Hello, friendly readers, and a good Wednesday to you. In the seven months that I've been blogging, I keep hearing these words (or some variation of them), "I tried to leave you a comment, but it was hard so I gave up."
Listen. I feel your pain. I am no friend to the technology myself. I tried to blog from my phone once, and it ended badly. Like, an episode of Criminal Minds badly. Blood everywhere. I jest, but honestly, it did not go well.
If you've never left me a comment and have no intention of doing so, well, that hurts a little, but I get it and I can deal. I read blogs on the daily, and I'm not trying to comment on all of them.
But if you want to leave me comments and have been deterred by some difficulty or other, this post is for you. I'm going to do my best to break it down, and BONUS: I even took pictures. So let's see if this makes any sense or helps anyone. Here we go.
You're on my blog, and you're reading through my most recent post. If you get to the end and you don't see a place to leave a comment, you probably never clicked on the title of the post and if you continue to scroll down, you will see the blog post I wrote prior to the one you just finished reading. It'll look something like this:
At this point, you have options. Option 1: continue perusing my posts and laughing hilariously at my one-woman side show. Option 2: click out of my blog and move on with your life taking a piece of my sad, dejected heart with you. Option 3: decide to make my day and click where it says "1 comment". Depending on how many comments that post has or has not generated, the 1 may be a different number. Doing that should lead you to a screen that looks like this:
Here's the part where you need to pay attention. Before you start typing your comment, I recommend that you select your profile. When you click on those arrows, you will see this drop down box:
And if you want to leave me a comment from your phone, good luck because I haven't figured that out yet.
If this was helpful, use that newfound knowledge to leave me a comment below, and have a fantastic day.
