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 [email protected] 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.

    Thank you, everyone and it seems there is no issue when the blog is on the Amateur radio dot com site. Very happy to read that the posts are enjoyed! On my main blog is where the problem seems to be, I have only had one comment make it onto the blog. I have had 3 other attempted posts where the individuals emailed me to inform me of the comment. For some reason the main blog page it seems hit and miss with the comments still.
    Thanks, everyone.

    I’ve commented before and traded a few e-mails over time. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog that I get via the URL

    I’ll do a search to find your other blog site and try there as well.

  • Mike VEpKK:

    Good morning Nolan and as always very nice to hear from you, yes it seems the site has no issues with is good to know. Up to this point, I was not sure if it was my own site as well as this one that had issues. Let me know when you attempt to post on my home blog and I will be looking for the comment.
    Have a great Sunday and the upcoming week.
