Comment problems on Blogger

Hi all, My good friend Susan helped me out of a pickle yesterday and I'd like to share what she told me with you all because it affects all Blogger blogs. I found I couldn't leave a comment on my own blog (to answer another comment). It kept asking me to sign in then wouldn't recognise me and consequently I lost the comment and it wasn't published, instead I just went round in circles - very frustrating!! Susan's answer was on blogs with embedded comments, untick the 'stay signed in' box and you should be able to leave a comment (once you sign back in it should publish). For those with embedded comment forms on their blogs, if you switch to either pop-up or full page comments your followers will no longer have this problem. The setting is under Settings then Comments.
Update - I just did a search and came up with this answer from the Blogger support forum, it might help if the above suggestion doesn't.

That is exactly my problem, some I can leave comments on some I can not, and that must be why. But I can't get it to work the other way you mentioned either. Upsetting to me.

Bonnie, you didn't say exactly what your problem was - were you having trouble commenting on a blog that doesn't have an embedded comment form?

I was having the same problem till another blogger told me what to do.
I'm glad it was just something so simple.
I've popped over from my cousin Norma's blog, your work is amazing. I crochet, mainly big things now and I admire your petite beauties.
