FLYING HIGH


I told you I love this place and that you are going to see a lot from here, didn't I? ;) So here I was again... at the Mont-Cenis lake, at 2,000 m altitude. It was a glorious sunny day with an amazing blue sky and those lovely white clouds you see in the mountains... and after the recent snowfalls there is still quite a lot of snow for end of May. The mountains surrounding the lake are all over 3,000 m high... so of course they still have quite a lot of snow! But it's going to be very green here very soon, and the lake will turn an amazing blue!





A lovely stop at a charming Alpine café and restaurant at 2,000 m height... :)

Reply to your comment:
Dearest Anna,
You are mentioning two separate issues. The one where 'Anyone - Includes Anonymous Users' can comment versus the setting I use: Registered Users - Includes OpenID for warding off SPAM. The choice is up to you but the Reply feature only works with the Embedded setting. This tutorial will show that: http://networkedblogs.com/IK8Qd
And again, it is completely up to you for allowing Anyone; if you accept some SPAM as well.
The point is with reply comments made on your own blog, without that reply feature being activated; they will seldom be read. Who has the time on hand for checking ALL blogs where they left a comment?
Than you better click the person's name and leave a comment on their blog; they will understand the connection and still could go back and forth if needed.
Wishing you a lovely week with sunshine.
Hugs,
Mariette

Annuk has left a new comment on your post "{Margraten - Netherlands American Cemetery and Mem...":

Dearest Mariette,
thank you so much for your useful advice about how to reply to comments. The reason why I'm using this comment layout (which doesn't offer the "Reply" option) is that when I had the "embedded comment form" option (the one you use) some readers were unable to leave comments, and others complained about long times for loading the page. I researched this and it seems that some of my widgets were interfering with that layout. So I started using the other version for comments, which is very quick in loading and seems to work well for everybody. I will think about it, in the meanwhile thanks! :)
Hugs

Annuk said...

Thank you dear Mariette! :)
Hugs!

About the comment issue: I really appreciate your help! I'm aware of the Anyone vs Registered Users Only option (I'm using the latter, I'm not interested in anonymous comments anyway), but the issue wasn't connected to this, it was just a problem with the upload of the page for some (registered!) readers and browsers (especially IE), plus some people wouldn't get the box for leaving a comment. Blogger advices the "window" setting I'm currently using for avoiding the kind of problem I mentioned. I chose this over the Reply feature offered by the Embedded option so as to make it easier for everyone to leave comments. I know other bloggers who had the same problem and had to revert to the "window comment" setting. For some strange reason, the embedded version doesn't work for some blogs. I will still give it a thought and thanks for your advice anyway :)

Dawn of LaTouchables said...

Anna, you can never show us too much--I am amazed by this pristine place you live. There are two kinds of beauties that all the words in the world can't describe--one is the sea, and the other the mountains. I'm speechless, and I love it!

Annuk said...

Dawn, those two beauties rock my world!!! Sea and mountains -- two beauties so different, yet so deeply moving in such a similar way.
