I am befuddled, and I should put that in my profile and on my resume because that pretty much describes who I am. But now my befuddlement has reached its peak.
I like it when things are straightforward and not a lot of thinking is required. But this here Blogger thing is going to make me start drinking.
All I want to do is leave a comment on another person's blog. That is all I ask. When I get into this blog site I sign in with my Google account name and password, and that is pretty simple for me. Then I begin reading someone's blog and I get all animated and excited about leaving a comment. I hurriedly write with enthusiastic brilliance and click on PUBLISH. But then it asks me to provide an account and even provides a drop down list for me. I don't know why it asks this because stupid Google should know who I am. But I play the game and click on GOOGLE ACCOUNT, hit PUBLISH, and my comment disappears!
Okay, I try again...but I am less enthusiastic. I re-write the comment, only this time I choose NAME AND URL from the drop down list. It asks me what my name and URL is.....and I cautiously provide this information. Then I click PUBLISH.....and the damn thing disappears again.
Okay -- maybe that particular blogger's comment thing is screwed up, even though they have nine comments from other people. I go to someone else...and run into the same problem.
1. Start drinking.
2. Reboot my computer. I don't know why. Every time I call IT at work for a computer problem, they tell me to reboot my computer. It didn't work.
3. Maybe the blogger doesn't like me and has set up barricades and won't let me in. So consider Option 1.
4. I am targeted by Google, the NSA, the FBI, and QVC and they are coming after me. Perhaps I should just go outside and raise my hands above my head and shout "I give up". But if I did that Marilyn would holler, "While you're out there go ahead and take down the Christmas lights".
5. Ask for help. This can cause extraordinary befuddlement because someone is going to say, "Boy are you stupid. You are supposed to....." and I will feel really dumb. Or even worse, someone will say, "What you need to do is go into your registry and delete all references to NSA and then type in '\\**neo-repair//' and then pull your motherboard and reset your xfd memory stack -- but be sure to ground yourself or your toes will tingle. Then I will feel even dumber.
I am hesitantly asking for option 5 and hoping for the best.
All you blogger people think I don't like you because I am not commenting. 'Tis not true...well, pretty much not true.
I thank you in advance for your solution presented as if you were talking to a fifth grader.
