Google + comments gone

Where are we today ?
Rock Glen Resort Arkona Ontario

         Well I tried out the Google + comments on our Blog and loved the interaction that it allows, but have found that my comments have dropped drastically as a lot of the people that did comment do not have Google + accounts.
         So I have switched back to the regular comment system so that anyone can now comment.
Hope this helps those who do not want to have a Google account and wish to comment.

         What are your thoughts?

  1. I wondered about that. I certainly can't understand why someone would use it if their comments are limited.

    1. Well I tried it and like the concept but not like the fact that commenters are forced to get a Google + account.

  2. It does not matter to me at all. It was fun having the quick interaction but I was getting tired of my mail box filling up with replies. I like to go back later in the day or even the next day and read your replies. Perhaps give it a try in a few months when more people catch up to Google+. I need to have a tech come in to set it up for me and right now that will have to wait until April. I don't have time before we leave.

  3. I prefer letting anyone make comments,so I guess I won't make any changes.

    1. That's why I went back to blogger comments.

  4. Meh, whatever works for you. I only noticed that my comment did show up right away, so for those who need "instant gratification", then I guess that's a good thing. However, if less people are able to comment, the go back to the old system. I still have the "old system", or at least it looks that way.

    1. I have changed teh settings as well so that the comments show up right away as well.

  5. Well, I never got around to making the change. Guess I'll just hang in there for awhile. Since I have a Google + account I have no trouble commenting on anybody's blog.

  9. Whatever works best for you is o.k. with me George. I think it will become a moot point soon anyway as I do believe that being a member of G+ will eventually be mandatory on Blogger. Might not be for a while though so folks may as well enjoy it while they can.

    1. Rick I do like the way it works, but guess will be a wait until it happens.

  10. I went through this a few weeks ago with Google + comments & stuff. Didn't take me long to get back to what I was most comfortable with. Newer is not always better.

    1. Well we do what works and the older system sill works great. Hope you can get things figured out!
      Will stay here as long as we can.

  12. Rick says it's a moot point but if enough people start giving feedback to Google that they don't want to be on a social media they might be smart to leave it alone. Sorry to say I won't Google+ or Facebook so just leave well enough alone. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Well there will be a time eventually that you will have to give into Google + if you want to Blog, maybe just not yet.

      Delete
  13. I like going to just one place for blogging and comments. Google+ doesn't thrill me ... too public (although I changed my setting to just people I know) ... I wonder if that even works.

    1. It work really well if every body goes on the system

  14. I'm going with the old system as long as I can, it's true newer is not always better, sometimes just more complicated.

    1. Yes it is complicated but can work well someday.

  15. I tend to,agree with Rick. Bet before long it will be required, somimdecidedmto,let it happen now. Unrelated, however, I made your yams and apples and roast pork loin on the Weber Q. Thanks big time. It was a huge hit with our company!

  16. Requiring Google+ for blogger may force me to pick a different blogging site.

    1. Thats why I took it off. But Blogger is still the best Blogging site in my opinion.
