First a Rant, then a Give-Away!

First the Rant

Shame, shame, shame!
No, no. It's not because you didn't wear a belt in your hair. It's because some of you still use that dreaded and damnable embedded comment feature that disallows many of us on Macs from leaving comments on your blog.

Does your comment feature look like this?:
Please change it! It's such a simple remedy! Here we go with my first ever tutorial!

1. From your Dashboard, click on Settings.2. From there, click on Comments3. Change your settings to "anyone" can comment - and click either "pop up window" or "full page" to get rid of that devilish "embedded" choice!Then, after clicking "save," you have completely fixed this software glitch that has been happening to many with Macs for almost a year now! Easy Peasy!

So, now, when you invite me to your blog, and think I've ignored you, I will be able to leave a comment so you know that I did, indeed, respond to the invitation!

Oh, Joy! Oh, Rapture!
The rant has come to its completion!
Now it's time for fun!
(Seriously, does anything say 'sexy' like the world's largest
string bean sticking out of your butt?)

500th Follower Give-Away!


Okay, I'm a little late - it's 505. Welcome to all the new followers! I'm so glad that you've decided to join us here for a little fun, a little beauty, a little Hollywood, a little funky trash, and lots of art!

Trust me, when I started rambling and posting my absurd photos and internet finds a little over a year ago, I had no idea that there would be people who would appreciate this stuff as much as I do!

In honor of my 500th Follower, I'm offering this Marie Antoinette mini theatre, created by moi! I took a bazillion photos, and none of them turned out very well. So this is it. I decided it would have to do. If you need a closer look, just click on the image, and a ginormous version will miraculously appear, courtesy of blogspot.com

So, if you would like to enter to win this little scene of 'Toinette walking through her rose garden, leave a comment on this post only.
Then, if you are a follower, leave another comment on this post to tell me. (If you are not a follower, why not?!)
Then, if you blog this giveaway on your site, leave ANOTHER comment with the link on this post.
That's three chances to win! Good luck!

Did all the italics indicate that I can't go through all the posts on my blog (again) and pick out the giveaway comments, then add them to final tally? I love you. But, really, now!

I'll announce the winner - via random number generator - next Sunday!

Okay, enough with the rants and the giveaways ... I have to go jump in the shower and then get to church.Go make something beautiful!

I am totally guilty on not restoring my comment thing to allowing everyone to comment. When I changed from a two column to a three column Blog, I forgot to enable it again. It's fixed now so please do come by :)

This creation is marvelous! You do the most beautiful work.

Have a lovely Sunday,
LuLU

Fab blog! Fab Antoinette Theatre.
Please count me in!

spindelmaker said...

Well, I could be a follower, but that wouldn´t mean I knew what was going on, as my blogger-address or google-account or whatever it is, is only a mock, so I can leave comments on blogs like the ones you mentioned above. No. I´ve got a better solution! I´ve got an RSS-feed on you, and I am enjoying you blog so much! I get your posts the minute they´re out, so I follow you, even though I´m not a follower. You follow?
Anyway, your theatre looks great! Have a nice day!

Marilyn said...

O.K. if you pick me I will worship you from "afire"....ah..errr...I mean from "a far"!!
Love the Giveaway Prize!!
Love Ya',

Joy said...

Oh Tristan, I love your rant. You rant in style.

Please add my name to your chic chapeaux. ;o)

Boot ~C said...

I've had that trouble too, when trying to leave comments.Although sometimes they go through the second time when I hit , congrats on your followers!

Carolee said...

Great rant, but (as usual) I'm confused, lol! I already allow all comments and already have the settings set to "full page" - yet I know you've said you can't comment - eek! What's up with that?! Is it because I moderate comments? Have to do that - spam several times a day, unfortunately....

Anyway, WONDERFUL giveaway, and please count me in!!

Carolee said...

Oh, and I'm already a follower! :)

your fairy friend

oldblackcatboo said...

Well....I thought I left a comment but now I don't see it...maybe it's being moderated? but if not, it just goes to show you how completely computer-illiterate I am! I THINK I've fixed the setting/comment thing so that if you ever want to leave me a comment, you can.....but then again, maybe I messed that up too!
sigh... someday maybe I'll get all this figured out, but I kinda doubt it, I think I burned out all the brain cells years ago!

Nelly said...

Hi Tristan!! Congrats on all those followers. Your posts are always so terrific and enjoyable. Thanks for the giveaway. Your mini theater is exquisite!! I'd love to have one your art pieces.

Nelly said...

Hi again. I'm one of your followers too. Lucky me!

Tumbleweed Trails said...

Oh Tristan, how you always manage to brighten my every day and keep me smiling. Your posts are always such a treat. Thank you..for being you. Quite the first tutorial you've presented. When can we expect another? Congrats on all of the followers. It's not so surprising that you have so many.

Thanks for celebrating with such a lovely treasure for your giveaway.

mary helen said...

Oh goodness, I think I need a tutorial on posting a link...I'm going to try...wish me luck! (I really want those 3 chances!)

KarenHarveyCox said...

Hi Tristan,

I didn't know this about leaving comment problem from my Mac. I have only come across problems leaving comments when people have those pop menus.

I had to change my "anyone can leave a comment" because I have this Japanese lunatic who was leaving me comments daily, a paragraph long with only one English word. At Christmas he left me thirty creepy messages on one back post. It took me days to delete the comments. The only word I could make out in the comments was one English word...Which told me his intentions were not good ones. So, now I am having to publish comments after approval and no longer have anonymous comments.

Well, I am glad that you can leave comments on my posts, because I totally enjoy your words. I love your new comment signature too. Hope you have a great Sunday.

Karen
