Ok, I know I don't normally post on the weekends but I've had a number of people ask me a question about how to comment on the blog and I figured I'd just post the answer for those of you who are having trouble.
Since I just recently had a phone conversation where I talked mom through the intricacies of attaching a document to an email message, I'm feeling particularly smart about technology at the moment and thought I would give it a whirl.
The first thing you do is look at the bottom of this post where it tells you how many comments there are. Click on the word "comments" and it will take you to the comment page. Makes sense already, right?
On the right-hand side of the page is a box where you can type in a comment (I prefer nice ones that tell me I'm cute and funny and talented, but you can do what you wish...). Right below the box it says "Choose an Identity." I'm guessing this is where people are having trouble.
I would recommend you click the little circle next to Name/URL. When you do, a little box will appear that allows you to type in your name so I know who you are. You can leave the URL box blank.
Then all you have to do is hit the "Publish Your Comment" button and your comment will appear at the bottom of the page.
Now... if you feel the need to quietly murmur to yourself in an Irish accent while you're doing it, don't feel crazy. I know some other people who have the same problem.
*Also, for those of you who don't know, any words in the post that are an orange color indicate a link (like in the sentence above). If you put your mouse over the words and click on them, it will take you to another post I'm making reference to. Don't worry, Mom, I'm sure you're not the only one who didn't know about that.
