#Apologies fromMe and a Big #ThankYou from #Michael Thompson – #CommonplaceFunFacts

Yesterday, The Write Stuff featured a terrific blogger (Michael Thompson) and his fantastic blog, CommonplaceFunFacts. I’d like to thank everyone who posted and to apologize for the problem Michael ran into with trying to respond to comments, or even to leave one of his own. For some reason, WordPress just wouldn’t let him do either.  I still haven’t figured out what the issue is, but please rest assured that all of your comments were greatly appreciated!

Michael would like to thank each of you for taking the time to comment and for the encouragement. He hopes you all enjoy your visits to CommonplaceFunFacts, and that you find it interesting enough to warrant return visits. (I’m wagering you will, as I know I sure did!)

In the meantime, I’m going to continue to try to solve this problem, as I’d very much like to have Michael join us again for future posts now and then, and I also want him to be able to comment on any and all posts on TWS, and to be able to respond to others who enjoy his visits.( Wish me luck in solving this issue!)

And thanks again for checking out both Michael’s wonderfully entertaining post yesterday, and his equally entertaining, informative, and fun blog, too! Be sure to visit when you get a chance. You’ll be glad you did!

  1. I haven’t been able to “like” any WordPress site posts or comments for a few weeks now. And I have to sign in every time in order to comment. Something is definitely going on, and it isn’t just your site, Marcia. Hoep they figure it out soon!

    • I knew you’d been having problems “Liking,” Kass, and haven’t been able to figure that out, either. I’m guessing WordPress updated something, somewhere, and it is impacting those of us who don’t know what to do to stay current with it. If I find any info, I will share it. Also, if you haven’t already done so, you might check out Olga’s link above. I’ll be heading over there soon, too. 🙂 ❤


    • There seems to be an epidemic going around! I sure hope we get some helpful answers, and SOON! Too much time spent on blogging to have things falling apart. The last thing we bloggers need is something that makes it difficult for our followers to ask questions or respond to posts. Hope you get an answer, and that it will be something really useful to all of us.

      Good luck! 😀 ❤


    • Sorry to hear that, Teri, but maybe WordPress needs to put out some guidelines for what to check when you start having these problems? I’ve never experienced these before this happened yesterday, and I’d really like to get it sorted out. Hopefully, between us, we can find answers to some of what’s going on. I’ll share anything I discover, for sure.

      Thanks for stopping by! 😀 ❤

  2. One of the things I see going around lately is that specific sites (perhaps it’s a particular theme?) will only take the comments as “anonymous” rather than identifying the blogger. The curious thing is half of the comments list the specific bloggers, and the rest are “anonymous.”

    • Wow, that’s weird, Pete. Thanks for sharing. I’m seeing a theme here (and not a nice, decorative one!) I’m so glad it wasn’t just my blog or something odd that happened to Michael out of nowhere. But I’m sure not happy that this is going on, and we have to deal with us. These kinds of things discourage our followers and aren’t a good situation on all kinds of levels. *sigh*

      Thanks again for sharing today. Have a great ThorsDay! 😀

    • I’m definitely getting that feeling, Craig. Something’s wrong, for sure. At least I’m glad to know it’s not only my blog, or just something happening to Michael. I do wonder what it will take to get it all sorted out again, or if there’s even anything we can do about it on our own blogs?

      Thanks for weighing in on this one. Yep … definitely seeing a pattern developing here.

    • I had my first encounter a day or so ago, Jan, when the “Submit” button vanished before I could leave a comment on Gwen’s blog. I closed the page, reloaded it again, and the second time, it stayed put. (I copied my comment first, so I didn’t have to start from scratch, happily.)

      I just wish Michael had been able to respond to everyone’s nice comments on his guest post Tuesday. I hate for that to happen to any visitor to TWS, so I do hope things are getting sorted out.

      Thanks for taking a moment to add to the discussion on this issue! 😀 ❤
