Sorry this is longwinded posting, but I need you help.
Since returning to Blogger in the past few months I've had a few hurdles that I hope you can help me with. I follow all the blogs I've been reading through the Blogger Dashboard. Since I've discovered so many wonderful new blogs (new to me) in the past couple of months, I've discovered that the Blogger Dashboard has a 300 Blog maximum that you can follow and then it will not allow you to follow more, unless you delete some of the blogs you are following. Now sorry, but that just won't do, delete blogs, no way.
So I did a little searching and realized if you went to Google Reader instead, you can "subscribe" to more than 300 blogs (Okay so I'm at 697 blogs now!) This is where my problem lies. I realized at first when I added more blogs to read in Google Reader, that I was then able to read them through the Blogger Dashboard.
But lately, some of the blogs I've been following for years in Blogger Dashboard are not showing me all the postings from these blogs in Blogger Dashboard. I like the appearance of Blogger Dashboard more than Google Reader (oops, sorry am I allowed to say that....lol.) So I check Blogger Dashboard, and then I go to Google Reader to see what I've been missing. That's a nuisance. I would like to see all the blogs I am following "or subscribing too) in Blogger Dashboard, is this possible.
Another thing I notice is that some of the blogs I "subscribed" too in Google Reader show me as "anonymous" and not under my name, Wanda. Now let's face it, I don't want to be "anonymous", especially when I leave you a comment, you may delete it!!
Lastly I noted in my comments section of Blogger Dashboard that there was a spam folder. When I checked in the folder, I noticed that some followers comments to me had gone in there. Simon, all your comments were there, and I moved them to the original folder. Simon I know you had said that you couldn't comment on your own blog, maybe it's because your comments are also in your Spam folder.
I know when I leave comments on some blogs, you have to add two words that you see on the screen to prove your comment is not Spam. I find some of the words, are extremely difficult to read, and sometimes I have to try 2-3 times before I get one right. Do followers have to do the same thing for my blog? I know some blogs don't have this. Is it because there is someway to disable this feature. It's a real nuisance. It must discourage some folks from leaving comments.
I've tried googling these problems to see if there is anything I can change, but really haven't found any help. Has anyone else experienced these problems?
I've fairly computer literate, but these new problems are challenging me. Hope you can help me.
Until next time.....
