I'm begging... remove the word verification!!!!!!!
Happy Monday friends!
Have lots to talk about and catch up on but I have a favor to ask....
Please friends... please... I am begging you to remove the "prove your not a robot" thing off your blog. I promise... you don't need it.
It is a default blogger setting so unless you have turned it off... I bet you have it.
Blogger changed the look of it recently... the words are longer, there are two now and they are much much much much harder to read and I am tired of not being able to read it and spending minutes trying to leave comments because I can't figure out what in the world it says. My frustration level with the new word verification is through the roof and I will soon enough just stop commenting on blogs that have it.
****Added based on comments -And just read the comments below, I'm not the only one who won't be commenting on WV blogs.
In the three years I have been blogging a Spam Robot has never gotten through. Not to mention I have only ever gotten 5 spam and they have all been caught by blogger and dumped into my spam folder. And I am a relitively high traffic site with my email available right there on the right for bots to steal.
You just don't need the word verification!
*****Added in response to comments - No. I don't use comment moderation either. As you post a comment to go to my blog it goes. I do not approve them. And STILL a spam has never made it through! :)
Please Please Please remove this unnecessary feature from your blog and also repost this asking your fellow bloggers to remove it as well. You will lose comment's if you keep it there.
For instructions on how to remove it... plus how to remove other annoying features from your blog... go here:
I am divorced mom to three wonderful daughters and a Marmmie to three beautiful grandsons.( Thus, the name Marmmies Mammy's and More). I am a self taught artist who has been crafting and sewing since I was a young child. I have also taught, and made ceramics for many years, until I became disabled. I started getting involved in doll making a few years ago when I became disabled, and my last little bird left the nest. When she left, I had a hard time figuring out what "Me Time" was. I quess some might call this "Empty Nest Syndrome". I always knew I had a calling for something, but could never figure out what it was. Then one day after going to a craft show with my oldest daughter, she asked me to try and make her a primitive mammy doll. Needless to say I agreed, and from that day on I have become hooked! All the pieces in my "Me time" puzzle finally fell into place. I now use my talents to bring smiles to others through my creations and my dolls.
