I am thankful for each of you bloggers out there who do NOT make me do the whole “prove you’re not a robot” thing in order to comment on your blog! I hate those things…and I almost always mess up….and I usually have to ‘get new words….and it is just oh-so-frustrating! I understand why people do it (we all hate spam), but there are several options outside of having your blog set-up this way. A few examples:
- you can moderate comments, meaning approve/not approve before they publish
- you can set-up to approve NEW commentors, and after you approve them and they want to comment again in the future, they are free to post (this is what I do)
- you can set your blog up to where you have to enter the weird numbers/letters the first time you post under your profile, but every time after that it doesn’t make you do it (I’ve seen several like this as well)
I usually do most of my blog reading at night on my iPad….and if I get the whole “enter these crazy looking letters/numbers” thing, I’ll just skip posting a comment. It’s too much trouble, especially on the iPad.
If you like comments (or MY comments, in particular), maybe consider the above options! I’m thankful if you do!
