Google Is Acting Up: I Cannot Leave Comments on Many Posts

Something odd is happening on a number of Blogger-based blogs that I read regularly: the comment feature isn't working!

For example, Sabine of Kleidung um 1800 has a wonderful post on antique writing desks...and I wasn't able to tell her how much I loved hers and its purple writing surface, and that I have one too, which once belonged to a young woman of my hometown. She had signed in her name in several spots inside the box, testing her handwriting skills, and left her pen nibs inside. To that collection I've added childhood letters and cared, and I've carried that writing box with me most of my life and hope to pass it to my children to add their memories to.

Or Hallie of At the Sign of the Golden Scissors, with her post about muslin gowns embellished with silver plate embroidery and other "goldwork". Those gowns are so hard to find...the only picture I'd seen of one until she wrote was a drawing in Gail Marsh's 18th Century Embroidery Techniques. Good sleuthing as always! Again, I couldn't comment.

So, if I seem silent, or you do, please know that it might be Google kicking its heels a bit...

Very best,

Hi Natalie,
do not worry, I've had the same problem some weeks ago...and as sudden as it appeared it was solved, when I switched my browser!
Thank you very much for sharing the story of your writing box - I was so happy when I found mine on the antique market :) And I especially like all the inkspots!

Natalie I have had the same issue and the solution I was recommended is to not chec the 'leave me signed in' box in blogger. So, you would log out, and log back in, unchecking tht box. It means that every day I have to manually log in, but it works. Not sure why or why blogger hasn't solved this problem which is seriously impacting bloggers everywhere! All the best!

Thank you, thank you! Aha, then. Sign out, sign in. Check. I will do that. Check age of browser. Aha...mine is old. Need to update it.

So glad I asked. Thank you again,

(feeling a little better)
