Rating Widget- What's Up With That???

For some strange reason I had a “5 Star Rating” widget appear, at the bottom of each post, on my blog. It would allow readers to rate my posts, as if I want you all to do that! After many hours and much aggravation, I have discovered how to remove it. If the rating system has mysteriously appeared on your blog and you wish to remove it you can follow these steps:

1) From your main blog page click on Customize in the upper right corner

2) Press the Layout Tab

3)You will see the Blog Post section and within that you will see Edit, click on it

4)This bring up the Configure Blog Post where you should see “5 star rating” ~ you need to remove the check from that box.

That's it, and it only took me about 4 hours to locate how to do this! I could have made some real progress on my many stitching projects wouldn't you agree? :p

Until next time...

I do wish the blog hosts would quit adding these sorts of things in. Good for you, letting everyone know how to remove it!
