Bad News . . . Good News . . .

The bad news . . . I have been in a tizzy!
The good news . . . I  think I figured it out.
I have been having "fits" over not being able to comment on some of my blogs.
I love staying connected and when I can't write a comment
or write back  to you after you may have commented to me, it makes me

I would comment on some blogs and
I would be right in the middle of a thought
it would lock up and I was frozen, couldn't do a thing. 

I mean big time frustration. 
First of all, why was it happening,
 second of all, was the time it was taking to return to the blog,
try again and sometimes again and again. 
Finally today I had had it!. 

 I usually read blogs on my ipad and comment from there as well.
I recently received a comment and an invite to visit a

I went for a visit, started to comment and the same thing happened again. 

I wasn't upset with the Joyful Cottage, it is a delight. 
 I love her cottage photos,
her header is wonderful and her husbands art work is beautiful.  
Pay her a visit and tell her I sent you!

 The frozen comment thing was what was making me upset!
I was so frustrated and my straight hair was frizzin!

I spoke to someone at the Apple Store  about this a few weeks ago.
He said it had something to do with the differences
in script/font from one blog to another. 
I don't know if this is true but today I was so frustrated
trying to leave comments that I rushed
to my lap top to see if I had the same problem.

Working like a charm.
Why haven't I tried this before, not sure.
I do most of my posting from the lap top yet
the ipad is so easy to use., (usually) and easy to access.
Plus all of you that I read
are right there at my ipad finger tips. 

All is well, it is good news, I am happy
I can comment to each of you without frustration!

I see trees of green . . . red roses too
I see em bloom . . . for me and for you
And I think to myself . . . what a wonderful world.

it is the little things in life that sometimes make the biggest difference

well, sorry the ipad is not playing nice, but glad that your regular pc is! :)

Sorry your IPAD doesn't do it for you but so glad you have your laptop as a backup!

Oh Lynne, that's too funny. I'm so glad you figured it out though. Hugs, Pamela

I think maybe it was not just ipad but the whole community of blogging/commenting. I've heard many report today of problems.

What a coincidence! I thought something was awry with my new iPhone - it would do the same thing during comment attempts. No problem with the laptop (Acer) either. So it must be some little glitch with the Apple products. But I do love Apple and dream of an iPad someday:o)Of course Blogger seems to throw us for a loop with their "improvements."

Thank you for visiting earlier & I do appreciate your comment - even more now knowing how you persevered!!

God bless you, Lynne. I totally understand computer frustration. Nothing gets my BP up like a problem like yours. Thanks for hanging in and getting a comment posted on my blog. I really appreciate your sweet comments about A Joyful Cottage and I'm happy to be your friend. :) Hope your computer problems are over and looking forward to reading more of your beautiful blog.

Ok Here goes... Commenting from my iPad . I can't seem to comment to Barb's blog but can to you! Confusing isn't it? It is a wonderful world, Lynne, but we'll always have bugs! Love, Penny

Technology... it's a love/hate relationship for most of us! We love it when it works and hate it when it doesn't! Glad you figured it out...

Connie said...

I'll have to check this one out.
Thanks for the heads up on Comments.

Once on a while, I get a comment from a blogger addressed to someone else. I try to send it there, and they say NO. I try to send it back to the sender, but that's a no reply, too.
Am I alone here ?

Computer's are so moody !

I'm behind in all this gadget stuff...I'm just so grateful to have a computer that is still working ;) I'm glad you got things figured out. Thanks for stopping by yesterday and leaving a was nice to 'see' you. I hope your day is a good one.

The comment problem used to happen to me alot. My hubby adjusted some of the security settings on my laptop and it is no longer a problem. I do not know about Ipads. But I know how frustrating it can be, believe me. Glad you got it figured out.
