A little bird – umm perhaps it was an Ortolan Bunting 🙂, mentioned that they had difficulty with the comment thing. No worries me lads and lassies, WordPress offers several ways to leave a comment, thought, question or whatever is on your mind sort of thing.

When you click on the icon for Facebook, Google+, or Twitter, a new window will appear from that service asking you to log in and approve giving your information to our blog. This window is controlled by Facebook, Google+, or Twitter for security reasons. You can be logged in to different services at the same time, in which case you will be able to choose which identity to use when posting a comment by simply clicking the appropriate icon in the comment area.  Easy right?

If you are a WordPress user you would/could log in via your WP identity. Even easier.

You can also choose to leave a comment as a guest if you prefer. To do so just fill in your name and email. Your email will not be displayed (made public), so no worries there. Your name can be your single name, a combo name or a nickname.  Of course it’s helpful if we recognize your “name”.

The first time you leave a comment that comment has to be approved by the comment empress and after that one time all your future comments will be posted automatically. If you change or can’t recall the name you used, WP will think it’s your first time and make the empress approve your comment. So if one time you comment as Billygoat and the next time you forget and use Billygoats, WP thinks you are two different people and makes the empress approve both comments. So save the empress some work- no- cancel that -don’t even worry about that name thing- she needs to know what’s on your mind, so write your comment, thought, question or whatever and keep the comment empress (she’s also the blog empress as you may have guessed) entertained and happy.

Finally, to steal an idea from the ARG organizers (check the next post for explanation), if you haven’t left a comment before, try it; you’ll like it!  If it doesn’t seem to work well for you, let me know. Thanks!
