Blog Update…How I’m Learning an Old Saying Is Still True

Have you ever heard the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?”

Well, I’m beginning to wonder if I should have thought of that. My comment system for the blog wasn’t broken, but I decided to tweak it. 😦

Yesterday I updated my blog to Disqus–a commenting system on the internet which works with different blogging platforms. It helps eliminate spam and helps encourage conversations between people. I’ve seen other blogs which use Disqus and read a little about it so I decided to give it a try.

I’ve signed up for it and it’s supposed import the comments I already have into my new Disqus system. So far nothing has happened. The Disqus site says it may take 24 hours, but since I only have a few blog posts and comments I would have thought it could be done very quickly. It has already been nearly 24 hours and I see nothing. Very frustrating.

Just wanted to let anyone know who might have commented in the past that I’m aware of the problem. I may go back to plain old Blogger! I do still have the comments so I hope I can restore them if I decide to return to my old system. I want my comments back…
