Week 451 - Butterflies (and a word about publishing comments)

I am just hijacking Wendy's post to add a note about the recent commenting problems many of us have been experiencing on Blogger, this info was passed on to us and seems to speed things up by simply changing one of our blog setting from the default one of embedded:

In the settings on your blog select 'posts, comments and sharing, select 'comment location' and from the drop down menu select 'pop up window' then save. 

It's as simple as that, we have tried it out and it certainly does seem to help no end for those visiting our blogs, so the more we spread the word the better it's going to become for all of us. Now back to Wendy to tell us all about this weeks theme................

Good Morning, Wendy L here to host this wonderful challenge of...........

*****Butterflies********
