Taking Care of Business

Calling Pam Malone, calling Pam Malone!  Hey, Pam, on my blog post of Wednesday, April 18th, I drew your name as winner of the crocheted rug I offered as a giveaway.

I asked that you send me your mailing address so I could get the rug off to you, but I haven't yet heard from you.  If you're still interested in receiving the rug, please go to the "Contact Me" button on my right hand side bar and send along the needed information.

If I don't hear from you by this Thursday, April 26th, I'll draw another name to receive the rug.  Hoping we can make the connection.

Another bit of business:  One of my blog readers, wisps of words, is having one heckuva time commenting on my posts.  She starts typing her comment, but gets no farther than it half written when . . . poof! . . . the incomplete comment disappears.  She has asked if I would check with the rest of you to ask if you've been having anything similar happen when you comment on my blog.

I'm having difficulties, also, when I want to reply to your comments on my blog.  I click in "Reply" and then have to wait (each and every time) for two to three minutes (arrrrgh) before the box appears in which I can write.  This makes commenting a long, very frustrating, time-consuming task.

Someone suggested that when I want to comment (to your comments on my blog), I just go down to the bottom comment box and write all the individual comments to each of you all grouped together in that box.  Having tried that I find I get my thoughts written to about two of you when the whole thing disappears.  Arrrrgh, again.

I'm thinking both wisp of words problem and mine are connected to Blogger rather than our individual computers, but I certainly could be wrong.

So, I'm asking if any of you are having trouble commenting on my blog or having other difficulties that you think are connected to Blogger rather than the system settings on your computers.  What say you?

I have not come across any such issues...

Well the last time you mentioned having trouble replying/commenting I was not having any trouble, and then all of a sudden the same problem began happening to me. But only a few times back then.... haven't seen it since.... but after writing this comment it will probably occur again. Have a good day Mama Pea! :)

DDD said...

yes, it disappeared on me.

Mama Pea said...

Lisa - Isn't it funny how something like that happens? Sort of like when one light bulb blows out. Two more are sure to follow in quick succession!! Hoping we haven't jinxed you now!

Mama Pea said...

DDD - Your comment when you tried to comment here?

DDD said...

My first incomplete comment disappeared.
My second short comment is ok.
This is my third one.
I wrote it as a note and copy/paste to post my comment.
I love your blog!! Glad Papa Pea is well, and there is no permanent damage...

wisps of words said...

AND MY COMMENT WENT POOF!!!!!

wisps of words said...

Wisps of Words here, again.

thanks for asking.

I figured others had this problem, but were too "nice' to tell you.

I was right.

wisps of words said...

Have you thought about making your blog settings wider?

Perhaps this would solve both the comment-POOFing, and your replying?

Mama Pea said...

DDD - Thanks for further clarification. This may all help. Eventually. :o) Sorry you're having to go to extra trouble to get a comment to work. :o(

Thank you so much for the kind words!

Mama Pea said...

wisps of words - &*@^$%#!!

Mama Pea said...

wisps of words - The plot thickens . . . I'll continue working on this.

MrsDuncanMahogany said...

Just had it happen to me! It happened to me earlier on when I visited your blog and then it was good. But this morning as soon as I started typing, poof! Gone! So. Weird.

Susan said...

Ha! I just had it happen! My comments do disappear - usually right at the beginning - once in a while. This does not happen to me every time. I wonder what elements you and WOW have in common on your blog set up. BTW, LOVE the new header pic! Love it!

Mama Pea said...

wisps of words - Hang in there, investigation is in progress . . .

Mama Pea said...

MrsDM - Thank you, thank you for your input. Needless to say, trying to get this "fixed!"

Mama Pea said...

Susan - Good grief, we've an epidemic going!

I've always loved that photo, too. No, it wasn't taken this year but a couple of years ago. Different conditions every year when the pond ice starts melting. This year it's just kinda ugly, slowly sinking into moosh.

Michelle said...

No, I've never experienced any problems commenting. Can't figure out what happened to the "reply" button in my OWN blog's comments, though! I just put my replies in a comment, and don't have any problems there, either. I use a Mac, not a PC.

Sandy said...

Mama Pea,

This has happened to me numerous times. Usually about the third time, it doesn't disappear and I'm able to transmit it to you.

Mama Pea said...

Michelle - Thanks for your input. It's all helpful!

Mama Pea said...

Sandy - So sorry you are having this inconvenience when commenting. Dang and drat!

Athanasia said...

Just testing. Seeing if my comment posts.
