Right now, I am sitting on twenty four (24) good (in my opinion) post ideas (and about 60+ of what I consider average ones). I know what to make, I know how (well, for the most part) and I know what to show.

I tried all the options given under the “comment as”, with invariable failure.

What I didn’t know was that the rare times I successfully posted a comment, the blog owner could not reply to me. So, I found a few tricks to fix that.
