I am so frustrated! Several months back, I noticed that I kept getting errors when I tried to reply to comments on my blog. I just thought there was some temporary glitch with Blogger and didn't think much about it. Then, I started having trouble commenting on other people's blogs. Seriously, I read a few every week but when I try to comment, the comment box won't accept my name--it wants me to use an Open ID user name. Well, none of those are M.P. McDonald. One is from an ancient LiveJournal I used, and the other is from WordPress--and I always forget my user name from that account since I only made it once to comment on a WordPress blog that required it.
I have Googled the problem and searched the Google Help forums--but nobody at Google seems to check those forums so it's just a bunch of other clueless people like me offering suggestions. I tried a few but nothing worked. The problem seems to have started about the time Google did something with the Friend Connect feature. I don't know what it is, or how to fix it, but it's making using my blog next to impossible. People must think I'm ignoring their comments, but in truth, I can't even comment on MY OWN BLOG!
I guess I'll have to try and figure out WordPress after all, but I really don't have time to do that. So frustrating!
