ARRRGGGHHHH this is all so frustrating.
My blog friend Michele of I Card Everyone discovered and told me that I had become a no-reply blogger. I was surprised but probably shouldn't have been. In my comment to her, I did not check the box for follow up comments. I was fearful that I would then get all the comments after mine on her blog emailed to me.
So as a test I added another comment with the box checked she got my comment via email and I did begin getting her visitor's comments which posted after mine.
Unless you have a google account your options to post a comment are limited to as anonymous, which is horrid unless the poster includes their name in the comment so you know who it is --- or as name/url which requires the comment maker to add their name and url to post a comment...which I am sure will get old for that person very quickly.
I'll admit it, the comments are what makes blogging fun, interacting with those who comment.
I might get a card made today...after I stop pulling my hair out.
Thanks for stopping.
