To apply
Send a little bit about you and a link to your blog to me

We are looking for a few Design team members to join the team on a bi weekly rota ( So 2 challenges a month )
If you think you have ... what we need ... then get in touch

I know that lots of us in Bloggerland have been having issues with not being able to comment and access certain blogs etc.. It affected quite a gfew of our team last week
Scatty Jan has posted an easy fix on her blog. So hopefully she wont mind me posting it here for all to see
The easy fix is:



Comment Placement - You have to untick the radio button next to Embedded Comments and select 'Pop Up' instead.

This will fix it :) And will allow people to see your blog properly and leave comments. Hope this helps anyone having the same problems.

Edited to add: This will only fix the issue on your own blog, you cant change what you see on others blogs obviously, and this could affect quite a few blogs :(
