I am in Rome and my blog is being read by friends and family back in Australia and they are all having difficulty commenting on it. Two people have managed to send a comment each but when they tried to do more it doesn't work. I have used this blog before and had no problem like this. Can anyone help?

Your Italy blog currently isn't set up to accept comments from people who aren't travellerspoint members. To prevent comment spam, this is a setting you need to manually enable. Go to your blog settings page, and set "Anyone can comment (not just Travellerspoint members)" to yes. You can then also set a time limit for how long after publication this remains possible (generally older blog entries receive much more spam than real comments).

The first time anyone comments (based on their filled in email address), it'll go to your personal comment moderation queue, and you need to manually approve the comment. After that, comments from the same person should show up automatically.

Of course, your friends and family can also become members of travellerspoint in order to comment. I indeed see two usernames having commented on your blog before; one of them has commented on four different blog entries. What do you mean with "it doesn't work" in this context? Can they still log in to travellerspoint, but do their comments not show up, or can they not even log in?
