Day 39

I am messing up my days! 39 already? I almost saved my picture under 38 thinking that was getting far. Wow.. we're doing great, you guys! I honestly wanted to do this and stick with it, and I am pleasantly surprised that it is getting done.
The hardest part, I've realized, is keeping up with comments on other people's sites. I want to SO bad! I spend a lot of time hunting down the ones I follow. The only problem, is the commenting board itself. I'm so sick of typing in a code! I wondered if I had it too, after some searching, I found.. I can turn that stupid thing off! 

If you go to DESIGN, SETTINGS, COMMENTS, scroll down, then it asks you
Show word verification for comments? check NO


I am crossing my fingers hoping others will do this too. That will make commenting more pleasant for all! :) *hint, hint*

I do need to read my manual more, but it's getting boring. Am I alone in this department? There are several things I am looking forward to trying out, but oh yeah.. there cannot be a blizzard outside! 

This is bascially SOOC only added a vignette to it (darkened the sides a little bit to focus on those ploomy guys).I loved how they were dancing in the wind. Looked a bit like it could be underwater to me. You know, all those sea anemones?

I'm surprised to see these in the snow...looks more like something that should be in the sand.

Misty said...

Very pretty! They DO look like they are dancing.

I know what you mean about the codes. They do not stop spammers, either, so I don't see any advantage to them. I have the pop up window for comments, because it makes it easier/faster for people to comment on multiple blog posts. (You still have yours set to codes, btw.)

Kara said...

nooo do I? I wonder if it takes a while? Going back to make sure.. or I'm a-callin' Mr. Blogger!

Lynn said...

I just posted as 38..I'll have to go back and see where I've misnumbered! Love the 'dancers.' Very neat shot!!

Beautiful glow! I am with you on the comments thing. I turned my verification code off a while ago. Please tell me if it is still on!?! My issue with comments is I want people to know I appreciate them, but sometimes I fall behind thanking people. I cannot imagine people who get more than 50 comments each time they post! That would be exhausting. I think the best thing to do would be thanking everyone in my next post. What do you think?

Love the shot! Totally agree with word verification.

I simply can't stand the codes, when your in a rush to get to as many blogs as possible, and keep running into codes, I some times, and I hate to say it just, don't leave a comment, so often it says not the right letters try again...ahhh, I run screaming from the page.
Love all of your snow pictures BTW.

Amen on the word verification! I just wrote a post about this last week :O) Great minds!! I love this photo and am a huge fan of vignetting myself!

Chelsea said...

Wow, cool shot! I love the wind in it!

Christi said...

I will head over right now and disable that verification. I haven't noticed that it stops spammers at all, so I'm not sure what the point is.

I love the detail on the plants, beautiful and delicate looking.

Beautiful as always. :-)

Love the creativity of your shot today. I turned off my word verification a week or two ago when someone posted about it and I appreciate when others do the same, so thank you. I think what Jennifer was talking about is the pop up window vs. commenting below the post like you have it set now. Go to Settings, Comments, and then choose Pop Up Window under Comment Form Placement. It's another thing that ultimately makes commenting easier.

I hear ya on the keeping up with the comments! I try to get as many done as I can while I'm eating breakfast (thank goodness I'm a slowwwww eater!)

Beautiful picture- I love the contrast and the movement the little fluffy guys show!

Anita said...

Yep, I am off by a day, don't know where it happened, but it did. Codes drive me nuts, especially when I am using my smartphone. This is a super cool shot, love the color against the black.

I love the motion in this photo!

This is very pretty. Love the colours.

Very cool shot!

Love this!
