- The Time the article was posted. Click to see the article with the Comments listed afterwards. At the end of the Comments is a link to Post a Comment which you can click to post your own.
- The word Comments with a number after it, which indicates how many comments there have been. Click on Comments to see other comments and to post one of your own.
Either way, here's how to post a comment:
- Clicking (as described above) will take you to a place to type your message.
- You may choose to sign into your Google/Blogger account or post as Anonymous. Although Anonymous is allowed, we encourage you to get a Google Account. (See below for how.) At some point, we might have to disallow Anonymous comments.
If you don't have an account, look where it says: “No Google Account? Sign up here." Click on that to create an account. Only Google will have this information - it is not sent to us.
- You will be asked for a username, a password, a display name, and your email address.
- Your username is how you login to Google, and it can be anything you want. However, I will warn you there are millions of people registered, and you will have to come up with something unusual.
- Your password can be anything you want, so long as it is at least 6 characters long.
- Your display name is what is shown when you post a comment, and it can be anything you want. It doesn’t have to be the same as your username. This is what can make your comments anonymous, because no one, including me, knows who that is.
- After that, it will ask you what you want to call your blog. You can leave that blank and click on continue.
That’s it! Once you’ve done that, your comments will be posted to the blog for all to see with your Display Name as author.
This blog is moderated. That means that comments have to be approved prior to being posted. If your comments are irrelevant to the article, use profanity, or contain scurrilous comments about others, they will not be published. Comments typed in all caps will not be published. Comments with extensive grammatical and spelling errors will not be published. However, your opinion will NEVER cause your comments not to be published.
Remember, unless you use your real name for your display name, no one will know who said it.
