How to Leave a Comment

While I don't know who all is looking at this blog, I know that there are a few of you who visit regularly who are probably not all that familiar with blogging. I don't receive a lot of comments, but the ones I do receive are truly appreciated. They give me the feeling that I'm not talking to myself! Anyway, I was thinking that there may be some who do not comment because they either do not know how or are confused about privacy issues, etc.

If you are worried that your name or, worse yet, email information will appear, NEITHER WILL SHOW or be accessible from this blog. If you leave a comment as a blogger, your blogger name will show. If you leave a comment as anonymous, it will show anonymous. If you comment as anonymous and want me to know who left the message, you can sign it using your first name, your initials, or a combination. Example: Jane D. or J. Doe or J.D. Here's how to do it:
  1. At the bottom of every post you will see something like the following: Posted by Kathi Carlson at 12:01 AM 0 comments
  2. To leave a comment, click on the '0 comments' link.
  3. The next screen will show you all the comments for that particular post as well as a box on the right hand side of the screen where you can type in your comment.
  4. This step asks you to choose an identity and gives you the following options: Your Name if you are already a blogger and have a blogger ID or Anonymous (remember Anonymous IS Anonymous).
  5. Finally, you can preview your comment if you wish before clicking on 'Publish My Comment.' Comments sometimes take a few minutes to view on the blog, so don't worry if you don't see your comment right away.

Thank you for taking the time to review these instructions. I hope they encourage anyone who hasn't tried the comment option to give it a try. Where yours be a comment, a question or a request, I'd love to hear from you!

Hi Kathi,
Just found your site after seeing the address on the ctmh site. I am adding this one to my favorites. Thanks for listing how to leave a comment. I am still not that computer literate. I have to say your work is truly lovely and I will be back again. Sue

Kathi - You are the first blog I have left a comment on! But as a fellow granny - I had to leave a note and say - your work is terrific! Very inspiring. Yes - I too play with CTMH - but obviously can learn a thing or two from you! I already shared your blog with another CTMH consultant AND your use of the Window Charms. I have two grandsons (7 & 5) and they would get such a tickle out of the shaker cards - what a great idea!

I am here in Germany with son, ddil, and two grandsons.

Great work - Kay

This is the first time I have read or replied to a blog. I saw your snow globe card on the BB and it is awesome! I found your site address there also and after reading your profile we have a few things in common. I am 51 years old, have 2 sons and 3 grandchildren (2 girls and 1 boy). I also love scrapbooking, stamping, photography and reading. I live in the midwest (MO)and I'm extremly happy the snow has not found it's way here yet!!! I will try to return here as often as possible. I really enjoyed your site

Ok, I just saw your blog address on CTMH and had to stop by because I always love your artwork :) You have a lot of beautiful treasures here on your blog--including your beautiful grandkids! And I definitely know what you mean about talking to yourself out in cyberspace--I often feel like that. I have a counter on mine, so I know people are stopping by, but very few comment!
