30 days of Thanks- Day 19

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!

  1. Hmm… I’m not even sure how I have mine set as. I have spam blocker on the biz website, but I don’t know if I have it set up on the personal one. I do have it set up so I can moderate comments.

  2. Your personal blog DOES have the dumb robot thingy on it. FYI.

  3. I’m not sure if I have the anti-robot thing set up on mine, and if I do I’m not sure how to get rid of it lol

  4. It’s not that big of a deal on the personal blog since only a handful of people know about it, but I’ve had to spend time wading through 16 pages of spam once on the biz blog before I got the spam plug-in. That was lame.
