No Comments

If you look up slow study in the dictionary, there’s a good chance you’ll find a picture of me.  I post two or three blogs a weeks.  I don’t check my site analytics to determine if they are popular, nope, I’m too savvy for that.  I just read the comments that have been left.  A couple of days ago, I noticed that I had not received a single comment on the three blogs I’ve just posted in a new category called, My Online Family.  In my infinite wisdom, I assumed that no one liked the new category.

Today I checked all my recent blog posts and discovered the last comment posted was almost a month ago.  I assumed no one loved me anymore, or it was conspiracy to play a grand joke on me.

Then my lovely wife, Christina, said,

“I can’t leave a comment on your new blog.  In fact, I tried last night to leave a comment on your Russell Blake – Grady Woodfin post, and I couldn’t.”

Slow study that I am, I spent an hour trying to find out what was wrong with Christina’s computer.   Then I got an email from my friend Caleb Pirtle who said,

“By the way, I tried to post comments on the last three blogs you posted on Triberr. I type them in. I hit submit. The world goes blank and, I presume, dumps my words into cyberspace, which is probably where they belong. 

I did not want you to think I had forgotten you. I read the blogs faithfully, enjoy them every one, but my computer and Triberr, obviously, don’t speak the same language. Sorry.”

And then I got an email from Jo VonBargen, whom I blogged about this morning.  She said,

I can’t get my comments to post and stick anywhere. Damned frustrating!!

“Oh, damn, Bro ‘Bama, you went and made me cry. I even had to spit out that straw for a minute or two. Your words about me are too kind and pulled on just about every heart string I’ve got. You know I love you and Christina to death and beyond! You have been so supportive of me, both in my personal struggles and in my writing career. I don’t think I’d be where I am today without your wisdom and your constant support. I can honestly say I have no better friends than you two on the face of the earth. Thank you from the bottom of this holey ole heart, my friend!”

Then I Goggled – WordPress cannot leave comments.  That kicked off a work storm that lasted an hour, ending when I discovered that one of my Plugins had gone south.

So, now the offending plugin is deactivated and will remain that way until I get it repaired.

Until then, if you’d like to leave a comment on one (or more) of my posts you have no idea how much I would appreciate it.
