Here I sit, at my computer tying desperately to learn all the new stuff and and remember it. I am also afraid that if I do something wrong I will kill this piece of technology and that would be very bad. And, if I could do something that bad…who knows…maybe I could put a kink into the whole blogiverse!
And, oh, my friends, if you could help me…if you could even send me scurrying in the right direction, I would be so, so eternally grateful.
So, here’s the problem. When I was on Blogger, I had all the blogs I correspond with regularly in a reader or something…I don’t know. But, when you posted a new post, it would let me know.
Now, I am on WordPress.(Someone I love dearly changed me over and said it was ‘for my own good’ and I believed him. And, he’s probably right. But, it’s looking like I may be at least 75 years old before I can agree with him.)
So, he helped me get the blogs into a reader. And, I can access them there. The problem is…I have nowhere to comment. I have looked and looked and looked on the page, and there is no comment box any where. Which sorta negates the idea of having them in a blog reader if I still have to go to the site to comment.
This is the state I find myself in at the moment. And, I am very frustrated. If any of you have any knowledge on the subject and would share with me…I would forever be in your debt. Plus I will sing your praises from the top of my blog, in living color, even. Because really, this just isn’t the best look for me…
And, I thank you ever so kindly for your consideration.
Please feel better by the knowledge that I have lived with a computer-printer guru for twenty-five years, and it took me a slap year and a half to learn to put pictures on my OWN blog!
And I STILL have to get him to size them and move them into the albums that I pick the pictures from.
I read all the blogs I follow in a google reader. You have to click and go to the blog to read it. So many people do not let their whole post show up in the reader anyway so you have to go to read it. That is usually the people who have ads and they don't get paid unless you open their blog.
The Google Reader that we set you up with is an RSS reader (short for 'Really Simple Syndication.) If you want to comment on a post you read, simply click the title of the article (it will be colored blue) and it will open that post in your browser where you can then comment. When you're done, simply go back to the reader and continue reading.
I use Google Reader, as well, and yes, that is a drawback…having to click out to comment.
Well, I have been wondering……but I have no technical knowledge at all and not even sure I have a brain! I have to sign into your blog every time I comment. I mean sign in! Name, email, website….so I don't even know how to subscribe to your blog…..:(
AND I'm just not all the sure I want to learn any new stuff. I'm a little brain dead these days! Sounds like your son may help you…..right after you slap him for the Really Simple thing! 🙂
I am cracking up here!!!!! Your post is funny enough, but Nancy's comment put me over the edge!! Oh, these smart boys (mine included) and their mothers.
