Blog commenting issues

If anyone is having issues leaving comments on other people’s blogs, (the process 
being so slow just lately), my friend Liz posted about this yesterday.
She passed on a great way to change the settings on your blog which Brenda
 had discovered and is certainly worth reading and then changing as she describes.

I have changed mine and hopefully it will make things a lot easier for everyone.
