Since I published my last post Of Ditzy Days and Doof Moments yesterday, I have been wondering why has there not been a single comment coming in. I mean, here I am trying to follow one of the blogging guides of asking a question at the end of a post to get comments, and yet, there was zilch interaction!
Several likes and not a single reply to my post? What did I do wrong, I wonder! I was beginning to think that either those “guides” are just shams or that people just really could not be bothered to comment. To save myself any further embarrassment, I figured I probably should just stop posting a question.
Thanks to Stu, I’ll restore my faith on posting a question for the next time. Because, if not for him letting me know via one of his own posts that he had tried to leave a comment, but the doofus comment box was asking for a password, I would be clueless. This happened before I remember, and it took a few kind bloggers (thank you!) to let me know of the problem.
It turns out that the horrible gremlins were at it again. This time, it was the plugin “Spam free WordPress” that was causing the issue to prompt the commenter for a password as it was stated in the error message. With the help of my dear friend, Amalina, the plugin was duly removed or it would have taken me days to get round to that.
Grrrr…I’m pissed! I mean, not only do I not have the luxury of time to figure out the whys behind it, I was also disheartened that this happened on the day when I decided to end my post with a question! WTF!Talk about yet another ditzy day and doof moment.
It’s all in good order now. So if you had intended to comment yesterday and can’t because you were prompted to key a stupid password, give it another shot on my Of Ditzy Days and Doof Moments post. Tell me your ditzy-doof moments because I am.just.dying.to.know. Restore my faith in all the blogging gurus that posting a question tactic at the end of post works to get comments. Damn right, I’m shameless!
If somehow you still can’t, pop me a message A.N.Y.W.H.E.R.E you can. I’ll be eternally grateful.
