There are some things I really like about Blogger. It's fairly easy to use. I like that my posts look they same when I write them as when they post. And it's great that it doesn't seem to crash and lock you out like it used to a few years ago.
The one thing I'm not crazy about though is the commenting system. I can't reply to ANYONE who leaves a comment now. Not even people who I've corresponded with for several years. Blogger, or Google, or whoever it is, blocks all of the email addresses.
I thought the whole point of blogging was to create a community of like minded people so that they could collaborate and CONNECT.
I just tried downloading a 3rd party widget which did not work for me at all, and now I look like a brunette version of the lady above. You know that feeling when you add something to your blog and are excited to view it only to find that you may have just lost 4 years of work.....that's how I felt until I figured out how to uninstall it...FAST!
So, my plea to any other Blogger bloggers out there is to PLEASE tell me what you use that lets you interact with your visitors? I need all the HELP I can get right now.
I probably won't be able to respond to you but I would be eternally grateful for your suggestions and guidance. Just leave a comment below or email me.
