“Let’s Talk” is something new I’m trying here on Epilogue. It’s basically a time where I can have a heart to heart with all of you awesome people. Hopefully it’ll be a time where we can interact and share are thoughts and feelings!
Over the last two months I have been around to a TON of different blogs whether to join giveaways, participate in a meme, or just because I think they need a little stalking. As I go from blog to blog I notice a common theme that drives me up a wall. Comment. Word. Verification. When I go through a giveaway hop I may hit 40 blogs in a half an hour (okay maybe not quite that many) and on most of the stops a comment is required. Even if its not for a giveaway most memes require a comment and when I'm just coming to stalk your blog I usually like to leave a little love.
It usually takes me around 5 minutes figuring out what to say, how to phrase it, and what emote to include with it before I’m ready to post. I don’t need to spend another 3 minutes trying to decipher what random letters are displayed to “prove that I’m not a robot”. Half the time they have something weird like “Ltepighrn” only it’s italicized and has different font sizes so the “rn” at the end looks like an “m”. Then I have to spend another 3 minutes figuring out the next one! Well maybe you have the word verification turned on for a good reason. Maybe you have been spammed one time to many times and have just had enough? I (grudgingly) accept that. BUT if you just didn’t think to uncheck it, or left it on before you had a spam problem I urge you to reconsider. I know I have a much happier experience when I don’t have to worry about it!
What do you see that gets on your nerves? Do you use or like the word verification feature? Why or why not? Who knows maybe you’ll win me over...
