Operation Pop-up Window Pirate: Update

A while back, I posted about Blogger's comment options and my personal preference for the Pop-Up Window. I launched a campaign to convert all of blog-kind to Pop-Up Window Pirates, because I like to browse blogs and leave a little comment for the blog owner. The Pop-Up Window is by far the fastest of the three comment options that Blogger offers. Since then, I've been paying attention when I comment and I'm pretty sure there are more Pop-Up Windows than the other two options by quite a margin. Who knew I had such influence in the Blog-isphere?

Thank you to all who have joined the
Pop-Up Window Pirate Crew!

{or already were a Pop-Up Window Pirate and I'm totally taking credit for it now.}

I now follow 72 blogs {five have been added to the list just today!} Ya'll make some cool stuff and say funny things and have adorable children/families/pets. I love to see what you get up to. I also like to comment at each blog at least once a week. Because let's face it, bloggers love comments. I'd like to think I'm practicing the Golden Rule.

I'm posting about this again because I really am grateful to everyone who changed their settings just for me. I also wanted to post for those who may be new here or missed this the first time around. I'd love it if the Pop-Up Window Pirate Crew Members would continue to spread the word. I even made a little bloggy button for you.

I've also written up some step-by-step instructions for changing your comment settings. They were specially designed with all types of learners in mind {for those who follow verbal instructions best, read them out loud to yourself} and they will help you to quickly and easily become a Pop-up Window Pirate.

• From your Dashboard, click on the Settings option.

• Under the settings tab, click on the fourth option: Comments.

• In the third heading labeled Comment Form Placement, select Pop Up Window.

• Save your changes {scroll to the bottom of the page} and you're done. You're now officially a Pop-Up Window Pirate. Welcome to the crew, matey.

Yours Humbly,
Elizabeth, King of the Pirates

Sniff. I don't pop up, but I don't make you verify either. ;-)

Hey Elizabeth, thanks for posting about this (again) because I prefer the pop-up option so I can resort back to the post to make sure I comment on everything I love!! And I do like the photos of your kiddies - their names are adorable!
