Okay folks - it seems that the Powers That Be (those that like to complicate our lives beyond all reasonable expectations) are monkeying about with our blogs and how they work. It appears that something is happening with the European Union called the GDPR. I don't know about you, but I haven't a clue what they're blathering on about. I've read a number of things about it, but unless you're fluent in computer-eeze it's all as clear as mud. If you understand it and know how to deal with it using Blogger I'd sure appreciate a tutorial in language that makes sense. If you would/could email me that and give me permission I'd love to share it on my blog so others could make sense of it too! (marmic1954 AT hotmail DOT com).
In the meantime, the thing that seems to be affecting me most at the moment is that your comments are not showing up in my email box, which is where I am able to answer you easily. I haven't yet figured out how/if I can answer directly on my blog (I know some bloggers do) and although I don't like having to do it that way because it means an extra step for you, it appears it might be my only option. So.....if you don't receive responses to your much appreciated (and very anticipated!) comments in the manner to which you're accustomed, please forgive me....and blame those idiotic Powers That Be!!!!
H - E - L - P ?????
EDITED TO ADD: I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to respond individually to your comments directly on my blog without having to post a whole new comment that then doesn't link directly to YOUR comment. I hate this!!!!!!!!!!!!! Until I get this figured out, please know that I AM getting your comments, I AM reading them, and I AM appreciating them. I have my blog set so that I have to moderate comments in order to avoid all the spam I keep getting, so if it takes a bit for your comment to show up, that will be why.
Anybody know how to fix the commenting issue???
