I ticked the box: Use Google+ Comments on this blog: BAD MOVE
In the photo below it is now unticked! Amazing how one little tick can cause such stress!
After discovering that non Google+ members could not comment without joining G+ I left G+ and thought that I would reinstate Blogger as plain old Blogger and that would be that...but the comments thing was stuck on G+ and even after following all the help prompts, I could not change it back from my Blogger dashboard as you can see from my previous post...COMMENTS had vanished as an option to click on!
So after some time, I have now rejoined G+ and found the place to untick the comment thing! PHEW! Hopefully things will go back to normal around here. I don't mind the G+ but I do mind the comment thing and Google forcing peeps to become G+ members to be able to comment...Why have a blog if half your friends cant comment?
I found that with the G+ comment system it was a bit like Face Book as friends of peeps who had commented on my post would comment to their friend and I would have their irrelevant and personal comments coming up on my blog. I am not going there again I can tell you!
Thanks to Peggy Apl who pointed me to a help page that got me on the right track.
Hope this helps anyone else who wants to back track.
