Super Duper Blog Candy

Wow super duper blog candy on offer from my Funky Hand DT mate....Chris.....this is blog candy with a capital B.......if I win this.....I will have to either chuck out all the stuff I already have or move to a bigger house....loads and loads of yummy goodies.

For a full list of what's in the CANDY and what you need to do to enter click HERE.
Chris has a pet hate which I also share and that is WORD VERIFICATION...the proverbial pain in the ass for all us bloggers who leave comments...Ok if you are just visiting a few blogs and leaving a few comments it probably doesn't bother you...but I tell you it bugs me no end with the amount of comments I leave in a week. If you disable WV and enable COMMENT MODERATION....then you can check each comment before it is posted and I can honestly say that I have never had any spam........Give it a try and if it doesn't work for you then you can always go back to VW.....PLEASE...PLEASE...PLEASE....think about it and if you leave me a comment to say that you are considering it ...believe me YOU WILL MAKE MY DAY....and on the 15th September I will draw a name out of the hat and someone will receive a goodie bag of Christmas scrummylicious stuff from me..... Love...Kath xxxxxx


  1. Hi Kath ,i know its such a pain but some evil so and so left a comment that nearly wrote my compter off so thats wht i put mine realy sorry ,hugs Dawnxxx

  2. Love your blog and read every post. Not as good at commenting as you are though! I switched from verification to moderation and we'll see. I had nothing for a while and got a whole lot of garbage so I turned the verification on. Moderation looks to be a good alternative. Thanks! ~chris

  3. I disable mine a while ago after you suggested it and haven't had any problems, shame that the minority sploil it for the majority every time, I have a good security system installed so I hope I will be OK.

    Best wishes


  4. Many thanks Kath for drawing my attention to this Wonderful Blog Candy and also the Verification Issue!

    Settings amended and changed lol!
    Hugs Suze x

  5. I disabled mine a while back Kath - they are my biggest bug bear too lol

    hugs Bev x

  6. Thanks for the support, Kath! :o)

    Is it cheating to say 'I am considering it'??? lol ;o)

    Oh, by the way, you've earned yourself EIGHT entries in my draw!

    Chris xx

  7. Okay Kath, I turned mine off, too - at least for now. If I don't have any problems, I'll probably leave it off. Love your blog! Becky G. @

  8. OK, OK. I just changed my blog. No more word verifications when you visit me:)I don't like them either.

  9. Hi Kath
    I'll give it a try to do it now:)

  10. Hi Kath, I appreciate your comments so am going to remove WV from my blog comments.

  11. Hi Kath, thanks for the reminder, I took word verification off of my blog - like you I hate it!

  12. Hi Kath :)
    I have listened to your plea and done as you have asked. I thought it was the done thing so I did it. Be interested to see if more people leave commetns on my blog now.

    Have a wonderful day!!

  13. I didn't realise there was an alternative so I am giving it a try. I hate word verification but I was tired of the sicko links that I was getting before. This might well be a great compromise - thanks!

  14. Hi Kath I have taken the word verification off my blog to be honest I didnt know you could but had a look see and found where to do it ok hun xxxx

  15. I am fairly new to blogging, so didn't even know that this was a setting. (blush) I truly appreciate your comments, so I have made the change you suggested, and hopefully all will still be good! Great blog - love your work, and TFS the blog candy information. I'm off now to check it out!

  16. Hi Kath

    I just found your blog and was interested to read about the WV. I didn't know you could turn if off. I plan on giving it a try because I had the WV.

  17. Kath,
    Didn't know you could turn it off. I am not very computer savvy so am off to see if I can figure it out.

  18. thank you thank you thank you!!!!!
    I could not agree more!!! It is a HUGE PIA!!!

  19. yes i have done it ~do i need to keep an eye out for "nasty" people now??? will try and find the moderation button if that helps with security!

  20. Hi Kath, I am with you all that WV is a pain and makes commenting so time consuming which then means less blogging then less crafting and so on! so I've turned mine off also! Kim x

  21. Hi Kath!
    I´ll give it a try too...
    Hugs, Minna

  22. I've turned mine off Kath & you are sooo right it takes ages commenting with the word verification (if especially like me you don't always get it right first time lol)

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend & have a good week :o)


  23. Great idea about the mdoeration, I will try that out (I'm not a fan of word verification either but you know....)

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. To answer your question, the twill ribbon was pre-printed.

    Take care!

  24. I HATE word verification too!!! I have 3 blogs and none of them have word verification.
    I visited a blog yesterday and had to punch in the letters the 4th time before I got it right!! I should have just LEFT as it was getting frustrating (and I'm on dialup, so you can imagine the PAIN) Sometimes being on dialup, the word verification block doesn't even show up and I have to refresh, making sure to copy my post so I don't have to re-type!!! Grrr...I'm getting mad justr thinking about the silliness word verification is!!!

  25. Hi Kath, love the new look of your blog. Thanks for pointing out about the WV and I've sorted it on mine now. Have a good week. Chris x

  26. Hi Kath,done and dusted,thanks for bringing it to my attention.oh and nice new blog,
    Have a good day,
    Take care

  27. I have removed my verification thingy. It drives me mad, but I didn't realise how easy it was to turn off!
    So, thanks!
    Try it out on my blog

  28. Hi Kath - I know what you mean - The old eye sights not that fanatsic and I am far to vain to wear the specs! LOL
    It takes ages for me to get all those little wonky letters and numbers correct. By the time I have I've forgotten what comment I was going to post anyway!!! Must be the age creeping on!!
    So, mines off!!!
    Love Terri X

  29. Hi Kath

    I turned mine off after reading Chris's blog! In fact i didn't think I had it on but then found I did .......ooooppsss! It is off now though :)

  30. Hi Hunny..

    I love your blog and lurk here quite happily for ages.

    I don't have word verification on my blog anymore - mainly because when I leave comments on blogs, it always took too long and was quite annoying when it didn't work!! Hence the reason I sympathise with others.. no word verification on mine no more!!

    Love Jo xx

  31. Such a beautiful delicate Fall card. Thank you for sharing.


I appreciate you visiting my blog and leaving a comment xxx
