One month before my four year blogging anniversary, I’m happy I chose WordPress and I love the friendly community. I learn more about the software, blogging etiquette and myself each week. However, I’ve 3 pesky gremlins that pop up now and again.
Gremlin # 1: Mysteriously diminishing numbers; People leave for greener pastures, I understand. What’s mysterious is when a blogger friend unfollows my site unintentionally (later refollows and comments they missed me and had no clue how they were unsubscribed…)
Gremlin #2: On a friend’s site, I begin to type a comment but a dialogue box comes up after four or five characters asking me if I really want to leave the page. (I don’t.) Cancel, almost type, dialogue box… Endless loop, no progress. Quit to maintain sanity.
Gremlin #3: I read someone’s post and want to respond. Although I’m following them and already signed in, surprisingly the comment box requires that I sign in to comment. Asking me to sign in again is a way a third party can get my password. I know that from experience. It’s not my friend that’s the problem, it’s the gremlin! Maleficence begone!
Do you have any of the same gremlins? How do you make these problems vanish?
Write me at the flaming mailbox!
Thanks! ¡Olé! –Rebecca
