Hello to all of my friends that are new to blogging and eager to pick up a few tricks. Today I have three important words to share with you:
Disable. Word. Verification.
You know that pesky box that pops up when you leave a comment on another blog? It's called Word Verification and guess what: that same annoying box is probably popping up when people want to comment on YOUR blog. It is a default setting on Blogger so unless you turned it off already, it is currently irritating your internet audience. Fortunately, this is a very easy tool to disable and this will make your followers very happy.
I posted instructions for disabling Word Verification a few months ago, but since then I have learned a new method for turning this feature off that's even faster and more convenient. Before we begin, A QUICK NOTE: I wrote this blog post while Kinder-Craze used the Blogger platform. Since then, I have changed platforms to WordPress. This post is intended for Blogger users.
Today I'm thrilled to share 2 new video tutorials with you! The first video provides a quick demo for disabling Word Verification. The second video shows how to check your blog's Spam folder (which you should do occasionally) and delete any spam comments it may contain.
