Do Us All A Favor, Would You? {Guest Post!}

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Robinson and I blog at My New Wife Life.

On my blog I write about marriage and what it's like to be a newlywed, our sick-nasty tattoos, our little Chihuahua named Zombie, recipes, health & my recent goal to lose some weight, among other things.  If that sounds like your idea of a good time, stop on over.  I'd love to have you!  Enough about me...let's get on to the good stuff! 

The whole word verification thing on Blogger has gotten out of control.  Are you with me?  

"Please prove you're not a robot?"  So...basically Blogger is telling us that when we fail to recognize some of the extremely skewed letters, we fail the human test?  That's pretty harsh.  I don't know about y'all, but that messes with my self esteem!  Haha.  :)  The best thing to do in negative relationships like these is to get out and get out now.  I'm going to tell you how to give Word Verification the boot.

How To Remove Word Verification

Step 1:  Determine if  you are using the old or new Blogger.  Refer to the pictures below if you aren't sure.  

Step 2:  If you are using old Blogger, skip to Step 4.  If you are using new Blogger look in the top right corner of your screen and find the "Blogger Options" button.  Refer to pictures below to see where this button is and what it looks like.

Step 3:  Once you have found the "Blogger Options" button, pictured above, click on on it and you will see a menu drop down.  Click on the 5th option - "Old Blogger Interface."  Be patient while your page is reloading.  :)  

Step 4:  You are now looked at the old Blogger Interface.  Beneath the "Manage Blogs" header, find and click on "Settings" as pictured below.

Step 5:  Once you click on "Settings," you will see the page below.  Click on "Comments."  

Step 6:  After you have reached the "Settings" & "Comments" Page, scroll down until you see the left-justified words, "Show Word Verification for Comments?"  See the picture below for reference.

Step 7:  Select "No" because that is the correct answer.  Scroll down some more and for the love of all things precious, SAVE your SETTINGS.  :)  I always forget this part!  

To return to the new Blogger, simply scroll all the way up to the very top of the screen and click "Try the updated Blogger interface."  

And they all lived happily ever after.  Ashley, thank you for having me!  :)  I hope that any of you reading this will make these changes and help make the blogging world a better place full of magical comments and smiles!  :)  Have a great day! 


  1. Thank you Thank you! I hate filling this in myself and don't want my readers to skip leaving me comment because of it!

  2. I 100% agree :) I wrote a post about this yesterday! Maybe we all should, and everyone would take it off!

  3. THANK YOU!!!!! I suck at catchpa

    1. FOR REAL, right!? I hate them. They seem to be just getting more and more annoying!

  4. I came over from Mrs. Robinson and have enjoyed looking around the blog and have enjoyed the writing and pcitures. And yes, I think I could vent for days about the whole stupid word verification. It's the worst part about leaving comments for sure!

    new follower :)

    1. Awesome! Thank you so much! I'm headed over to you... ;)

  5. They are so annoying - I only recently double checked to make sure my comment verification was off - but now I'm going to check again, BECAUSE it seriously annoys me.

    Also while we're talking about. Automatic music when you load a page. It's not ok.

    1. Hahaha, agreed! I often listen to tunes while blog surfing and I HATE having to mute my own bc someone has it on their page.

      Thank you so much for stopping in and actually reading! I'm looking forward to stalking 'Decoy Betty' in a few!


Thanks for saying "Hi!"
