A to Z Challenge - T and Disqus Issues!!!

For the A to Z Challenge, I am featuring some awesome bloggers. These individuals have offered so much support of my book, CassaStar, and me on my blogger journey. Of course, I’ll be keeping up with the world of movies, music, and pop culture stuff as well! Ninjas are just talented that way...


Ten Lives and Second Chances
Without a doubt, Kitty is one of my favorite people online! She possess such a great attitude and the origin of her blog title is really touching. Where she shines is in her comments! I have to make sure I’m not drinking when I read them. Kitty possesses a playful spirit that shines all over the web, and I’m honored she graces my blog with her presence.

Tessa's Blurb
Tessa is a writer - she thinks! But I know she's a writer. She's also an avid reader. She discusses both on her blog, but there's a lot more to Tessa. She's a sweetheart, and you'll discover that when she visits your blog. (I think she visits mine because I amuse her...)

DISQUS ISSUES!

For those of you who use the Disqus comment box, I've experienced challenges this week. I think a couple others had trouble as well. So, if you have a Disqus comment box (Ocean Girl, TS, Maurice) I may or may not be able to leave a comment. Sorry!

Anyone else feeling challenged with Disqus?

Have a Happy Easter, everyone! Got a couple movies to watch, but not heading to the theater. Wife wants to see the stupid cat movie. Last fall, the stupid horse movie was all right, but didn't care for the stupid owl movie. Maybe I should just avoid animal flicks in general!

My book trailer is in another contest at You Gotta Read Videos! If you think my trailer is cool and all that, please go vote!!! My publisher did such an awesome job with the trailer…

I don't know what Disqus is, so I guess I am not having trouble :)
Thanks for introducing me to these awesome bloggers.

Pk Hrezo said...

Happy Easter to you too! Hope you get to see a movie you like. I'll hop on over and vote for your trailer.

Have a great weekend!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Have a wonderful time at the theatre, and I wish you and your family A Joyus Easter,

Yvonne,

Nebular said...

Happy Easter to you too, Alex. The stupid horse movie was alright, and I loved the stupid owl movie. LOL. :)

Emily White said...

Happy Easter to you! Maybe you should see the stupid bunny movie instead. Nothing beats a rabbit pooping jellybeans. :)

Laura Eno said...

I've always had a challenge with Disqus - I thought it was just me. :)
Voted for your trailer!

Jessica Bell said...

I hate discus. I can NEVER comment. It sucks. Have a happy Easter! Off to vote for you trailer! :o)

Old Kitty said...

Oh noes!!! I am blushing!!! Awwww schucks!!!! Off I go to hide under a rock - preferably with the spirit of Mr Bassa. Ahem.

Yes, I am feeling very challenged by Disqus because I haven't a clue what is it but it sounds ever so complicated and spelt all wrong! LOL!

Yay for Tessa;s Blurb too!!

I so tried to vote again but wasn't allowed to!

Yay for the cat movie!!! May you watch many more!
:-)

HAPPY EASTER!!! Take care
x

Lauracea said...

Thanks for the links again, Alex. Going to check out what disques are (duh). Happy Easter

The Old Silly said...

Happy Easter, Alex, and hey - love that clip!

li said...

I was going to say I had no problems with commenting or voting on your trailer, but I'm afraid I'll jinx myself. So, Happy Easter.

Jeffrey Beesler said...

It's kind of hard to avoid the animal flicks when your significant other wants to watch them. Have a happy Easter, Alex!

TerryLynnJohnson said...

heading over to vote. I love this trailer!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Siv, glad it's not just me!

Pk, I saw one that sucked last night - I'll review it on Monday.

Nebular - I know! Maybe it's just me and animals.

Emily, you make it sound so enticing...

Laura, it's not just you!

Jessica, it was working for me, but not anymore.

Kitty, and it's comments like that I adore! You're right - it's spelt wrong!

Jeffrey, I'll NetFlix it for her!

