Wondering about wild grapes

Wondering what the problem is with my blog site.

I have been told that some of you are having problems posting comments on my sight. I have no idea what so ever it could be. I have never changed any setting since I have started this blog. I enjoy comments, especially the humorous, the informative, or especially the ones that correct me and set me straight. Therefore, I am disappointed when I don’t get any or very few comments.

I know that no one comments every day on all the blogs they read. I sure don’t. I read a lot of blogs and don’t always leave comments and don’t expect you to, either. But, I would like to know that if you wanted to, you could. I don’t know why some of you can’t post comments, but I will keep trying to find out what the reason is.

I have been trying to figure out what prompts people to post a comment. Some of my best blogs (in my opinion) have been the ones with the least comments. Yesterday I posted pictures of bears that invaded my cousin’s property the evening before and stayed until yesterday morning. It only got two comments. The day before, I talked about mosquitoes and how long it would take my local environment to return to normal after this severe drought we are having. It got three comments.

The day before that, when I posted a short note stating that my blog would be postponed that day because of work, I got four comments. Saying I wasn’t going to post got more comments then a lot of blogs I spend a lot of time preparing. Maybe I need to skip a few days a week to keep from getting too boring.

I know that there is no set formula for posting comments. Some days I just read the posts and don’t comment and some days I comment. My decision to comment has nothing to do with the quality of the blog’s content. It is more on my mental state that day, or how rushed I am, or if I have anything that might add to the other person’s posting.

Knowing all these things, and the fact that Blogger is acting up and not allowing some to comment, I understand and am glad I get the comments that I do. I never, ever expected to get any followers when I started this blog and I never planned on writing one every day.

Sorry for such a boring blog today. You all have a great day, you hear?


  1. No trouble posting from my location. I also have noticed during my 1250+ blog entries that you cannot begin to guess correctly which entry will get comments. Just write to please yourself and we will read it.

  2. For the sake of experiment, here's a comment. Hope it comes through. I've been having some trouble with Blogger myself. It wasn't letting me logon while using the Opera browser. Seems to be straightened out now.

  3. Barney, Yes I know that because a lot of times I really enjoy someone's blog but don't comment. My stats tell me I do get a lot of hits.

    Sixbears, you are loud and clear. No problem.

  4. If I don't have anything to say I try to keep my mouth shut. I am not always successful.

  5. Dang Oldfool, if I kept my mouth shut when I had nothing to say, I sure wouldn't being saying much, if anything. (grin)

  6. Yep, there's been some issues with come people's blog not allowing comments. Think it was http://www.rv0777.com/ that found out he had picked up a virus that was causing his issues.
    And there was an issue with Live Writer? not publishing.
    But you seem to be back to form now..

  7. Ben, Don't know about being back in form, could stand to drop 5 pounds or so. . .

    FT, Thanks for the comment, I mean thanks for the No comment.

  8. If it makes you feel better, I never had a problem posting. Maybe it's time to switch to wordpress?
