Everyone Can Comment!

We have a special guest post tonight. The Illinois farmhands are here to do some work for us. One of Sam's contributions is working on the blog. Read on for some of his tech-support. Thanks Sam!

Thanks to my masterful computer skillz, ANYONE can post a comment on Mollie's wonderful blog! You no longer need a Google Account or Blogger profile. All you need is a name, and I assume all of you have one of those. When you find a comment-worthy post (which they all are), follow these steps to share your thoughts with Mollie and the rest of this blog's readers.

1. Click on the link at the bottom of the post that says "0 Comments." It tells the number of comments on the post, but as of this writing, most posts have zero comments, unfortunately. How about we change that, eh?
2. The link will take you to a page specifically for that post. Underneath the post, there will be a blank text box, above which it reads "Post a Comment." Do as it says! Type your message in the box.
3. When you are satisfied with your comment, click "Select profile..." It's next to the "Comment as," underneath the message box.
4. Click the option that says "Name/URL." It is the second to the bottom option. Don't worry, you do not need to have a URL (web address) to post a comment.
5. A small window will pop up that says "Edit profile." Type your name in the text box under the heading "Name:".
6. When you are satisfied with the spelling of your name, press the button that says "Continue."
7. Now you have the chance to review and edit your comment one last time before it is published for all the Internet to see! Muah-ha-ha!
8. Finally, click the button that says "Post Comment."
And that's it!

Wasn't that easy? You don't need to set up an account or anything! Welcome to the magic of the World Wide Web!
Now get commenting!

  1. Good info because I often want to post a comment on this fine blog about American farm life. Now I can do that thanks to you, Sam. With your tech knowledge you get out of the hefty lifting of chores. Have fun and greet all.

  2. Look! I can comment! What will they think of next?

  3. But seriously - I'm enjoying reading your blog Mollie, and knowing a little bit about what your life is like these days. Hope that calf continue to get better!

  4. Thanks Sam! And good work out there, Toppe fam!

  5. Way to go Sam! Hope you are enjoying your summer. Maybe we'll see you at the Rockford Y soon - Patrick has been lazy! Please tell your sister I have really been enjoying the blog.

  6. Nice work Sam! I, for one, appreciate being able to include a URL with my comment so I can plug my own blog.

    And thanks for the sticker Jennings Brae Bank Farm!

  7. Next time Same does some blog IT you should add a "notify me of follow-up comments by email" option. That'd be slick.

  8. Mollie,
    I really enjoyed reading about your life on the farm in WV. Of course, I enjoyed the pictures of your mom, dad, and brother working with you two at the farm. It sounmds like you are really busy, but really love almost every minute of it. You two should be very proud of all that you have accomplished in such a short time.
    I worked with your dad at Brookview for 5 years, but only met you twice. However your dad keeps in contact with me, and is obviously very proud of his daughter and son-in-law. I love how you call him Farmer John.
    The blog is so much fun to read. Good luck with the driving bridge. That will make your life a little easier!
    Best Wishes,

  9. Mollie,

    You are a really good writer. I think in all your "spare" time you should work on a novel. It makes me smile and feel happy when I read your posts. I am so impressed with your enery and enthusiasm. Keep on learning and stretching.

  10. Mollie, This is your mom's cousin Karen Sue Anderson Meade (from Seattle).My sister Cindy sent me your Blog. Sure have enjoyed reading and seeing pictures of all your adventures on the Farm. Looks and sounds like you are enjoying yourselves. Fun to see my Cousin Mary (Mom 2 U) feeding a calf!! Thanks for doing the blog...Hugs from your shirtail relative in Seattle.. Karen Sue
