No Comment(s)



I debated on whether or not to actually post about this because I truly believe that everything happens for the best, therefore I need to let go and move on.

However, I also believe that sometimes you need to take a brief moment to vent before you can let it go.

So, here’s my brief moment….

As most of you discovered on Tuesday, I had some major shitola going on with my previous commenting system. Such as, many people not being able to comment, and comments disappearing into cyberspace.

Well, to say the least I freaked. I couldn’t remember how the hell to uninstall it and then reinstall Blogger’s commenting system. I spent several hours trying various things and then finally figured out how to do it.

ALLEUIA!

Now let me preface what I’m about to share by saying that I totally knew from the beginning when I installed IntenseDebate, that once I started using it, if I were to revert back to Blogger’s system I would lose ALL comments made through IntenseDebate, so I take full responsibility. And I would also like to share that I think the features they offer on their commenting system are awesome.

(that is, when they feel like working)

But, apparently they still haven’t figured out a way to export comments for those of us who use Blogger. And apparently from all the glitches I’ve had with this system since the beginning, IntenseDebate is NOT compatible with Blogger.

Which brings me to my question…

WHY are they listing Blogger as a compatible platform when in fact it doesn’t really work? And you better believe I sent them an email and asked.

(I still haven’t heard back yet, and I‘m not holding my breath)

So, I would like to say to all of you who use Blogger, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE INTENSEDEBATE.

Comments are a HUGE part of blogging, therefore if an outside system is not 100% compatible with the various blogging platforms it CLAIMS to be compatible with, then it shouldn’t be listed.

I would like to thank all of you who left comments on this blog since last December when I first installed IntenseDebate, and apologize for having lost them. I feel like I’ve been robbed of all the wonderful conversations we’ve had. It's truly sad. However, just know that I appreciated all your thoughts and words on previous comments.

Again, I only have myself to blame for this, because I knew.

But, hey….you live and learn, don’t you?

Ok, now that I‘ve vented, it’s time to let go and move on.

*deep cleansing breath*

Letting go……

Bye-bye IntenseDebate.

Pftttttttt!



Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha!




Have a super weekend everyone!

  1. I agree with you - blogging without commenting is no blogging at all. These little wordy pieces of verbal cupcakes make our day sweeter and encourage to go on even to yet crazier adventures.

    Have a sweet weekend!

  2. Ahh, don't worry about it. We don't have to see our old comments. We know that you leave us the BEST responses to comments anywhere in the blogosphere and that's all that matters. Stewie says so, too.

    Have a great weekend, Ron!

  3. Hey, shiznit happens, right?? I'm sorry you lost all the wonderful comments and reponses you have posted in return but your blog continues, and here we all are too! Ready to leave you some more love!!!
    I did try to comment on the last post a couple times but it didn't go thru.
    I was saying that Rick did a marvelous job on your Wicked Stepmother makeup. I am sure you had so much fun playing that character.
    And soooo Joan. LOL Speaking of... one of the drawings had you looking a little like her too. Hmm... the last one I think.
    Must have been a wonderful experience and I enjoy hearing about it all. You've had some good times, that's for sure.

    Enjoy this glorious day! xo

  5. Awwwwww.... ((((((((((( Ron )))))))))))

    Lemme tell ya--I don't blame you one iota for being upset with the whole packaged lie resulting on the loss of comments for the past four months. It's the stuff that relationships are made of, eh? Or has been a part of it. But let me remind you it's just a PART of it, yaknow?

    Ain't nobody going nowhere cuz some stupid, packaged lie ripped off the comments.
    Oh well. ;-)
    And pffttttttttttt!

    Seriously--I lose comments to the Blogger Moof Monster. I rawrrrr about it and I surrender to Moofy needing to eat once in a while. LOL After goshknowshowmanyyears doing this deal, making the connected relationships I've been graced with.....a morsel Moofy's way once in a while ain't really a high price to pay, huh?

  13. Good Morning Akelamalu!

    Thank you so much for emailing me on Tuesday to let me know, cause I really appreciated it. Certain people have had commenting issues with the other system several times, but it was only occassionally. However, Tuesday A LOT of people did, so I thought it best to switch back. Glad to hear you never had any problem, other than the last time.

    Thank you for stopping by, m'dear!

    And again, thank you for letting me know!

  18. Well My God! I can't believe everybody but me knows who you are. Kathy and JD sent me over here because they were talking about you and I said who's Ron I don't know this guy and they said oh you HAVE to meet Ron, so here I am and I'm so glad to finally meet you and I feel so behind for not knowing who you were before today and I hope you can forgive me for taking so long to get here.

    So....hi!

  19. I recently switched to Disqus and it appeared as if I lost all my comments. I was in a huge panic for several hours because they said they would not lose the comments. They all came back and everything is good now but they really need better directions and then explain how it might take some time to transfer all the old comments over. JD is in the process of doing the same thing and she went through the whole panic too. Sorry you lost your comments. The comments people leave on my site are always better than anything I could write in a post.

  20. Whew, I actually looked at adding Intense Debate on mine but figured I was better off staying with what I had--you know if it aint broke don't fix it but that has never stopped me before either Ha Ha

    Well one thing Ron now that you have lost all of the comments I don't feel too bad because now you no longer have all of that blackmail stuff against me anymore.

    Seriously I agree that the comments are a big part of our blogging world and I do feel bad you lost that part of our history, but we will just have to add a new chapter Buddy.

  24. Good Evening Jen!

    OMG, isn't that the most horrible thing, to lose comments? However, I am SOOO glad you were able to retrieve yours....whewwww!

