A Blogging Tip
Some bloggers have experienced problems when using their Google account to comment on certain Blogger blogs. I was one of them (and I still am). Maybe you can comment on one Blogger blog just to visit the next one and experience log-in issues. Blogger may keep asking you to log in (even though you are logged in!) and when you log in, nothing happens. I don’t know why this happens but I did a little bit of research and found out that blogs with comment form “Embedded below post” most of the time cause commenting issues (that are annoying and frustrating and may result in less comments on your blog). To prevent this, you should opt for the “pop-up” or “full page”. You can change comment settings by going to (Dashboard) Settings>Comments>Comment Form Placement.
Another way to encourage comments is to disable word verification – very annoying! No one wants to type those letters. Plus, it doesn’t really make any sense unless you have hundreds of comments daily that may produce a lot of spam comments. If you want to have control over your comments, chose comment’s moderation option instead. Also, allow anonymous and Name/Url option so that people can leave you a comment even if they don’t have a blog.
