    Default FV Bloggers , please help me?

    Those of you who keep a blog on the FV , could you please help me.
    I really , really need to spellcheck my blog and I can't figure out how.
    I know this makes me sound pathedic and maybe I am but does that mean I shouldn't be allowed to blog? Further more how can I spellcheck my posts here. I'm tired of looking dumb.
    I know you guys are myfriends and won't laugh at me (MUCH). Maybe I am too sensitive to blog. TIA

    I don't think any one is going to laugh at you. But if you really want to spell check, you should be able to look at your paragraph as you are typing it and see red squiggle lines under the words that are spelled wrong. When you see that line, right click on the word and the correct spelling should come up, just click on the right word and it will replace your incorrectly spelled one. It should work the same way with your blog. I hope that helps.

    when you post in the quick reply box or the post reply box you can right click as you are typing on the box. in the drop down menu thing towards the bottom it should have the option to "spell check this field" click on that. hope that helps. I don't know any other way to do it.

    Nope, no red lines under the misspelled words.

    And yes, they are laughing. I have been told so.

    If you switch to Mozilla Firefox browser (as opposed to Internet Explorer) it has a built in spell checker that will underline all the misspelled words w/ a red line. On message boards, emails, your blog. Every place you type. You right click over them & it will give you the right spelling. Just like it Microsoft Word.

    You can download it free at http:/www.mozilla.org You download it and instead of clicking the "blue e" to open Internet Explorer, you'll click the orange & blue "fox". I prefer FF over IE anyway.

    I agree, so not cool! There are other forms of intelligence other than spelling. I mean, look at your primitives! WOW! So, you can't spell, oh well. You have other things to focus on-- and blog bashing isn't one of them. So good for you!

    I liked your blog.. don't let anyone make you feel bad about it.. I actually liked the misspelling.. it was the real thing. Sometimes I think too polished blogs, leave out what they really wanted to say.

    In addition to her lack of tact, your critic also has five technical errors in her final paragraph.

    I loved reading your blog. I also can not spell and I will change my words and write something else.

    Thanks for all the tips ladies. Dh helped me. The reason I couldn't find the spell check was because I had to turn my filter off first.
