My technically-inclined, way-smarter-than-I-am daughter spent a couple of hours today doing some research and checking out the settings on my computer. Following are some notes she left for me to share with you.
~ We've removed the CAPTCHA (I'm not a robot) confirmation previously required before posting your written comment on my blog. That *should* help.
~ Google+ users have also been having problems posting comments on Blogger - go figure. (This according to Blogger with no fix offered.) So if you are using Google+, this could be contributing to the problem of your comments "disappearing."
~ Comments disappearing before being posted *IS* a common problem that Blogger is not addressing!
~ You can also make sure that your browser is set to ENABLE (stop filtering) "third party cookies." That setting has a known affect on Blogger commenting.
Bottom line, there doesn't seem to be any easy fix for the problems you may be having commenting on my blog or other blogs. Frustrating, I know, but at present this is all I can offer.

I have heard from Pam Malone, the winner of the crocheted rug, so it will be sent out to her p.d.q.!
