Teacher Week Technology Tip Tuesday: Word Verifications

Happy Tuesday Friends,

I'm back to link up with Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week & Technology Tip Tuesday!  
I'm reposting an oldie but goodie: How to turn off your word verification when people comment on your blog.
If you are a new blogger, you may not be aware that every time people comment on your blog, you most likely have a word verification come up on your blog where your commenter has to type in a funky code that they can barely read lol. I'm sure many of you have seen it before. Some bloggers prefer to have this to prevent any spam comments, but if you would like to turn this off here is how you do it:
Go to "Settings"
Click on "Posts and Comments"
Where it says "Show Word Verification", select "no".
And voila! No more robot! 

I hope this has been helpful for you! Please join me tomorrow for "Where I Teach Wednesday". I have been dying to show you some of my classroom pictures, so stay tuned... :)
Have a great night friends,


  1. Hey! I found your blog on the Blog Hop and I am your newest follower! I am new to blogging but found this tip on a blogging101 site and cannot agree more! I have been stalking the Blog Hop and have visited and posted comments to most of the people who are participating! I have to be honest and say that after the second try with the letters and words I just skip leaving a comment! I think this is a definite must! Thanks for sharing!
