This Sunday’s post is a guest post from the blog idealizeblog. The YouTube videos and all of the words in the italicized section are part of the guest post.

The Test of Patience and Perseverance

via Daily Prompt: Test

The word “test” can be thought of in so many contexts. Here are my thoughts on test as I feel they relate to my current journey.

I started this blog as one of my assignments when I was back in school for Web Design. So this was one of my tests in learning to customize a template.

I didn’t post on a regular basis until just this past August. I have been testing different content on my blog to see what people are most interested in. I feel my patience has been tested in the time and dedication it takes in learning how to connect with other bloggers and in getting a new blog introduced out there in blogging world.

Comment Help Please

This is a post asking for your help out there in blogging world!

I am having a big problem that I really need resolved. I am a new blogger and I really want to make connections out there, but I am losing a lot of opportunities because of this issue. Here is what is going on, maybe you can help.

When I am visiting another person’s blog, I see this at the bottom of their post along with a number of comments made by others…


Pretty typical, right?! But when I write a comment and then click the “Post Comment” button, it either appears right away, appears and says “waiting approval”, or completely disappears. Of course, the result varies depending on what blog I am on. What I am concerned about, obviously, is when they just disappear.

Some other bloggers have told me they have found my comments in their spam. Some said they never got anything from me. I have been trying to figure this out for weeks and am getting nowhere. I tried contacting WordPress, but there is a message that says they are working on improvements or something for the next 2 weeks, so it sounds like there is no support for 2 weeks.

If anyone has had anything similar like this happen to them or has any ideas or suggestions for me, please let me know. It would be so appreciated!
