WordPress and Blogger are both blog platforms. Competing platforms. For years, I’ve gotten reports that I am a “no reply” blogger and that I need to fix this. What that means is, being a WordPress user, I could comment on Blogger blogs, but my email was not linked so no one could reply to my comment. This isn’t a WordPress issue, it is a Blogger issue. They don’t play nice together.
The only way to fix that, was for me to create a blogger or Google profile. Yeah, not gonna do that. I don’t need another thing to sign in and out of every time I want to comment. At the end of the day, I don’t leave comments just to get a response. Having said that, I do like to reply to comments myself so I understand the frustration.
Recently, I’ve noticed that I am no longer able to even comment on many (most?) Blogger blogs. The only option for leaving a comment is to log into Google. Since I don’t have a Google account and have no plan to create one, I can’t even comment let alone expect a response. To make matters worse, most Blogger bloggers don’t even know this is an issue with their own blogs!
I decided to do a bit of investigation and I found this fix. I don’t mean to tell anyone what to do with their own blog, but if you have noticed a lack of comments, this may be why. If you have Google+ comments enabled, you only get comments from Google+ users.
Now, you may be wondering what these particular quilts have to do with this post……the answer is absolutely nothing. But a post without pictures just seems wrong. 😁
So I hope this is helpful information. Have a great day!
