ARGGGGGGHHHHHHH ..........





I had an email from my blogging friend Elizabeth over at The Vintage Contessa telling me that she couldn't comment on my blog !!!


Although things aren't what they were in the blogging world { I used to get 100 comments in the old days but many have left blogging and gone on to other social media sites } but I did think that four comments was a bit low on my last couple of posts !!!!



I even started to think that I might give up my blog .....



..... atychiphobia was starting to set in !!!

I have checked everything on Blogger and all is as it should be, so I think it's Blogger's fault. 
There have been times that I haven't been able to comment and, when that happens to me, I either sign into Blogger again or I look for the blog that I want to comment on on Firefox, as it's usually with Safari that I have the problem. Firefox always seems to be fine. 


One of the nicest parts about blogging and the main reason that I blog and prefer it to any of the other social media sites, is the fact that we interact with such lovely people and can have a ' chat ' ... it is the modern way of having penfriends from all over the world ..... I like to think of my blogging commenter's as friends and it's always a little bit disappointing when we don't get any comments ..... I really have missed you guys over the last few posts but I'm pleased that it's only Blogger and not the fact that you have gone off  of me !!!
I've also noticed that it says  UNFOLLOW under my followers and not FOLLOW and I'm not sure how to fix that either !! 
Anyone who knows how to fix any of these problems, please let me know ... 
Perhaps anyone who reads this could just comment so I know that you can ... by the way, this isn't a way of getting lots of comments !!! haha !!!





LOOK ..... even Shakespeare likes my blog !!!

 Shame that he can't comment !!!

    1. Hi Libby and thanks so much for your comment considering that I have been very lax, commenting on yours ! It looks as if people can comment but some can’t. At least I know that you are there. 😘 XXXX

  2. It's not the number of comments that count; it's the quality (ahem).

    1. Haha Cro ...... but very true ! I just had s feeling that something was amiss ...... I still don’t know why it says UNFOLLOW instead of FOLLOW under my followers ..... it says it on yours and Toms but Rachel and Johns says FOLLOW ! XXXX

  3. It has been so frustrating of late.
    I like the “Blog Connection” best too.
    I think some other social sites are just quick fixes.
    I like the chat . . . tell my whole history . . ,
    (Smile, not the WHOLE history!)

    The commenting bit is my biggest complaint.
    It takes sometimes 3-10 tries before the commentv will take!
    I haven’t solved It but I am going to figure it out!
    Plus I used to be notified when someone commented on my posts.
    Now that is gone too.

    I write my comment and then select it, copy it and sometimes that works best when I paste it .

    I am here though, happy you are there Jackie, and let’s stay connected.
    You . . . YOU my dear are a favorite!
    love

    1. Hi Lynne and thanks for persevering with the comments ..... i’ve Been there and it’s so frustrating usn’t It, especially when you’ve written a brilliant (?) comment and then it disappears !!

  4. I agree with Cro. I hold the few who comment on my blog in high esteem.


    I have given advice before about problems with comments because it seems to be on-going for Blogger users:

    Make sure Third Party Cookies are enabled.

    Stay away from Safari.
    And remember that Apple and Google do not like each other if it is on an Ipad or Iphone that you are having problems.

    Whatever, Jackie, I am still here!xxx

    1. I’m not obsessed about getting as many comments as possible ..... it was just a bit disheartening getting only a couple !!!!
      It’s very random on Blogger ..... this thing where it says UNFOLLOW under my followers ....... yours and Johns says FOLLOW but mine, Cro’s and Tom’s says UNFOLLOW which means people can’t follow us. Usually these things resolve themselves after a while.
      Thanks for still being there Rachel 😘 XXXX

  8. Seems to be working? When it says UNFOLLOW it usually applies to blogs that YOU are following. You don't want to give your followers the easy option of creeping out the back door without saying goodbye!

    1. Thanks Tom and I haven’t forgotten about you know what !!!!
      .. the FOLLOW/UNFOLLOW thingy ........ there is no option on our blogs for people to follow. It used to say FOLLOW but now says UNFOLLOW ... so does yours ! XXXX

      Delete
    2. Does it? I know that if you are already following someone the only option is to unfollow. I sometimes have trouble trying to follow someone as there often seems to be no way to do it. Re the other thing - no pressure at all! I may not need one in any case.

  9. I'm here-I'm here! I've just been battling life. I hate that I cannot easily return via email to comments. We lost that awhile ago. I rarely return to see what someone replied so I assume many others do also. I have always answered comments, but now I have to leave and go find their email and then reply grrrr. I use Chrome and never have issues (fingers crossed tuttuttut) I've heard safari does not like what blogger is NOT fixing. We're the dinosaurs babe. I get much more notice on IG but I just feel like I'm shouting out stuff at folks instead of visiting like we all have these many years. : D

  12. Oh, hello again! I didn't realise the Eurocentric bloggers overlapped here with the exclamatory Americans in the Venn Diagram of blogging.

    1. Hi Vanessa .... yes, we all overlap each other here in Blogland. We do not discriminate in any way 🤣😂🤣. XXXX

  13. Like you dear I seem to still get a ton of 'readers' but fewer commenters! I admit I don't always comment either when time is limited however I do love hearing from many long time friends and hope I can keep going with my blog. I may have to cut down on posting almost daily - which means I need to take fewer photos, haha!

    Love how you illustrated this post - you find the most amazing photos always. the girl on the swing could by 'Margot' on The Durrells in Corfu! Do you watch that TV series? We love it, and laugh so much at that incredible family and the 'one-liners', especially from Margot and Keeley Hawes!
    Happy autumn in London.
    Mary x

    P.S. I see mine still says FOLLOW - strange yours doesn't.

    1. Hi dear Mary,
      I’m afraid i’ve been a bit bad on the commenting front so I shouldn’t expect as many comments but most have left blogging now. I still like blogging the best ..... the other social media sites seem so impersonal and just a photograph and maybe one sentence ..... everything seems to have to be as short and sweet as possible and many are trying to make money out of it.
      We loved The Durrells ..... another lovely, charming series which was easy to watch and didn’t make you feeling miserable !!!!! That’s the sort of thing I like to watch.
      Autumn is in full swing here on the outskirts of London .... my husband sweeps up leaves everyday at the moment.... London is a carpet of yellow, orange and red. Have a lovely week Mary. XXXX

  15. I'll confess I'm a reader but never commented. I love blogs and hope they are never replaced by other forms of social media which seem to only offer a momentary pleasure before they are gone and replaced by the next 30 second entertainment. Part of the reason I never comment on most blogs is having issues with posting comments. Once it becomes too hard I don't bother.
