About this site

Welcome to the $1,000,000 blog.

My name is Dan and I am going to raise my net worth from practically zero to one million dollars. This is where I write about how I make, save and invest my money.

The Million Dollar Blog is no longer active. All posts about my attempt to make a million dollars will appear on my new website: dmossop.zeeblo.com. Please update your bookmarks. Thanks.

Word verification for comments added

I've just activated Blogger's new word verification for comments feature. Now when you add a comment you'll have to type in a word that you see in an image. This is done to prevent automated spam commenting (of which I think I had my first example). It won't stop spammers who manually add comments, however.

Sorry for the added effort. Please keep the comments coming - they're what make this blog worth writing. That and the million dollars I'll have at the end of it all, of course!

Just added it myself yesterday after getting my first comment spam.

Good luck to you!
I think it's the easiest way to scare people away from commenting, too much hassle.

But that's just my opinion.
This seems to be good, recently I got my first comment spam.
I don't get comment spam..... No one loves me!
We were getting so much spam that I stopped allowing anonymous comments for awhile. I really didn't want to do that, so I was glad to have the turing number system. Haven't had a single spam with only a link since then (probably have hundreds now LOL)!

That's probably a good idea. The only reason why I haven't done it yet is because I haven't been spammed all that much yet.
Good to see it hasn't stopped everyone commenting :)
down with spam comments!
