debra! It has been giving me fits. I can comment on POP UP comment boxes , but not the others and usually it is the other way around for me. Hang in there and thanks for the heads up about the "fix".

  3. I had someone tell me they were showing up anonymous on their end but showing who they really are on my end. Weird
    Hope they fix it soon

  4. Is the "stay signed in box" checked when you log in to blogger? Try unchecking it and see if that works.

  5. Debra, I have had the same issue for three days..frustrating! I am trying this as "anonymous"

  6. Great, I hope this works. Kept trying to comment, but to no avail it just kept happing. Hoping you get this. DECOR. LADY'S HUMBLE ABODE

  7. Yep...I have been battling it....who knows if this will go through!! Ceekay

  8. Nothing yet, but I usually have some problems sooner or later!

  9. the same problem here! So frustrating! Thanks for letting us know. Love you blog! Hugs and Tweets!

  10. It has been weird for me, some blogs are fine and commenting works like a charm AND some don't! I will try your fix:) Thanks a bunch!


  11. I'm glad someone has figured this mystery out! That's just crazy!

  12. thanks for the tip!!

  13. THanks Debra, That is a good idea when the need arises.

  14. Hi Debra! The blogs that have pop comment windows are fine but I just learned another trick from another blogger. If you UNcheck the box when you sign into Google that says "Stay signed in" it lets you comment. Weird!!!

  15. Oh Debra Sweetie...
    I tell you blogger is playing games one after the other with us. My dashboard has been gone for almost 5 months. Even google reader shows empty most of the time. It has been a booger.

    Have a wonderful Memorial weekend sweetie. Many hugs, Sherry

  16. I've been having problems too, I haven't been able to get into my dashboard to do a post for several days... finally this morning I was able to post. Hopefully it will all get fixed soon!!!
    hugs~~ Daphne

  17. Blogger has really been giving me fits too...same issues as you. I'm trying to comment the regular way first to see if it lets me. It does sometimes and doesn't others for the past couple luck this time.

  18. i luv to blog!
    Blogger gave me some fits last week and started up again today.

    Deep sigh.
    Hoping it gets better!

  19. I'm so glad you posted this! I thought I was loosing my mind or my computer had a weird virus or something. I couldn't comment AT ALL. Instead of a box like this to type in, all I got the page asking you to sign in, but it wouldn't let me. All day yesterday.

  20. I had the same issue for 2 days, how I got mine to work is I unchecked the little box where is says stay signed in and then logged in, and it has worked ever since. Weird, but it worked for me! See you at your party tomorrow!

  21. Hi dearest, Oh I have had this for 3 dayes ,now, and am sad not being able to write, some of my dearest friends- thank you for telling this, I will try-
    I wish you a beautiful day, and many smiles.

  22. Yeah and I thought it was me. I just quit commenting because it was just so hard to do it. I wondered what happened. Thanks for letting us know.

  23. Hi Debra....strange happenings out there in blogland! Hope you are well! And thanks for the info.

  24. I think blogger is secretly trying to drive us all crazy ..... at once .... and it's working!

    Seriously, I did find that if I uncheck the "stay signed in" box, I usually don't have a problem. Go figure....

  25. I haven't had problems with comments but a lot of bloggers are talking about it.

    You and your area have been on my mind and in my prayers.

  26. Hi Debra!

  27. I just joined the party today because I just finished my project. Thank you for hosting this link party. You have such beautiful posts and inspiring ideas.
