About Commenting on the Blog
In case you haven't heard Google Plus is no longer. I had heard this before so I was ready and switched my blog comments back to blogger comments. Unfortunately, all the comments were lost, completely gone. Just like that in an instant!
I hope you don't have a problem with commenting. I love reading your comments!
FYI: I have also had to start moderating all comments because just like that in an instant, spammers have come along. I'd say 50 comments have been left on one post in two days. Where they get the joy from doing that I'm not sure. Eventually they will get tired of it. Not a problem for me whatsoever. Delete and it's gone!
Here is the message we all received on our blogger page from Google:
"Following the announcement of Google+ API deprecation scheduled for March 2019, a number of changes will be made to Blogger’s Google+ integration on 4 February 2019.
Google+ widgets: Support for the “+1 Button”, “Google+ Followers” and “Google+ Badge” widgets in Layout will no longer be available. All instances of these widgets will be removed from your blog.
+1 buttons: The +1/G+ buttons and Google+ share links below blog posts and in the navigation bar will be removed.
Please note that if you have a custom template that includes Google+ features, you may need to update your template. Please contact your template supplier for advice.
Google+ Comments: Support for Google+ comments will be turned down, and all blogs using Google+ comments will be reverted back to using Blogger comments. Unfortunately, comments posted as Google+ comments cannot be migrated to Blogger and will no longer appear on your blog."
Have a blessed day and I hope to hear from all of your soon!
