Hey Beautiful People! I got banned from commenting on WordPress ALL day yesterday.  A lockout that no one at WordPress could figure out.  A bummer as yesterday was one of my days off from my part-time day job and I have SOOOO many art project deadlines to meet in getting my art biz flowing; as well as being very behind in blogland visits.  Tech help was exceedingly nice, apologetic and eager to help but kept making the same suggestions:

clear your cache, make sure Your cookies are set to unblock, try it on a different device, try another browser, update Your browser, reboot Your wifi, stand on Your head (just kidding!), etc. The problem simply didn’t show up at all on their end.

This all started about 6 in the morning. FINALLY, after literally HOURS of doing everything they suggested and everything I could think of over and over and over again, I wrote tech support one more time.  The Lady I got suggested she send me a her personal test page for me to comment on.  No one else had tried that.  All day.  She sent it. I commented and VOILA!!!! She discovered my comment was sent to spam.  So she went to work on it.  Turns out ASKET, for whatever reason, had decided I was a robot.  I’d tried to translate a comment I’d received right before this happened and from the get-go, early in the morning, told tech support I thought I’d been locked out because I did that.  I was told that probably wasn’t it.  The last lady I chatted with, the one who figured it out, thought perhaps that HAD been the problem but wasn’t sure.

So….learn from my long, kinda wasted day….

Don’t ever copy and paste a comment into the google translator.  It will be misunderstood as pirating and cause You a lock out. AND, if You ever do get blocked from commenting, for whatever reason, before anything else ask the tech to please send You THEIR PERSONAL test page for You to comment on.  This is very different from when they ask You to comment somewhere and send them the link.  I did that straightaway with the first tech and it helped nothing.  The problem didn’t show up for her. They have to send You their personal test page and then it’s perhaps easy for them to spot the problem.  

In the end, around 12 hours later, I was able to comment.  At the start of this leeeetle adventure I was far behind looking at all Y’alls wonderful work! Now I’m farther.  But I’m still a fan!!! I’ll be around! Thanks for Your continued support, friendship and patience!!!

Huge hugs and Cheers!!! 🙂

    1. Hey Abdul!!! Thank You!!! I am beyond honored! 😊 I love Your blog and Your fantastic energy/outlook on life! I hope You will forgive me but I’m going to have to pass as I can barely keep up with blogland right now. Working part-time, arting my brains out on my days off to get my little biz running and just daily keep-up of life have me looking a bit like a cartoon character at the moment. I know I’d drop the ball, but I sure hope You know You just made me so happy!!! My feelings won’t be hurt if You give the wonderful honor to another! Thank You SOOO Much! Sending Huge Hugs!!! 🤗💖☀️

    1. Thanks Isabelle!!! I became a very cranky junk eating cave woman during the process. I’m happy my man was at work and there were no cameras around!!! And…funniest of all….I, for some reason I’ve blocked out at the moment, kept having to make up new passwords. They became funnier and more full of cusswords as the day went on. It is now absolute profanity but I’m letting it stay that way as it makes me laugh! Cheers!!! 😄

      1. Haha that’s fun Katy! I know how it feels, the funny passwords! Can’t help laughing myself. Sometimes I do similar things too and I laugh at midnight when I think about it 😆🌟

  2. Wow what did we do before all this technology ? Thank God someone was able to find out what the problem was. This technical stuff can be too much. Hope the day goes better for you. Have a good weekend.

  3. I always make sure to inform my followers or whoever has commented on my blog, when their comments ends on my spam. I glad you’re able to comment now.
    When we are unable to login to our platform(my work). We always get that, clear the cache, history……. stand on my head hahaha. That was funny.
    You were able to do that in the meantime. The lady painting it is so cute. And thank you for sharing that useful information. I wish you bright sunny Friday.

    1. Aw…Thank You, Hanna! It was pretty comical. I turned into a five year old and downed some popcorn, ice cream with fudge and a cup of blueberries. Just because?!! 🤣 Thank You for the sweet love and prayers! I send them to You, as well!!! Huge hugs! 🤗💖☀️


  4. what thing this I use the direct translator, and so far I’ve had no problems. but I know a lot of follower comments end up in my spam – I’ve been slow to find out – and I wonder if mine are not going to spam as well. Thank you very much for the warning and help.
