The common consensus among netizens in general is that Blogger is quite outdated. That’s a quite fair prejudice given that Blogger was launched in 1999 and Google was not really active or successful in keeping the platform updated to the demands of the time. The user experience in Blogger platform is also plagued with many pain points and limitations. One of the major pain point experienced by users is related to posting comments on Blogger.

When you click on “Publish” button in the comments box, either nothing happens or the comment just gets vanished! From my observation and according to information shared to Blogger users around the world on my twitter account, this issue is mostly experienced by users who use a Safari browser or an Apple device.

Why You Cannot Post Comments in Blogger Blogs?

From what I can infer, the reason you are not able to publish comment is because:

  • Some modern web browsers block cross-site tracking which affect the proper functioning of Blogger’s commenting system. Since Blogger is tightly integrated with your Google account, if you are logged in to Google, you should also be able to post comments in any Blogger blogs without having to login again. This is done with the help of cookies which are getting blocked in some browsers and devices.
  • You are using an iOS device. It seems it is not possible to work around this issue in iOS devices – whether you are using Safari or any other browser.
