How to Post a Comment on the Blog...

A few of you have had trouble posting a comment on the blog, so I thought I'd write up some instructions on how to do it and put it over in the side bar --------------------------------------->
so you can reference it whenever you need it! After all, with the recent prizes hinging on leaving comments, we certainly wouldn't want anyone to be left out because they couldn't get a comment to post! So here's what you need to do...

1. Find the post you want to leave a comment on. At the bottom of the post, click the link that says "__ comments" (there will be a number in the blank, depending on how many comments have already been posted.)

2. A new window will open containing the previous comments and a blank comment form. Scroll down to the bottom of the existing comments to see the comment box.

3. Type your comment in the box.

4. Below the comment box, type the random letters you see. This just ensures that you are a real person leaving a comment, and not a spammer. =D

5. In the "Choose an identity" section, you can choose any of the options, but the easiest is to make sure the "Anonymous" option is selected. Click the circle next to "Anonymous" to select.

6. Make sure you sign your name in your comment so we know who posted!

And that's all there is to it! It seems like a lot of steps, but once you do it a time or two you'll see that it is really pretty easy. So go ahead... practice a bit and leave us a comment on this post!
