On Blogging--Blog Advice Wanted

So I have two problems with Blogger, at least I think the problem is with Blogger. This is not a rant. Overall Blogger serves me well and the price is right.
Problem #1: I broke down and tried to add Mr. Linky--no luck. I followed the instructions to the best of my ability and no Mr. Linky. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice?
Problem #2: Blogger eats comments. A long time ago I noticed on my dashboard that there were 3 comments noted that did not exist. In other words, Blogger told me I had 3 unpublished comments but if I clicked on Moderate Comments there were none. I decided to live with this since everything else was fine. Well, yesterday 3 increased to 4 then 5. I had thought that maybe the comments never existed but today I found that I did have e-mail notification of actual comments that Blogger wouldn't let me publish. But if I clicked publish comments on the e-mail the comments were appropriately published. Strange, to say the least. I am kind of attached to comment moderation--I haven't gotten hate mail yet but I would like to be able to get rid of same. I guess since this isn't a rant and I have no real plan to change anything, this is more of a question. Has anyone else had this problem?

I don't have such questions.

Linky works well for me and I don't use Comment moderation.

But for the Linky, did you add a piece of HTML code into your template as instructed?
Check it out if you didn't.

Hope it help.

I will Exercise for Comments!

You have to add the linky code in the html of your template as well as in the post. Also.. it will give you an error when you publish that post (he says this) and to click the box to ignore it.

I don't know about the comments.. except to maybe go check your settings, especially the email where your comments are being sent.

That's really odd. I'm sorry I don't have any advice for you. :-(

I'm sorry about all the problems. I can't help. I don't use comment moderation. I hope you figure it out soon!

I have had trouble with Mr. Linky and just gave up.

I also have two comments that need to be moderated and I don't have that on my page.
