A Hiccup

Somewhere along the way, an application for comments attached itself to my blog. I didn’t download it, it just appeared and I hated it. It was cumbersome and didn’t e-mail me when a comment was left and I have spent almost a year fighting with them to get it removed. Finally, I had to send the entire HTML code for them to remove it. AND THEY REMOVED ALL THE COMMENTS TOO!!! Which they had assured me wouldn’t happen.

So if you left a comment for the book give away, please leave another? Or e-mail me and tell me you left a comment and I’ll add your name. I am extending the contest by another week, to September 21, for people to catch up. The book I am offering is Past Caring by Robert Goddard, a great saga of mystery, betrayal and love that stretches over seventy years.

Sorry for the complication. Nothing in my life is ever easy. And I hate the people at Echo who caused all this trouble in the first place. Bastids!

You have a lovely, informative site here. I don't get to read "books" like I used to, but some I've seen here do sound interesting, especially "Gone-Away Lake". I'd be pleased to be entered in your giveaway.

Hi Linda! Thanks for stopping by and especially for leaving your comment! I am glad you like the site and I appreciate your kind words. :)

Your comment app experience is another reason I'm glad I moved from Blogger to a self-hosted Wordpress site almost 2 1/2 years ago. I control the plug-ins and applications much more completely and things like you experienced don't happen as easily.

So sorry you've had trouble with Blogger. I, too, have moved to Wordpress. But I did get a programmer to help me do it, and there are still some bugs to be ironed out. I do like WP better, but I can't say it's perfect, by any means.

I found you while surfing on Expose Your Blog.

Hi Tarheel and DB! Thanks for stopping by!

Generally speaking I am happy with Blogger. But with all the buzz about Wordpress, I decided to switch over last year. Ironically I had HUGE problems, the most significant being when I signed on, I was accessing someone else's blog as well!

I let her know and we both let Wordpress know, but they couldn't offer any explanation or solution! So I decided to stick with Blogger.
