I've noticed recently that the Disqus comments on my blog are, shall we say, temperamental... basically it would show up as and when it felt like it, and more recently, just not at all. It'd email me to notify me of your comments but when I'd look at my blog the comment section (i.e Disqus) was nowhere to be found! Cue frustration!
The final straw was when someone actually took the time to message me and say they'd like to leave a comment but couldn't.
I then had to make a choice... not be able to see the comments that have been made on my previous posts or continue to work with Disqus which means that some people can't comment when they want to (and I have no idea how many people this has affected but I know it's happened several times when people have bothered to tell me, not to mention those that didn't). So the decision was made. I've disconnected my Disqus account from this blog.
Cue more frustration... the reason I use Blogger is because I'm not practised in HTML. I've dabbled but just with the little things. Could I get a comment link to show at the bottom of my posts? Could I heck!! Well after a load of stressing I've found that I can add it back into each of my old posts individually. The good news is that from here on in I've come back to Blogger's own system. In fact in the time I've been away they've installed the feature I left them for (i.e being able to respond to posts!).
So here is my apology to all of you that have taken the time to comment on my other posts but can't see them now. Believe me I have read and appreciated all of them and I promise not to mess with it again in future! I can't cope with the stress of thinking I've broken my blog!!
