It took under 5 seconds to appear. Everything is working fine. As soon as you comment I'll delete my two comments. Keep trying!

Clearly you are on this page, otherwise you would not see this. If you are reading it then, well done, you have got to the right place.

Now follow these easy steps:

1. Under Leave your comment at the top right you will see a blank square.

2. Type your Comment in that blank square.

3. Under the square you will see Choose an identity. Leave the green dot in the top one, (your blogger display name). In other words do nothing, leave it as it is.

4. Don't bother with Preview until you are more used to sending comments. Preview is very useful but not strictly necessary.

5. All you do now is click the blue button cleraly marked in white Login and Publish

That is all there is to it, believe me it could not possibly be made simpler.

I am a hell of a typist: never was taught it! The school thought Latin and G reek were more important. I wonder?? any input from you??? about this??

By Jove, you've got it! Now, on you own, try using the Preview button. This let's you see how your message will look so that you can check anc correct it before sending. Practice this on your own.

Yes, I did try to study Latin, but it was all Greek to me. :)

Dutch girl, we call them buttons because they light up and activate when you put the mouse icon on them. There is no magic to it. run your mouse over the page and see what lights up then LEFT click and see what happens. If you click on the pictures they will double in size as an example. try everything you cannot break it. cheers.

I had second thoughts on my last comment Dutch Girl. By lighting up I mean the mouse arrow changes to a hand, that means it will activate. If you see the hand appear LEFT click and see what comes of it.

The 'hand' is a Microsoft Windows icon. You will see the regular Mac icon, but not when you click. It appears when your mouse pointer goes over an active object.

Don't worry about that. Now you are getting the hang of it try the Preview option. You will see the finished result, but your text remains in the box for editing.

Then use Preview again after editing, and then click on "publish this comment" in blue in the Preview window.

Dutch girl, I can see this being the longest thread in the world. Try some of the other stories now by going down the right hand side of the main blog page and putting the mouse arrow on the heading as an example:- The London Interlude or Rimini, any of them if you have a comment click on, Then Read the story, then go to COMMENT ON THIS STORY click on and make your comment REMEMBER TAKE IT SLOWLY. Cheers.
