A Comment about Comments

I added "comments" back into my blog. I took comments out awhile ago for two reasons. First, I had come to the conclusion that I didn't want to know if someone was reading my blog, because that might compel me to tweak my writing on behalf of that person. You know, to add certain things just for his or her behalf, or worse, omit things that may offend that person. Secondly, I don't share my blog with anyone (except for Shannon, and now Kristyn) I have stated previously, this whole thing started as a personal online journal. So why have a comment option just for one (or two) people?

Given all this, why am I bothering to add that feature back in? Well, it was a spur of the moment decision. I just tried yet again, for the gazillionth time, to comment on my sister's blog, and for some reason it won't let me ("it" being the magical forces that are against you when you're trying to accomplish something). In order to comment on a person's blog, you are required to type in the funky letters that are displayed on the screen (to make sure you're a legitimate human being or whatever), but every time the letters come on the screen for Shannon's blog, half of them are cut off. So I have no problem typing out a comment, but it won't let me post it. After several (oops, I mean a "gazillion") attempts, I finally decided to add comments back into my blog. I know that doesn't seem like much of a solution (because it isn't), but I figure on the off chance that someone out there in the internet wilderness stumbles upon my blog and is suddenly overcome with an urge to post a comment, at least he or she won't be denied the ability to do so as I perpetually am with my sister's blog.

This is just how I feel today though...I'm sure next week I will be removing that option again (for the above-mentioned reasons).


  1. I'm glad you opened comments. There have been so many times I've wanted to say something about what you've written, but couldn't.

    I have trouble leaving Shannon comments too. It only shows half the box for the captcha, but I managed to get around it by tabbing. The box moves down so I can see the captcha and then I just tab twice more and hit enter and it goes.

    Quick note, I have the same problem seeing the captcha letters on your comment box that I do on Shannons. It could be my browser, do you use firefox? I don't know. Either way, just thought I'd mention it. :)

  2. Hi Jodi! I am really too tired to leave a real comment, but had to leave something since the option is open now.

  3. Thanks Kristyn!

    "Half the box for the captcha...," that sounds so much more sophisticated than talking about funky letters getting cut in half (or however I worded it). I really need to learn to talk internet-ese, or tech-ese, or whatever you would call it (I'm sure there is an official word out there for "the language of the internet," but I'm at a loss).

    Thanks for the heads-up about my own "captcha" (is it?). Interesting that mine's doing it too. I don't have firefox, so something else must be the issue. I never thought to tab on Shan's--that seems like a head-slapping no brainer though, now that you bring it up.

    I just removed the captcha prompt completely, so there shouldn't be any more issues. I'll just leave it that way unless I start to get comment spam. Not sure what that is exactly, but my blog settings warned me about that possibility.

    Shan, sorry that you're tired...wake up!

    The event teams include champs from 32 Division I conferences (which get automated proposals), as well as 36 teams which are awarded at-large berths.

Each group is "seeded", or ranked, within its region from 1 to 16. After an preliminary four video games between eight lower-ranked teams, the competition happens throughout the program of 3 weekends, at pre-selected neutral sites across the United States. Groups, seeded by rank, continue through a single game elimination brace beginning with a first round containing 64 groups, to a "Sweet Sixteen", as well as for the last weekend break of the competition, a Final Four.

  11. There exists practically a full week March Madness of action before the NCAA tournament announces the field on Selection On the. But even though that won't happen until Drive 12, March Madness Live it's simple enough to project the four No more. 1 seeds in Drive Madness.

    The four top seeds should be March Madness Live Stream guarding national champion Villanova, North Carolina, Kansas and Gonzaga. Those four have recently been at the top of the rankings and possess also been the selections of bracketologists March Madness Bracket like ESPN's Later on Lunardi and March Madness 2017 s Jerry Palm, and it will be a surprise if they didn't emerge at the conclusion of the meeting tournaments that will be held at throughout the week.

    Villanova (28-3, 15-3 Big East) has put together a sensational season after beating New you are able to in last year's March Madness 2017 Live countrywide title game. Head mentor Jay Wright has retained his foot on the gas pedal, and the Wildcats have continued to produce on a regular most basic. NCAA March Madness

    Villanova is the Zero. 1 seed in the Big East tournament 2017 March Madness , and while that league has regularly produced upsets in the conference tournament, it would be somewhat of a shocker if the Wildcats didn't make it to it game. In the event they face second-seeded Retainer, it could be a good game that will go down to the cable because Butler has defeated Villanova twice.

    One other quick note: I moved Gonzaga back up to the top seed line after a third thoroughly impressive win over a very good Saint Mary's team in the WCC name game. That's not total, though. The Pac-12 competition champion march madness schedule 2017 could easily find yourself there by the end of the week, particularly if the winner of the Arizona/UCLA semifinal beats Or in it game.
