Why is this occurring. I have several other blogs and am familiar with WP but, this has me baffled. pastorjeffsblog.wordpress.com Thanks for any help in advance.

Also check in the post itself (in the blue “discussion” box on the right) that the “allow Comments” and “Allow Pings” is ticked. Fingers crossed!
