This is a post I've been wanting to write for a while. Blogging is a very social medium, and is designed for interaction. There are a few basic tips you can take to help this process out for yourself and for those who visit your blog. Now that blogger has switched to "new blogger" I thought it was a good time to write this, since a lot of the tutorials for this stuff I've seen in the past are now a little out of date with the new format.
1. SAY NO TO WORD VERIFICATION!!!
You may have seen this campaign on Ashley's blog and a few others, but its worth repeating. The captchas (which are the codes you have to put in in order to leave a comment) are really difficult to figure out sometimes! There have been times where its taken me 2-3 tries to figure it out, and honestly if it takes any more than that, I'll give up and not leave a comment. Everyone loves getting comments, so why not make this process easier!