Thanks everyone and have an awesome Easter weekend!

Helen Ginger said...

I have no idea about the stupid cat movie, but you know you have to go see it, don't you? Every once in a while you must suffer for your love.

Alison Stevens said...

I seem to have trouble commenting on blogs even without disqus. :( But it's teaching me to be more patient. I think.
Enjoy the movies and have a happy Easter!

Clarissa Draper said...

What is the stupid cat movie!?

Karen Walker said...

Happy Easter, Alex. I want to see the stupid cat movie, too.
Karen

Donna Weaver said...

Love the trailer!

GigglesandGuns said...

I'm in good company with Clarissa -- What cat movie?

Happy Easter, Alex!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Happy Easter!

Grandpa said...

I never liked commenting at Discus - too complicated!
I don't fancy animal movies either.

That's a great trailer.

Happy Easter Alex.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Helen, I'll suffer on NetFlix.

Clarissa and Mary, it's The African Cats.

Thanks, Grandpa!

Bossy Betty said...

I LOVE Kitty! I went over to sign-up with Teresa as well.

I have many issues, but none of which you speak of today.

Charles Gramlich said...

I've been having a problem with Ocean girl's blog for sure. Can only comment once out of about 10 times.

Stephen Tremp said...

I haven't had problems leaving comments. And I just came from Kitty's blog. Gotta love that Charlie. I'll stop by Tessa's blog and introduce myself

N. R. Williams said...

I'm with you on stupid movies. Siv told me that in Norway they don't have an Easter Bunny but an Easter Chicken and that made me laugh. Have a good Easter.

the writing pad said...

Very familiar with the wonderful Old Kitty's blog and superb comments. Will check out Tessa's too. Thanks for the links :-)

TS Hendrik said...

For those having disqus problems, I sent off a letter to disqus. They said it's a problem with older browsers and they hope to have it patched for next week.

Have a happy Easter Alex!

Monti said...

Right now, I'm wondering if "T" should be for tornadoes! What is going on? North Carolina had 100s (did I read that correctly) of them last Saturday and the St. Louis Airport was devastated last night. A middle school near where we live and many of its buses were destroyed during a tornado last Saturday.

Hope today is quieter. Happy Easter!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Betty, you don't have issues...

Charles, I can do it if I use my iPad.

Nancy, and Easter Chicken? I wonder how he tastes...?

TS, thanks, and guess it's time to update the browser...

Monti, hope it's quieter as well! And I saw the videos from the St. Louis airport - unconfirmed my ass, that's tornado damage!

Milo James Fowler said...

Oh no, not the stupid owl movie... "Trust your gizzard!"

mshatch said...

I agree, old kitty rocks:)

Gail said...

You don't like animals or just animal movies?

I remember years ago, I watched the first Lassie movie and when she went over the water fall, hubby said she died. I was so upset, because Lassie never dies!!!

It was a long wait for Lassie to limp back home. Hubby never gave it away either, just kept telling me...I knew I should have married someone else!!!

Well, that had nothing to do with this but I did vote for you, Alex.

I am ready for the second book. Hurry up!!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Milo, but I don't have a gizzard!!

Gail, I love animals. Just don't need to see them mating and stuff in nature specials.
And my wife would kill me if I did that to her...

N4M3L3SS said...

like always great links and good reviews, great blog!

Toyin O. said...

Thanks for sharing:)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I purchased three movies for in the kiddies' Easter baskets so we'll be watching during the rainy afternoon tomorrow.
Happy Easter to you and yours.

The Golden Eagle said...

I've run into Disqus issues as well.

Old Kitty and Tessa are two great bloggers. :)

Happy Easter!

Empty Nest Insider said...

I voted for your amazing book trailer! Good luck in the contest and thanks for the tips! Julie

LTM said...

Yay for Old Kitty!!! The girls and I love love love her blog and Charlie. Fun stuff!

