Are You Having Trouble Commenting? Me too!
I am so thoroughly frustrated, very much so.
I blog, and really love doing so. I don't have much time to do it though. I love receiving comments; gives some purpose for the blog beyond record keeping,and feeds my social need in its unique way.
I love reading other people's blogs too. I also really like commenting. Because commenting does take time, I do not do it as often as I would like. I am, however, determined to do better - especially with those who do take the time to comment here. But...a big huge fat BUT....I have run into a snag. A big huge fat SNAG that is leaving me incredibly frustrated.
This frustration started about a month or so ago; I blew it off. Now, I am finding myself ridiculously frustrated because I truly, truly, truly want to leave comments, but guess what....leaving comments via my iPad or iPhone onto any Blogger blog is just NOT happening. I have figured out the issue, I think, through trial and error.
Blogger and Safari (using my iPad and iPhone) just are not on friendly terms. I have determined that they are simply not playing nice together, and instead of working it out, they have decided to act like brats and not talk to one another! Ugh! Big huge fat UGH!
So here is what I have discovered: I can comment on Blogger posts while on my ipad IF I am using the Diigo Browser. No issues at all. NONE! Well, except for the fact that whenever I hit a link via email, Sarfari pops up. Safari is my default browser and I cannot figure out how to change that. Also, all my bookmarks are on Safari. I guess, my "Internet life" has been wrapped up with Safari, and so the untangling of the two is very time consuming as I have no idea how to do it. I am determined though. If Blogger and Safari (using my iPad and iPhone) do not figure things out and start playing nice again, well then,I have no choice but to dump Safari.
For now, I just have to go the long way around; copy and paste from Safari browser to Diigo browser the blog's address, and then comment away. Big huge fat PAIN in the butt, and so I do not do it often.
Just to note, when I am on my desktop, I do not have any issues between Blogger and Safari; weird. However, I am hardly on my desktop as I have found that I can do about 95% of what I need to do on my iPad.
Soooo....Am I the only one with this issue? Please, tell me that I am not.
I know that I cannot be because at least I know that my best friend is having issues too. But, I also want to know about you --my blogging friends and those who read my blog.
And oh, if your using your iPad right now, and want to comment here but find it difficult to do so then please download the Diigo Browser app. If you don't want to do that, but still want to give me some feedback, then please email me at email@example.com

P.S. - if you have any advice for me as to how to fix this problem, if there is a solution, please do share as I would love to know. Thanks.
