Could you please send him to me for a bit? He reminds me so much of my son Jeff (who is now 35).

I wish I were some help on the IP thing but I'm worthless when it comes to that stuff.

I looked on the dashboard, but the only thing you can do (that I can tell) is restrict the blogs so that folks have to check in to read. That, of course, is a bummer, new readers would have to decide to follow your blog before they read your blog. I guess that is not impossible, but it probably isn't probable! I can understand why you would like to filter, but I am also fairly computer illiterate, so I guess I can't help you. Love the picture! Becky

Don't know about the computer thing, but he is so cute!

Farmchick said...

Not sure how to do that either. DO we have to follow you to read your blog?? I will click to become a follower when I am done with this comment! I hope you will stop by and visit again soon oh and also become one of my followers too! Have a great day! PS I put you on my blogroll if that is okay>

Hmmm I dunno Heidi. Is someone giving you crap? Do I need to pack up the Southern Contingent here and Have A Talk with someone???

Go to your dashboard, select settings, select permissions, restrict blog to selected readers.

Anybody view is default.

There is no other way to selectively block certain people.

Sorry about the prospect.

You can limit comments by making it so you have to review them before they can actually post to the site.

But as they say: access is either open or restricted to only those you invite.

LDF said...

I review all comments before posting, but leave access open for anyone to read. If you restrict access, however, please invite me! i'd really miss my "sneak onto the computer and check in on Heidi" breaks during my work day!

Aw, a dandelion! That little lad could bring me a dandelion anytime ... what a cutie pie.

Heidi said...

Thanks Guys - its not a commentor its someone who comes here and doesnt comment, but when I have visited their blog - I just dont like it.... SO, thanks for the help!!!

I'm probably your stalker.

I love that photo! I think if it was black and white it could be from any particular era..it's so classic.

Heidi said...

Maria NO its not YOU!!! LOL I love to have you come here!!! This person lives somewhere else..

Andi said...

Heidi, do you now realize that every person who reads your blog, but seldom comments is in a state of paranoia? What if Heidi doesn't like me? What is wrong with me? Why doesn't she want to be my bff even if I don't comment on her blog? Does stalking her via her blog make me an unlikely candidate for bff? I don't know, these are serious questions I now have.....

But on the upside my word verification is buripo...Is that what you do after eating lots of bean burritos?

Heide said...

Well, crud. Now I'm feeling like I've done something bad and you want to block me. Sorry.

AlaskaAngell said...

you did nothing wrong you are just stating you opinion and that is yours.. if the blog you visit is objectionable then report it. there is some where to do that i think.... i love your blog and would be sad if i couldnt pop in from time to time to check up with whats new in your life.

Mrs Snow said...

Hi hun,

WOW what a paraniod lot we are..We are all thinking its us!!*SMILE*

Have you tried to send a message to the person asking them politely not to visit your blog? I am sure that as much as I love to visit a page if I wasn't wanted I wouldn't stay. If their web page contains offensive material I would report it. If you find it offensive then I am sure that others would as well.

The only other thing that you can do is view all comments before posting. Hope this helps!

What great kids you have :)

Love, Light & Blessings,

Sue :)

best thing to do is let it alone , and that idividual will soon enough fade away . unless of course its me roflmao

seriously , just ignore it and it will stop happening .

Minnie said...

Oops, Is it me? (I tend to cuss a lot more than the average blogger?)

Lucy said...

I'm fairly new to your blog and I enjoy reading it. When you find out how to block somebody, let me know. I've got a former SIL I'd like to block. So far the only answer is going private and I don't want to do that. I don't know the ins and outs of Blogger completely. Yet.

Thanks. Cute kid!
