Tutorial: How to post a comment

I guess I should NEVER assume that people know how to do something. Here are he steps to posting a comment on a blog. Every blog is set up differently but the basic steps are all the same.

Ever blog is a bit different (color, layout, etc) but the link to leave a comment is almost always at the END of the post. On my blog this is how the link looks. The words PEOPLE CARED TO COMMENT is the link. Just roll your cursor over the words and click using your left mouse button.

Depending on how the blog is set up you will either see the whole screen change or a small comment window will pop up. If you see comments in the window you will need to scroll down to the bottom to find the open window to type your comment in.

You may see this "security" window pop-up. Basically, it just wants to know if you want all of the information to show up on your screen or not. If you say NO the screen will not look like the pictures below. I recommend clicking on Yes.

Type your comment in the window and then scroll down again. You'll be asked to enter an Anti-Spam verification code. Type it into the box underneath the string of 6-8 letters and numbers.

Continue to scroll down. If you are logged in to Blogger or Google you can use that ID as your identity. You can choose any of the four different ID types as your ID. If you aren't logged in to Google or you don't have a Google ID, on my blog you can select Anonymous as your identity. This option is not always available on all blogs.

Once you're done selecting your ID then you click Publish Your Comment and you're done.
You'll be given an opportunity to view your comment but essentially you're finished. You can go back to the blog and continue browsing.

Hope this helps.


  1. Jen this is a test

  2. Hey Jen... hehe I promise not to be such a stealthy looker ... it's such a bad habit. I love to look and see what you're up to. You always inspire me to get that design studio goin..hehe even if it's pushin' midnight and I know I have to be up in 5 short hours...I know I know baad but someone has to be..Keep up the great work!!! :D

  3. ROFL Susan... your test worked perfectly ;o)

  4. Jen,
    Thanks for posting this "How to Leave a Comment." Now I can thank you for all your brainy things which my brain cannot come up with. Especially I want to thank you for posting the tut on how to make a word book.
    Happy creating and scrapping to you,

  5. Jen, I love your blog and I'm sorry you had to change things to make it harder to share. People should just thank you and leave comments, it only takes a minute!

  6. Thanks for the lesson and all you do. It would be such a shame to lose you talent.

  7. I had to learn this the hard way and you just made it easy for people not in the know.
    (Even tho it WAS at the top of your blog - people didn't read).

    Jen has worked hard and so generous of her work for all of us, so please take a moment and
    "Thank You."

    I appreciate everything you do for us because I am non talented creative person. I need to come spend some time with you and learn from the greatest cricut designer.


  8. Thanks Jen,

    I am new to the MB and to this file sharing thing. I love all your work and appreciate your willingness to share.


  9. Yes...all a person needs is a little recognition..and a BIG THANK YOU!!

    Love you JEN (like I said, my husband loves you more)


  10. I have to say, I LOVE YOUR WORK. I have tried to post comments when I have downloaded, but I can't say for sure that I have done it EVERYTIME. You are extremely TALENTED and seem to always be up for a design challenge.
    Thanks for all of your HARD TIME CONSUMING WORK!

  11. Jen,
    I thank you, for all your wonderful creative hard work, and most of all for your willingness to share. It's too bad it has come to this, but that's ok...I think it may be better this way. Now you'll know that your files are being used by those of us who really appreicate your awesome work and are really making use of your incredible cut files. I thank you again, with all my heart.

  12. I hope this isn't a double post but...

    I hang my head in shame. I have downloaded from you blog and not left comments because it seems I have to cram so much into my computer time. However, lack of time does not excuse lack of manners.

    You are very talented and generous to share your talent with those of us who can only admire what you do.

    I am sorry to be a part of the problem. I will now try to be part of the solution.

    Again, Jen...thanks for sharing

  13. Hi Jen,
    Thanks for showing how and where to leave a comment ( I'm not that computer savey) I enjoy all you share here and one the cricut MB.
    You are very talented!!

  14. People really do suck! How hard is it to just say Thanks! They can't be bothered to design their own things so they take yours and don't Thank You!
    What losers.

  15. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. You do truly impressive work and I appreciate everything. I am a confessed scraplifter and I need people like you in my life.

  16. Just droping by to say Hello!
