Regarding anonymous

Just a little announcement. 
After posting yesterday, I looked through the email notifications of blog comments. I have been getting a lot of anonymous spam comments again lately but in the past blogger's spam filter has always been really good at keeping those from actually appearing on the blog. However, yesterday I took a look at a post which was heavily hit this week and found over ten of those comments displayed there... I spent some time this morning going through old posts and deleting spam but I'm pretty sure there's a lot I haven't found yet (mostly because I usually deleted email notifications of spam comments, assuming the filter had sorted them out. So I don't remember all the posts which received this treatment). 
Because this development will make it really hard to manage the spam, I've decided to disable anonymous commenting on my blog. I know there are a few people who leave real, and usually very nice, comments anonymously (as in: they don't have an account to comment from, they usually make themselves known in the text) and I'll be sorry to miss those but I just don't want to risk letting my blog drown in spam. 


  1. I'm getting the same thing! It's so annoying.

  2. That's fine, it's Captcha I really detest

  3. Just instally disqus or commentlove or anything like that if it's all getting too much. Disqus uses akismet-WP's spam filter and it works pretty awesomely. XD

  4. I adore your lingerie ideas, and I'm putting together a designer spring/summer line and could use a partner to help me with the looks. You know a 2nd set of eyes!!! I'd love to do a blog on your beautiful cards, and creative wreaths, and just your overall skills. I love the style of the items, and my website/blog could help you to sell more of them because they are so stunning!.I find new designers, and artists, that create exceptional fashion, accessories, and artistic items. Then I create a professional, and amazing, advertising blog in turn to find my followers new, and interesting shopping spots. You are definitely one of them! I've been a floral designer for 21yrs, and a custom jewelry and hair accessory maker for just over 10 yrs. Not only does this get you, and your products out there to many new faces, and definitely, more new future customers. It get's to my just over 5000 plus members, who are very loyal! It also get's through to my members on sites such as: Facebook, Tumbler, Google BlogSpot, Twitter, Pintrest, LinkedIn, Polyvore, ect. My Polyvore group has over 9,000 followers, and the Polyvore website itself (that I use for a 3rd platform) has millions of members, from all over the globe that will see your products as well. All we ask the blog focus to do is put up a prize or two, (how many is completely up to you. One prize being the lowest offered, and five prizes the most, being offered). The prizes go to the followers that comment on your blog, that are chosen at random. I create the pictures, and information,from your store, estore, boutique, blog, ect., and show your special skills to my followers, and many others to boost the sales of your products.

    PS- I have done a number of blog posts for plenty of Etsy stores, E-Stores, Boutiques (local, US, and international), and they all turned out not only GORGEOUS but professional, and have increased sales for that blog focus.
