The Spam is Driving Me Crazy!

Hi Bloggy Friends!

Is anyone else having this problem?

I'm getting at least 15 spam comments a day! It's driving me bonkers.

This is me EVERY day (except I'm a girl...and my hair is much longer:). 
Everything else is accurate.

I've decided to turn the word verification on for a little while to see if that stops it. I just hope it doesn't stop you from leaving all your wonderful comments.

My apologies, but I don't know what else to do.  Help!

Yum yum. NOT!


Yee-haw! Corinna, from Surfin' Through 2nd, has solved my problem. Bless her heart!!

I had no idea it was this easy. Feelin' kind of dumb, but there you go, I learned something new today, so it's all good:)

Here's what I did: I went to "Settings", then "Posts and Comments" and then I clicked on "Registered User".

No more anonymous comments, no more spam!  Thank you, Corinna!!

PS  My husband was laughing at the spam image, NOT because of the gross breakfast, but because the wife was serving the husband breakfast in bed.  Hmm...trying to remember if I've ever done that for him.  I guess not :))


  1. Barb this was happening to me too!! Go to settings and do not allow anonymous comments. This will get rid of it!! You will be so happy :)

  2. Great tip! I got my first spam this week and it was a bit annoying to have a weird comment next to all the nice ones!
    Thanks for the remedy!

  3. I was having the same problem. I used the word verification. Then I read your post. :) Thanks for the tip.
