The end of spam comments

A friend sent me a link to an article that detailed a new Blogger feature: blogging with Microsoft Word. Yes, you can create and edit posts from Word that get posted directly to your blog! So far my Internet connection has always timed out and I haven't been able to use it successfully but I'm guessing it works.

I explored what other updates Blogger added recently and found the answer to spam comments. From now on all commenters on this blog will have to use the word verification system (just released yesterday!) that prevents automated commenters from spamming my blog. It will add a small extra step to the process but it's well worth it in the end.

Thanks for the tip. I'll turn it on for my blog too. Spam is getting out of control.