Oh, and voted for your trailer. Best of luck~

Dafeenah said...

Disqus doesn't particularly like me I am not quite sure why. I often have trouble leaving comments on people's blogs who use disqus. Sometimes it lets me other times it doesn't. At least now I know I am not the only one it doesn't like.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Susan, you did well!

Thank you Empty Nester!

Thanks, LTM. And she's a doll.

Dafeenah, you're not. TS said it's a browser issue, so I guess we all need to upgrade.

Thanks everyone and have a great Easter!

Ella said...

Happy Easter; I bought 3 alarm Hot Tamales, it is going to be fun! ;-D

Paul Joseph said...

Happy Easter, Alex! Have a great holiday!!!

Major.Mack said...

Happy easter to you as well

Lynda R Young said...

Happy Easter, Alex :)

Laura said...

Happy Easter Alex! Hope you manage to avoid all furry / feathery movies! There's an award for you at Daily Dodo (I know you've probably had it tonnes before, but... well... ya know... :))
Lx

The Words Crafter said...

Hey, it might be a good movie....maybe.

Already following those great bloggers.

Happy Easter!

Chuck said...

Alex, sorry I haven't been by here for a while, this Challenge is a challenge in more ways than one! I too am having Disqus issues. I have not been able to leave a comment on TS's blog in two weeks now. The screen just locks up when I submit.

I am going to vote for your trailer...least I can not for not being around lately.

And thanks for two more blogs to check out.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ella - good for you

Laura, thanks!

Chuck, that's cool! And thanks for voting,

Donna Hole said...

I'm always having blogger problems. But I didn't know there were names for the comment box. Weird.

Have a Happy Easter Alex. Maybe the cat moview will be better than a chicken or bunny movie :)

.......dhole

Susan Fields said...

Old Kitty is one of my absolute favorite bloggers as well. Her comments always, always make me smile. Love her!!!

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

haven't noticed any issues with Disqus, but then again i've been super busy so my commenting isn't what it usually is...

Arlee Bird said...

I have had problems with Disqus, Intense Debate, as well as some of the other blog hosts or filters or whatever they are. Since I started going through Google Chrome some of the problems have been remedied, but still they at time reoccur. I have let a few of the site owners know when I really had problems, but I guess they will just have to deal with less comments if they don't want to change.

Raquel Byrnes said...

Hey, Alex, Happy Easter! Good luck on your trailer...you got MY vote!

Jingle said...

Happy Easter!

Glad to have you host a-z challenge. Enjoyed the waves of blogs/posts.

Happy Writing!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Donna, if you come upon a Disqus box, you'll know it.

Lee, you're right!

Thank you, Raquel!

Jingle, thank you -glad you've enjoyed it.

Pat Tillett said...

What's wrong with a stupid cat movie?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Pat, good to know it's not just me.

Thanks, Mary!

Jai Joshi said...

Happy Easter! Have fun with those stupid cats.

Cheeseboy said...

I've tried using Disqus and became "Disqus-ted" with it.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Jai!

Cheesboy, you're a laugh a minute! Hope you had agreat birthday weekend.

Julia Smith said...

Awesome trailer! I'm shooting my own book trailer next weekend - I am beyond psyched.

Will check out your 'T' links - great idea for the challenge.

Leovi said...

I became fan of his and I have discussed. Kitty Qizás get lucky and I said something to me.

Pen Name: Imogen Rayne said...

Happy Easter My Friend! I am loving the A to Z Challenge. To bad it is almost over!

Tessa Conte said...

LOL THANK YOU for featuring me!! *blows kisses*

And yes, you're amusing, and interesting, and a damned good writer. Can't wait for the sequel to CassaStar!!

T.xx

ps. Happy belated Easter!!

Budd said...

totally had problems with disqus this week.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Disqus is a huge pain in the rear. I still think it's better than the native commenting system, but the synchronization and browser support is horrible. Sorry about that.
