Problem leaving comments

  1. When commenting on other blogs, perhaps on other platforms, I attempt to publish my comments using the option "WordPress" which requires me to enter my username. However, I receive an error message telling me I don't "own" that username. Can you help me understand this issue?
    Blog url:

  2. Are you referring to Blogger blogs? Trying to post comments on Blogger blogs is a drag. Open ID fails more often than it works and blogspot sotware thinks we all have a single username here at and a single blog by the same name. So if we have a domain or more than one blog registered under the same username trying to comment becomes a nightmare. Unless the blogger chooses to enable commenters to post with a username and URL on their Blogger blog it's next to impossible to leave a comment. The only workaround is to register a Blogger blog which will allow you to comment but your username will not be linked to your blog when you do.

  3. Most are Blogger blog. I've managed to workaround a couple of times, but not very often am I successful. Now I know why I left Blogger - definitely not very accommodating! :) Thanks for the info.

  4. You're welcome and best wishes with your new blog. :)

  5. Thanks -- took a quick look at your blog and found it be a very helpful place. Following you now!

  6. That's great news. Thank you and welcome. :)
