blogger venting

so all day yesterday i tried to be a good little blogger and get back to all you lovely people and comment on your blogs. but blogger had other plans. instead he wanted me to type in the same word into "word verification" 50x (not working, OR giving me a new word to type in) until i finally gave up and closed out of all of my tabs. now, i know a few bloggers have mentioned this before, but honestly, word verification has got to go!

i. am. not. a. robot.
phew, there i said it.

now, on to the "how to":
1. sign on to blogger.
2. click on the tab, "settings".
3. now, click on the top tab, "comments".
4. scroll all the way down to the bottom where it says "show word verification for comments?" and click NO.
5. click "save settings".
6. you are now word verification free.
7. the blogging world praises rejoice.
8. more comments start coming in.
9. all is right with the world.

with that being said, i'm feeling 96% better. yep, that percentage is exact. and now i'm going to take a shower for the first time in a week, make myself presentable, put on my dancing shoes and enjoy this fun valentines day party that is all set up. the party includes a photobooth, lots of sugar cookies, and a few newlywed games. bring it!

oh, and just a reminder that today is the last day to send in your photographs of you and the one you love, with the city that you are from. email them to me at mr.taylorandhislady [at] gmail [dot] com.
happy weekend!!

  1. I recently changed my comment link when I found out that you good (I'm still new to blogging!) and I don't know why everyone doesn't do that! It makes it sooo much better to comment. Half the time I can't read what those letters are! Have a good weekend!!

  2. Couldn't have said it better myself girl! Those word verification are so silly/annoying. Also, comment pop up boxes are super awesome! Those make things really easy. Have a blast at your Valentines party! Sounds like fun!

  3. I was having the same frustration yesterday! So annoying! So I just gave up and thought stuff it! But people should turn it off--it means they get less comments really.

    Glad you are feeling better and first shower in a week--hot! hehehehe :)

  9. I haven't had an mishaps like that yet...but I am considering taking the word verification off my blog. I've only had one spam comment...ever. So I think I just might do it :P I'm glad it is all working for you know :) Sierra

  10. I definitely agree, ugh I hate word verification!

  11. Amen girl! Word verification is my pet hate and sometimes I can never even make sense what the letters are meant to be yet alone how to type it. There's one gig ticket selling website that actually drives me mad because it says I do it wrong everytime. AHHHH

  12. I turned off word verfication for awhile and ended up with lots of spam? Maybe I'll try it agian though as it is a hassle. Your Valentines party sounds mega fun!! Glad you feel better.

  13. I don't have word verification, dismantled that sucker long ago, I agree it's annoying. One thing I just figured out though is that a comment box doesn't come up for me on many blogs (including yours). Finally I figured out to get around this I would click on 'reply' to the last comment and then suddenly at the bottom pops up a little box that says 'comment' and then I click on that to post my own comment rather than reply to a previous bloggers comment. Make sense?

  14. I dislike word verification INTENSELY >_>. The only good thing about it is the occasional laugh over an unusual or amusing one.

    But, every time I try disabling it on my blog, I end up getting spammed within a couple days.

    :(

  15. I turned mine off! I honestly didn't even know that I had that on there - I HATE those things!! I always get excited when I get your lovely comments :)

  16. Fantastic Advice. Just fantastic. Did it. Consider it done.

  17. You are feeling better! That is great! Oh, and word verification sucks but when I turn it off I get spam :(

  18. Hey there! We tried turning ours off for a bit because we were thinking "how much spam could we possibly get?" Surprisingly we got a lot of spam and had to turn it back on because the spam was so totally annoying. :-)

  20. i haaaaaate work verification. hate it. i hate when i can't get it right and blogger makes me think i'm stupid by giving me bigger letters.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Whew! So glad you are not a robot. I was wondering about that one...:)

    Seriously though, word verification is soooo awful! I turned mine off and haven't had any problems since.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha, I agree.. I don't have mine turned on. A lot of the time, I comment on somebody's page & then click exit before I realize I needed to put in verification. Annnoooyyyinnnggg!!
    That said, this photo of you & your hubby is gorgeous. I'm obsessing over how pretty you look! Happy Friday momma!

  30. I HATE word verification. So annoying. But in the new blogger interface I couldn't find how to disable it. Had to go to the old settings to do it. Weird.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Can I just add to this TJ? I was trying to turn this off, but they don't have it in the new blogger interface so there is one extra step.

    You have to go to settings and switch back to the old blogger interface, and then do all your steps!

    Thanks for reminding me to do this!

  44. I am so with you. I just got rid of my word verification! It doesn't take a lot of time, but when you're trying to read several blogs in one sitting and comment...it's time consuming!!

    ReplyDelete

  48. I completely agree TJ! I hate word verifications! It really slows everything down and many times I've just not left a comment because of word verification, which is sad! :( But I'm glad to know someone out there agrees with me! :)

    Anyway, I am now in love with your blog TJ! :))
