How do I comment on your blog hop?


We’re glad to hear you’re enjoying our blog hops and we’ve heard when you say you’d like to leave us the comments we’re asking for but how? 

 
Yes those comment buttons can be tricky to find - here’s hope this guide will help.

First of all we hate spam as much as anyone else (unless they’re the ones doing all the spamming).  To combat this there are times you’ll have to prove you’re not a robot.  You may have to answer a simple maths question, sometimes you’ll have to enter the text from a picture and sometimes it will come up that the author will have to approve your post.  This is just us trying to reduce spam on our blogs so please bare with us in that regard.

Quite often a box will come up and you’ll be asked to add your name, email address, url (such as a blog address if you have one) and then you can post your comment.

We know all this can be a drag but it really does only take a few seconds.  We value your feedback and comments and appreciate the time you take to make them for us.  So how do you find the button to write the comments?  We each use a blog platform that suits us best and not all of them are the same.  Below I’ll list how to find the comment buttons for the people who joined us for our last sale-a-bration blog hop.  For those people who’ve joined us recently and aren’t on the list, this should give you a guide at least to find the comment button for other blogs.
 
Bernie Collins uses BlogSpot.  Scroll to the bottom of her post and you'll see:
 

Click on the word comments and it will bring up a box for you to add a comment. 
 
Jacque Williams - scroll to the bottom of her post and you will see a box to add a comment.

Alicia uses Wordpress too but you'll find her comment box at the bottom of the post. 
 See how tricky that one was to find.  Click on the 19 comments (wow she did well) and leave her a comment.


Finally there's me.  I use BlogSpot and you can find a comment box for me at the bottom of my posts. 

I hope you have found this guide helpful and that it makes it a little easier for you to post comments on our blog hop. Enjoy the next hop on Monday 26th January at 8pm.
