Hernando's Hideaway doesn't like me.There are several blogs on my blogroll that use WordPress. I love to read these blogs, and I have a lot of respect for the authors.
It would be nice to be able to comment on them, though. Only people who log in to WordPress and have a username and password can comment.
I've got a WordPress username and password, but it doesn't work very well. Sometimes I have to retype it over and over before I'm allowed in, and sometimes it never works at all.
I love these blogs, and I fully understand some people's need for a modicum of privacy and/or selectivity, but why won't WordPress work for me? I guess I'm not cool enough.
I feel excluded, and I've never once tried to sell anyone Viagra or invited them to view a blog that is nothing but an advertisement, hoping to fool the ignorant.
Sigh. Being uncool is so, well, uncool.
Update: Several lovely people have told me that it isn't WordPress's fault at all; apparently it's an option. In other words, the individual blogger can opt to exclude me if I don't have a login and password. But I DO have one. Why won't my username and password work consistently? It's the one WordPress sent me!
I'm going to go have a baby-tantrum over it now. I'll be in the kitchen mashing bananas in a big bowl for my daughter's friends, who asked for some banana bread and are fast discovering that their wish is my command.
