That Time I Was a Bratty Blogger

So I have a bone to pick with blogger.

Anyone who has a blog post page like this



yeah, I can't comment. Blogger says I'm "not authorized."
(Naturally it says this after I've spent 5 minutes writing book-long, witty, thoughtful comments)

Seriously blogger? I'm like blog royalty! No? Ok, maybe like just a blogger maiden
Keep Calm and BLOG ON,LAPTOP 8x10 Print-(Raspberry Rouge Color featured) Customizable Colors

But still....

I've tried everything

even so far as entering my "AOL AIM ID"...Ugh hello 2001 and dial up internet



and if I happened to get through using the annoying "anonymous" feature.....you'll know it by my janky comment....where I sign my name and blog URL like we're pen pals. I apologize.

So I while I don't want to totally make this all about ME and ask that you all change your format to a more ashley comment-friendly pop-up box....I'm just going to throw it out there.

Plant that seed.  

Sow a thought



Oh, and you should kow.....if you have a format like this....


you have lots of sweet thoughts floating out in the blogger world about you.....not that that should influence your decision in any way.

And if you have any tips or solutions on how to overcome this....please leave them in my blogger friendly comment section ;)

XO, Your Bratty Blogger

This post totally made me go back and check my blog. Looks like I'm safe. ;)

Make sure when you log in that the box that says "keep me signed in" is not checked. That is the issue for most people and should work after that. If not, I tried ;) I think I have a pop up so I'm good! :)

I had the same problem awhile back, a blogger told me to download Google Chrome, and go on blogger from there, it worked.

BTW, I totally came across a blog with comments like that today, and my browser freaked out and refused to load it.
