Here we go again!
Flicked, rather unceremoniously, into the dark recesses of the spam vaults.
This is a rather unusual post for two reasons.
One; to highlight a few of the blogs that I follow, and two; to hopefully highlight to the blog author that I need to be rescued from their spam folder before I’m ejected to the furthest and most remote areas of the cyber ether one can reach.
I’ve been a-visiting once again tonight. Some blogs I don’t seem to get onto as often as others, some I’ve only recently started following, and others I’m a regular there, so regular they know where I sit and have my drink waiting for me when I stroll up.
The first blog I visited this evening, was More Than A Cat, which is a relatively new blog for me. I tried to comment on this post, about M C Escher, when I noticed something was up. I commented, clicked post, and then the screen flickered. I knew instantly what had happened. My comment had vanished.
The second blog was a regular haunt of mine, Nancy’s Spirit Lights The Way. Her post Now That’s Punny left me grinning, and I wanted to say so. BUT COULDN’T! However, in adding the hyperlink to this paragraph, I noticed the URL had a reference to a comment and number at the end. I removed this, and linked just to the post itself.
I don’t want anyone else going into spam now!
Next on my whistle stop tour of Blogland today was another of my regular spaces, Andra’s The Accidental Cootchie Mama. My comment posted on her Details of my Digital Detox, and the URL also featured the comment number at the end, so that scuppered that theory. Still, I’m 2-1 down, yet I persevere!
Hey Schoo Teecha Whassup was my next port of call, over on Soma’s blog, Somkritya, and her post had my Inner Zombie acting in a very strange frenzied state. He was looking for some hip clothes for some reason. Actually, Soma’s post explains why. And, my comment posted there without error. Yippee!
Kate Shrewsday’s blog next. Her post The Toilet, the App and the Slight Hitch (rather aptly named, if I might add!) sent my comment careering through the spam cistern of doom, and, if I’m not mistaken, I had to like the post twice. Which, it goes without saying, I don’t mind doing in the slightest.
From Kate, I moved onto Susan Sheldon Nolen’s blog, and her post Blog Break- Ted’s not impressed with lab burgers or talking robots! Susan also referred to Kate’s toilet (not literally!) but my comment posted without difficulty this time.
Once there was a Bear and Elton John Enters the Room, over on Belle of the Carnival’s blog, was my next port of call. Another ‘new’ blog for me, but I needed and wanted to leave a comment… but couldn’t. Sigh. OK, maybe this comment wasn’t the funniest, but, like spam, it was kind of food based.
Carol, at Carol’s Place, posted some Mark Twain Quotes. I tried to point out one of my favourites over there, but was silenced without ceremony. It’s funny as I was referring to keeping silent in the comment…
… I’m sayin’ nuthin’!
Visionkeeper reminded me, in New Moon Today, Folks, that I’ve kind of lost touch with the Moon of late, so I need to take some time aside to refocus. I tried, and failed to comment there, but if these blogging and commenting problems continue I may have some more time on my hands anyway until they are resolved.
I’d Rather Be In Iceland is another blog I need to visit more. Obviously because I’d like to visit Iceland, and Eva very kindly offers up some fun Icelandic goodies. She’s posted about the prettiest place to cross a bridge in Iceland in her post today, and I tried to comment over there as well. And I succeeded! Who’d have seen that coming?
Hump Day Giggles was my next stop, over at Gray Dawster’s blog. I’d actually forgotten to leave a comment over there, but remembered I’d forgotten when I went to get the link to the post (which may not work as Andro has a private members blog). As I remembered I’d forgotten, I posted a quick comment and was sent into oblivion. Sigh.
From Andro, I moved over to Tilly’s site, better known as The Laughing Housewife. I tried to comment on her post Ewwww!, really for testing purposes more than anything, because this post is gross. Tilly says so herself. And my comment posted.
And finally, I visited another regular stomping ground of mine, Prenin’s Little Page. Prenin’s blog is more of a diary where he recaps his comings and goings on a daily basis, and, like me, he has been suffering at the hands of WordPress problems for the last few weeks. I commented on his post Monday – Medication day, to let him know that these problems are flaring up again… but he’s already aware.
And WordPress are as well, apparently. So hopefully, they should be fixed soon!
Follow the links to the above blogs, if you don’t visit them already, and ignore my moans and groans… you’ll have a fun time if you do!
I shall visit other blogs tomorrow night. There may be a follow up post to this one… you never know!
Incidentally, there are even more blogs to visit from my Links Page. Follow the link in the menu at the top of the page! I hope you can visit and comment freely!
Have a great time exploring Blogland… I know I certainly do!
Oh, and for those who have me in their spam folder… could you release me, please? Thank you kindly!
