I’m not quite sure whether:
a) all my readers are crickets
b) most of my readers moodily brooding my great long tracts on life in the silence of their own rooms
or c) just don’t know where the bloody comment button is.
I’d like to think it’s (c) because a few people have moaned a bit at me about how difficult I’ve made it for them to comment.
I don’t know how to change it because I’m about as technical as a block of gouda, but I’ve done a little tutorial here instead. (oh god, the lengths I go to, to get people to comment on my blog. If this isn’t a cry for attention, I don’t know what is).
So here we go. At the bottom of each post, there is actually a whole lot of other magical blurb that’s in this really fancy designer-y light grey, which designers might like but, I realise now, most readers won’t.
If you send your mouse pointer over it, it lights up a little bit in its attempt to be slightly more technicolour (the tacky red arrow is mine to show you what I’m talking about, d’oh could this be any more idiot proof??)
Then, see that little speech bubble thing on the right with a (+) ? If you mouse over that, it turns a dark grey (it’s very technologically advanced). Like this:
Click the bugger.
And he will bring you here, where you can then write lots of lovely things to me:
There’s my Very Simple Guide to commenting on this blog.
I’m so sophisticated I amaze myself. Truly.
Now please mouse-y your way (haha geddit? Mosey, mouse-y? haha) down below and try it out.
Mouse. Click. Comment. Post.
Thank you in advance for all the wonderful things you’re about to say to me.
