Hi All!! Hope you're having a great Monday!
First, I wanted to point out a paint mistake I made in my last post on the retro green desk!
(Paint color Palm Leaf by Valspar)
I told you the paint color was Bayleaf by Valspar - it is actually PALM leaf!!
Sorry! I sent the paint can home with Mandy J and thought I remembered the paint color correctly.
Ok - SECOND, all my comment-leaving problems have been fixed!! I know a lot of you have been having problems leaving comments. This has been making me so angry - I've even resorted to e-mailing a few people my comments! =)
I had heard you could download Mozilla as your internet browser, but I didn't want to do that. I have enough junk on my PC already. Then I read this post from Bonnie @ Pink Stitches! It changed my life! Haha, ok. Not really, but now I can communicate with my blogging buddies again, and for that I'm thankful!
Tip #1 - I only had issues leaving comments with blogs that had their comment section embedded in the post. If you think you have been receiving fewer comments, check your comment format. Select comments to appear as either a full page, or a pop-up window (that's what I use). This should make it easier for folks to comment on your posts!
Tip #2 - For embedded comments - when you leave your comment you have multiple options as to how you wish to be identified. If the blog has it available (not all do) you can choose to comment as Name/URL. It takes a second to type your name and blog address, but you can comment!
Tip #3 - For embedded comments - lastly, like I mentioned above, not all blogs have the Name/URL option available. But don't worry! If you are google like me, just select to sign in with your google profile.
In the past, this would result in me jumping back and forth between the blog's comment section and the blogger sign-in page over and over. The secret is to not keep your self signed in (see picture below).
Just de-select the "Stay signed in" box under your password. Don't ask me why, but it works!!
So far **fingers crossed** I've been able to comment on everyone's blogs again! Hooray!!
If you've stuck around this long thanks! My last question is simple:
Where do you get your furniture to refinish??
The goodwill here SUCKS! I always get so jealous at the super finds people make at their Goodwill!
My go-to source is usually Craigslist, but lately I've been having poor luck. Either people won't return my e-mails or they tell me to call and schedule a pick-up time then don't answer their phone. Grr!
I even had a woman last week tell me to meet her at 1:45. I got out of school early and showed up around 1:15. She had just sold the desk I was coming to get! WHAT?! Her excuse was "well, you never know if people are going to show up or not." At least give the chance to show up before you write me off! Needless to say I was furious and there was discussion of kicking her big porcelain fairy. **No porcelain fairies were harmed** But joking around about it made me feel a little better!
So, I'm just curious where I should go for furniture and would love to hear all of your secrets!!
