I get asked a LOT for blogging advice.  As much as I would love to answer all of the questions I receive, it isn’t really my platform and I certainly don’t know as much as it may seem I know!  I am thrilled to now be able to point my readers to an awesome resource, a new eBook, Intentional Blogger,  written by Nikki Hughes & Leigh Anne Dutton. I obviously have not had time to read every page of this 250 page eBook, but I have browsed through most of it, and it is something I wish I would have had when I began blogging! 


Intentional Blogger is guide to help Christian bloggers grow their blogging ministry.

This eBook was written for two groups of people:

  • Beginner bloggers who want to start building on a solid foundation

Woven throughout the pages of this eBook, readers will find Biblical encouragement along the way that cannot be found anywhere else.

Bloggers who use Blogger…

Word Verification on Blogger

I always visit blogs who link up to Tot School, and Moments to Remember.  I don’t always leave comments, but often I try.  When I go to leave you a comment on your blogger blog…

and I see this…image

I just delete my comment and move on.  I know many other bloggers who will not leave comments on blogger blogs with word verification turned on too.  It is very difficult to read and not worth the effort of missing it many times. 

So, how do you turn it off?  From your Blogger dashboard…

Settings ~ Posts and Comments ~ Show Word Verification = NO

Please, please turn this off!  If you are concerned about spam, I recommend turning on comment moderation, so that all comments come to you via email before they are published. Another option is to install a 3rd party comment system, I use Disqus now and used Disqus when I was on Blogger too

On a funny note, as I was going in to take screenshots and get the how-to portion, I noticed that in a couple of my blogger blogs {they are private and ministry related} that I had word verification ON without even knowing, so it must be a standard thing.  So, many of you might not even know that it is turned on for your blog!

A HUGE thank you to all of you who take the time to turn this off so I can easily leave you a comment when I visit your blog!
