Something is up?

 Hmm something is just not as it should be? 

 

For about a month now I have been on the low side with receiving comments on my blog posts. Don't get me wrong I am not full of myself thinking my blog posts grab thousand of readers BUT I usually get a few comments. A fellow blogger  Bas PE4BAS  posted on his blog regarding a similar issue he was having and both our blogs are hosted by Blogger.  He found changing a few settings within Blogger did the trick for him. I followed his lead and did the same. I thought all was good until I had some emails from readers informing me they were unable to leave a comment. I was told that all seemed to go well with the comment bot and a comment was submitted but it would never appear on the post......

So here we are again.....if anyone out there has:

- Had the same issue with their blogger blog and found a work around let me know?

- If anyone has tried to leave a comment and it failed to post please let me know?

- Finally does anyone know of a no issues blog host? I have looked at WordPress but it seems for what I want to do I have to pay? 

Instead of the frustration of trying to leave a comment just email me at ve9kk@hotmail.com or try leaving a comment and see that happens but do email me as that for sure will get to me. It gets very frustrating when things are just working fine and someone somewhere has a bright idea to change things around.

I'll comment for the sake of a comment. I read the posts with Inoreader mostly and it works just dandy.

Well your comment seemed to make onto the page but I have had others try to comment and at the same time they emailed me. I never saw the comment show up on the page hmmm it almost seems random.
73 and thanks for commenting.

Yes I have found recently that to leave a comment you have to be logged in or you will be prompted too. Thanks for the feedback and have a great week.

Indeed have problems when I try to comment with my google account, even when already logged in. I can comment with my name and URL though. But it shouldn't be like this. The strange thing is that at some blogs it works fine while others give problems... so far my workaround does work but I can't write I like it. I wouldn't recommend wordpress, it is too complicated and doesn't have the same features blogger has. 73, Bas

Good morning Bas, yes I have found with this post regarding the posting issue I have had some comments posted while others have sent me emails saying they tried but were not able to. At the Blogger website it is very difficult to find any information regarding this issue and there really is not support you can chat with.
73 and have a good week Bas,

Hi MIke, the situation is now that we have to be logged in for leaving a comment. Normally I am always logged in with Google. Have a nice weekend, 73 Paul

Good morning Paul, thanks for stopping by and very nice to hear from you. I have had the same issue and had to sign in to Google. I have had emails from readers saying they submitted a comment and it was indicated the comment would get posted but nothing happens.
