Are YOU a robot?

If you’ve ever tried to leave a comment on my blog before, you know how easy it was. That was a good thing. 🙂 And a bad thing. 🙁

Good for you; bad, in the end, for me. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had ‘moderation’ in effect for my comments. That meant I would get an email telling me someone had left a comment and I’d have to go to a specific place to approve your comment. No big deal. Until.

Starting a few weeks ago, spam bots found my blog and started leaving comments. They built up over time, ending up being 5-dozen-plus a day. That meant 60+ emails and 60+ times I had to go somewhere to mark those comments as spam. So I had to find a way to stop that.

I worked with my tech-helpful web host, and added 2 tools. Now you have to enter your name and check a box that you are not a robot in order to leave a comment. I promise to try and get back to posting more regularly, and hopefully you’ll continue to comment, even though you have to jump through a hoop or 2.

I’d love to include relevant images with this post, but relevant ones are all online and I don’t want to get dinged again for illegal use. So here’s a photo of my son wearing a Tshirt I just love. Isn’t this a perfect message?! He is clearly NOT a robot.
