How many times since I started blogging in 2011 have I signed in to make a comment on another blogger’s post and all I did was click on the little ‘W’ for my name to appear and I would make a comment? That’s the trouble; when one does something one way repeatedly and has tunnel vision.
So my issue with not being able to comment on .com sites is because I only tried ‘that’ way to sign in! ….. Tunnel Vision!!!!
It took the patience of my nephew (who is more like a brother as we grew up together, me being only 18 days older than him) to demonstrate that the frustration I’ve had for so long, needn’t have been.
Today, when I showed him the comment process, he asked if I could just enter my email at the bottom instead of selecting the ‘W’ for WordPress. So, I did that and lo and behold after entering my email my WordPress information appeared and I was able to comment. In my head, that way of signing in was only for non-wordpress users and so it just never crossed my mind.
Did I mention he is very smart…. and I am ‘not’….
We get so set in our ways, at least I do, that often times I don’t see the forest for the trees. How many times relating to other areas of my life, do I do that? Maybe some of you can identify as well. Perhaps the way we only want to do things the way that we’re used to doing, and when another option is presented, we really don’t want to know about it, or change.
Anyway, the case is closed and I am so happy for all of you… as you don’t have to hear about it anymore… Of course I am ecstatic. While I do not know why the WordPress toolbar does not display on .com sites, I no longer care… it will remain a mystery. As long as I can give my 2 cents worth of comments.
Thanks ‘G’….. Diane
