commenting on my experience with Blogger.com


I have been really thinking of starting another blog and using Blogger.com because they have tons of artists and its easy to follow their blogs.  But I just can not commit and the reason is their comment process.  So many times and I really wish all my fellow bloggers that use blogger, know how many comments you miss because Blogger makes it so hard to process a simple comment without jumping thru a million hoops. All to leave words of encouragement, or kudos, or just a hello, nice to find your site. But not with Blogger.com   I was just now making a comment and when I got to the post comment part I used wordpress and accedently hit the return key before everything was typed in and my whole comment vanished before I even realised what had happened..  I know I should have been paying more attention, but come on, this happens more times than not.  yuck

Here is the subject that another Blogger was posting about and how fun her post was.  A beautiful wooden chair that had been in the family forever, she had inherited it and painted it shiny black with pink and orange stripe cushions.  How fun,….. so I thought I would post a scan of a sketch I did of my favorite chair years ago.

My Green Chair

Now I need to go back and find that post.  Wish me luck

    CheyAnne, you’re exactly right about Blogger – at least from my perspective. There are blogs on the site I read fairly regularly, but I’ve had comments disappear, too.

    Even worse, the process is so cumbersome that sometimes I don’t even attempt to leave a comment because of the number of hoops you have to jump through. I think each blogger can set things up differently, but I counted the clicks necessary to leave one comment and it took eight by the time I’d said, “Yes, I’m from WordPress. Here’s my name and address. OK – here’s your “secret password”. Now I’ll click again. Now I’ll click again…”

    Good grief. There are days when it just doesn’t feel worth it. 😉

    I got so exercised over blogger’s comments procedure last night I forgot to tell you how much I like your chair. It reminds me of the one I used to snuggle in with my dad. One of these days I have to go through photos – if I find one of us in the chair I’ll send it along.

    Linda you are sooo right on with it not feeling that its worth it. And I so want to comment because they took the time to post either a wonderful worded piece or even just simply art and I love it. Oh well, that must be why we are here on wonderful WordPress. Thanks for the comments and I’m glad the chair sketch brings up good memories with your Dad

    Sketching is something I’m really slack on (I know an “artist” shouldn’t admit that!). Good for you… it’s neat little sketch.

    Teresa, I think it’s all about what works for you. I love sketching mainly because of the marks on the page. In fact I’ve started going over some of my watercolor paintings with ink because I just love the strokes. My boyfriend wants me to do it to ALL my work, but I still like the idea of pure watercolor only. For a long time I had to sketch first and I find I like the idea of having it all planned out.

I would love to hear from you, thanks. I also really enjoy knowing how you came across my little piece of this world wide web we live in...
