Here’s what you need to do.

  1. In the comments section of this post, write a brief introduction of who you are and attach a link to one of your blog posts or your ‘about me’ page.

  3. During the time the party runs, feel free to come back and leave up to two other links to blog posts. They don’t have to be blog posts from your blog; why not surprise a fellow blogger you follow, introduce them and leave a link to one of their blog posts?

  • Hi Miriam,

    I’m attaching a link to a post I wrote a few months ago when my comments were all ending up in the WordPress spam folders of other bloggers.


    This problem has been happening a lot and many bloggers don’t know about it because either nobody is telling the blogger that their comments are going to spam, or bloggers aren’t checking their spam folders regularly. It took me a while to find out what to do but once I contacted WordPress they were very helpful and sorted the problem out quickly. Others have told me the same.

    I hope it helps.

    Best wishes,

  • Hi, Miriam.

    I wanted to thank you so much for sharing the news of my current blog party. Thank you so much.

    I also wanted to make you aware that, for some reason, your comments ended up in my WordPress spam folder. I fished them out and put them where they should have originally gone. I’m not sure if you are aware but there has been a lot of problems on WordPress over the last few months with people reporting that all their comments are ending up in the spam folders of variuos blogs. It happened to me and, for days, all my comments were simply disappearing and ending up in the spam folders of the blogs where I was leaving comments. It may be worth checking with other bloggers if any recent comments you have left have ended up in their WordPress spam folder. I had to get WordPress to sort out the problem for me, which they did, but I had no idea it was happening until another blogger informed me that my comments had ended up in their WordPress spam folder.

    Let me know if have any further questions about this or need any help with it.

    Best wishes,

    • I went to OM’s M&G and entered three comments. They all went to spam. I reblog his M&G, my bloggers went to his post, they comments showed right away. I had to go to his Twitter to ask me to find me. There they were, all in his spam folder. He had to fish me out also! I have about 5 a day that end up in spam folder. I don’t know what to do except check frequently. Other bloggers told me the same. Best Wishes for your book.