    It's funny you mentioned Disgus because I was looking into them before I decided on IntenseDebate.

    Unfortunately, they are not set up to export the comments made with their system back to Blogger. They're mainly a Wordpress system, but CLAIM to be compatible with Blogger and other plateforms. But, I don't think so.

    "The comments people leave on my site are always better than anything I could write in a post."

    I agree, that's why it upset me so.

    Oh, well...this is one of those times in my life that I just gotta move on and let it go. I'm really okay with it now.

    Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your support. I really appreciate it.

  25. Helloooooo Jimmy!

    "but figured I was better off staying with what I had--you know if it aint broke don't fix it but that has never stopped me before either."

    HAHAHHAAHA... I know what you mean because I'm the same way - always trying something new!

    So, my advice is to stick with Blogger. It ain't perfect, but neither is anything else. Wordpress to me, has the best commenting system around, but even they have glitches now and then.

    "I don't feel too bad because now you no longer have all of that blackmail stuff against me anymore."

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    "but we will just have to add a new chapter Buddy."

    Thank you for sharing that, because you're absolutely right!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and for your supportive words, my friend!

  26. Well Ron as I have told you before..I am a computer dumbo so what you wrote above was almost like reading Proust...in French. That is I am lucky I know how to post on my blog and comment on others. Something simple like that rocks my world. Don't worry about the lost comments...I know they are swirling around that great brain of yours. You must have some little special compartment next to you humor section and creative one where you stuff in all the memories.If not...well then you must store up a bunch of new ones. And you are right...without the great feedback from others, blogging would feel really empty. I have decided next to expression of feeling it is the best part of the whole thing!!! Have a great weekend too and on to new blogs and new comments!!

    "That is I am lucky I know how to post on my blog and comment on others."

    Listen, it really doesn't matter if you don't know a lot about computers because you are such an INCREDIBLE writer, dear lady! Honestly, you express yourself so beautifully!

    "You must have some little special compartment next to you humor section and creative one where you stuff in all the memories."

    You're right, all the memories are there!

    "without the great feedback from others, blogging would feel really empty."

    Exactly. And can you believe when I first started this blog, I had comments closed? What was I thinking!?!?! Comments are the BEST part of blogging.

  30. Buh-bye, Intense Debate!

    I'm sorry it didn't work out. I'm considering Disqus because I do like the nested commenting. Still, as others have pointed out, WordPress's commenting system is really not bad.

    So . . . maybe c'mon over to WordPress? We'd love to have you!

  32. I have to say that I'm kind of glad that you've gone back to the old way. I liked how I got responses directly sent to my e-mail from you but it was a pain in the ass logging in every time. It's just because I love you so much that I put up with it. You are worth it.

  33. Helloooooooooo JD!

    Buh-bye, IntenseDebate!

    HA!

    I know you KNOW what I'm talking about because you also tried ID and got rid of it.

    Grrrrrrrrrr....!#$?

    I've seen Disgus on several blogs that I visit and it seems to work well. Yes, that's the one thing I REALLY REALLY liked about ID - the comment threads. It makes it so much easier to respond to each comment.

    I actually think Wordpress has the BEST commenting system out there. I still have a blog over at WP, but I really don't post there much.

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, JD! Always so great too see ya! Hope you're having a glorious weekend....X

    OMG, I know it was a pain in the ass for you, and I soooo appreciated that you commented inspite of it. You're a TRUE buddy! Thank you.

    There were several other people who said the same thing, so I'm really glad I switched back.

    You can still receive email responses through this commenting system by clicking on "subscribe by email." It should send my response to you just like the other commenting system.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend!

  36. Even if I had to scratch a dull crayon across a old piece of tree bark and send it off by carrier pigeon to leave you a comment I'd do it.

    Losing all those comments is mucho sucko for sure. I sometimes go back over old posts and read what people have said. It can be interesting to look at them a few months later isn't it?

    You keep posting ... we'll keep commenting!!!!

    "I sometimes go back over old posts and read what people have said. It can be interesting to look at them a few months later isn't it?"

    OMG, I can't believe you said that because I DO THE SAME THING, I sware! I really like to sometimes randomly pick a post and reread all the comments. It's funny, because sometimes you'll see a comment from someone who may no longer comment, and think, "I wonder what ever happen to them?"

    To me, comments are the VOICE of the post.

    That's why it truly SUCKS AN ELEPHANT DICK that I lost them.

    Oh well....Pfftttttt!

    HA!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, and for being such a loyal friend, Jeff.

  46. ah ron, firstly i don't think i commented yet on this even tho i read it in the reader...so if i did, ignore one that makes least sense...as always it's late and now, i am in w/d so sort of goofy as it begins to let me have my brain back bit by bit, slowly slowly, sweating from every pore kind of thing.......i feel so badly you lost your comments, that's just so pissy for it to do that to you after you gave it a try and decided it didn't work for you....ah well, remember it's what's in the heart that counts and yours is as big as the sky so plenty of room for them there and in your spacious, wide-open mind to keep them too....so no worries, dear sweetpea....all is well and to bed i go now,,,well, really i am in bed with lappie, listening to hubby noises, ahem, and must sleep, turn on coast to coast, dribble brabble, stupidity stuff but it mindlessly puts me to sleep in an hour or less....so don't fret about comments, just have everyone leave three instead of one for a month and then, you might have gotten all caught up.....you think? ;) i thought it a good idea but maybe not. love to you, dear man that you are....how about i call you sweetknees instead of sweetpea or sweetcheeks, it's more manly...sweet...think about it....i willl check back.my♥to you always
