The Cat's Meow

There are so many thing I just do not know about Blogger.  For instance, recently I opted for "Comment Moderation."  Why?  Well, to tell you the truth, there were two reasons.  Spam was the first reason and the second was that I noticed so many bloggers had the message return "Your comment will be published after blogger approval" (or something like that) when I left a comment, I thought maybe I should follow the crowd.  

Hesitant to change it because I know that sometimes my schedule doesn't give me much time to jump on email, which is how I assumed I would "manage" the comment, I clicked on the "Save Changes" button.  Boy was I totally WRONG!  When I sign in to Blogger, there's a little tiny message that tells me "comments waiting."

Gosh, trying new things when you're older is the cats meow!!

Now, since I don't have a cat any more, my real mission today was to show you

The Sycamore

Isn't it the cat's meow?

Finally, before you leave, check out this picture of a painting I found hanging on the wall in Cabella's.  (I wish I knew who the artist was to give them credit, but I was elated that I found it.)

The Ducks (another cat's meow!)

I do not mess with blogger...they make me crazy. I am so afraid of losing my blog and files...that I usually leave things alone. I wish you the best. You are more computer savvy than I am, I am sure. Blessings to all, xoxo,Susie

Firstly, the photos are great. A stately tree and lively ducks.
Secondly, Thanks for the explanation of comment approval. I'll pass on it for now since I don't have a spam problem at the moment. In fact since 'Google Gate' (my term) those that follow me have taken a dive. But I 'followed' my friend connects with Google+ so I am still keeping up with everyone and get lots of comments by linking with memes.
Isn't life grand? Well come to think of it, it is :)

I have that comment moderation for my own blog and I like how it works. Blogger tells me when I log in, as you mentioned, how many comments are waiting moderation. I approve of 99 percent of the comments, but it does catch the occasional spam which I do NOT want to allow. That is a lovely sycamore, and art work of the ducks too.

I haven't had much of a problem with spam. It's been a long time since anything has gotten past the spam blocker. I have noticed a lot of blogs switching to comment moderation though.
Love the shot of the tree

Fabulous shots! I'm on Wordpress so don't know anything about Blogger.
There are a lot of things I don't understand about blogger too. I tell myself that learning more would be a good thing, but then go and do something many things to do and finding time for all is a challenge. Like yourself, we are busy all the time.

Hello JP, knock on wood I have not had too much trouble with blogger. I do get spam and I do moderate my comments and just delete the spam. The captcha's thingys get on my nerves but blogger said they are keeping it to be rid of some of the spam. I like the duck photo and your beautiful tree an sky shot. Happy weekend!
Hmmmmm.....I still get an email when there's a comment for moderation and I read the comment and choose whether to delete it or publish it. I like comment moderation because there are some "different" people out there.

I certainly don't get enough comments that it takes much time to do. Perhaps if I posted more, huh? Have a good day.

I have it set up to moderate comments more than 14 days old. To leave comments I believe it's set up for people that belong to blogger only. I did that years ago when I was getting lots of spam. I'll probably never change my blog layout or the header. I did it years ago and no longer remember how. With my luck it would be messed up forever if I tried anything new.
