Commentary

Hi there, Lurkers. Time to say "hello, Stupid!"

Of all the things you could say about me, "shy" is definitely not on the list. And I am not shy about liking interaction on a Blog, that's for sure.

I have been getting emails telling me that people can't comment on this Blog, and I'm not sure why. I like comments, and I won't lie. Hey, it's half the fun, so...

If you come here and read, why not give commenting a shot? I'd love to hear from you. If you like what I say, agree or disagree, hate what I say, please let me know. I'm not 100% sure why this Blog isn't taking comments. I'll just offer some quick tips here if you're having a problem.

Down at the bottom of every entry, you should see this:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Click on that.

Then you should see this:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

1. Enter whatever comment you'd like, then 2.if you don't have a Blogger account, you can still comment without passing any information along to anyone.You just click the "ANONYMOUS" button

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

3.After you check the Anonymous button the screen will look a little different...that's fine. It'll work.

4. Then just click the "PUBLISH" button, and your comment will be added.

I'd really love to hear from you on here. I like what other people have to say, and it's not only to say you agree, or like what I put here. If you don't like the blog, or disagree, I don't mind hearing that, too.

And if you're just a "lurker", it's always nice to hear from someone, so, Lurkers, today is the day!

Hope this helps. It gets lonely in here sometimes.

  1. Wouldn't it be nice if some of those lurkers came out of the woodworks?

    I'm with ya', making comments and reading others' is fun.

    That was nice of you to leave step-by-step instructions. Although, I have to admit, I tried leaving an anonymous comment once and it didn't do it. So, I don't know.....

  2. hello! st j, heya heya heya! i just came across this journal (man, you are everywhere, grin). oh, and when i first attempted to leave a comment just now, the screen went blank and i had to reload in order to get this form to come up. it seems i had some problems with blogger before, may be one of the reasons i canceled my account with them. it's good to see ya dude, debra

    Jimmy, I'm a semi-lurker...sometimes I lurk and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I feel like a nut...sometimes I don't.

  10. Ordering me around makes it really tempting just to go on my way and leave no comment at all :-P

  11. Careful Annie, I can make very annoying 411 calls :)

    Michele is one of the all-time greats. I feel just a little safer knowing she's around there with a bat to keep me in line

  13. Sharlene, you are welcome, lurker or not :) Another all-time great!

    Umm, Kelly, how long do you know me? Do I EVER order a woman around...or is it vice-versa? Of course, we're both close enough that I can still call you a brat. :-D

  17. Hi Jimmy,
    Seems like maybe you're migrating from the AOL blog to this one? I guess one benefit would be that Google isn't serving up those pesky ads at the top of its blogger's pages the way AOL does!
    Best,
    Marty

    Looks like you have an all out fan club of lurkers here, Jimmy! Can't say I'm surprised... I've had issues commenting in blogspot before... Let's see if I've wiggled my way in successfully this time ~

    With Hug,

  24. Desperate over here are we dear heart. It's strange that way. People don't know I keep a mirror blog on this sight too (Maybe that's why NO ONE ever comments).
    Let your readers know that sometimes they have to empty out the cookies in their server otherwise they will just keep getting kicked off. (Hugs) Indigo

  25. Hello, you silly, lovely man. I hope you're not ordering me to comment, because you'll be cleaning my house!
    I love your blog, and I don't comment because I don't want to. Seriously, though, I don't because I can't measure up to some of the people who do.
    I better see a comment from Niki soon too!
    Love you, when are we going to run the marathon? Or maybe you can just massage my feet after I do, loser!
    Love you. Call me. Just not now.

  45. Dang! What a cool post! :)

    I was just commenting on someone else's blog--who had written a post similar to this. She was looking to beat someone's record of 53 comments....and it looks like you are pretty darn close. ;)

    I commented on her blog that I've been wanting to write a post like hers and yours--but I worry that no one will comment!

    ;) hehe.

  47. Seriously, jimmy; Is this a contest to see how many comments you can get? Are you screaming for some attention ;-)

    Some of these are repeat offenders, though, so I'm not sure if that counts.

    And, you don't have to beg me to comment; you know I will.

  51. I swear I commented on this post a couple of days ago and mentioned that I had never had trouble commenting before. Ironically, this may be the first time it didn't work for me. Either that or I got interrupted and forgot to submit the comment. That, too, is a very real possibility ;)
