Or, as I call it "Evil Robot box of Death."
Ok, maybe I don't call it that, but you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. I hate, hate, HATE this little box. I squint, scratch my head, and wonder what some of the letters are. Then I try typing and usually get it wrong. I assumed there were just a lot of paranoid teacher bloggers out there that were deathly afraid of spam. Turns out, this is a default feature of Blogger. Which meant that I had this awful feature on my blog as well. Gasp! The horror!
The good news is that I figured out how to turn it off and made a video to show you how to do this as well. You'll be happy to hear that it only takes a few steps and does not require you to alter any code in your blog :) The better news is that I recently discovered an even easier way to disable Word Verification and shared it in an updated blog post!
I hope this little lesson fills your heart with joy. Actually, I hope it inspires you to turn Word Verification off on your own blog- then it can fill my heart with joy next time I comment on your post. Or you can keep the Evil Robot Box around, I suppose that would be ok too.
