I want to change the "no comments" to "leave a comment"

Me too, I have searched the internet, and cannot find a new fix for this!!
I have found old ones before blogger updated and embedded the comment box.

I really wish someone could answer this!

Open the HTML editor for your blog template , Click on "Format Template" option

Search for <a class='comment-link' expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'>

now replace this code

<b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 1'>1 <data:top.commentLabel/><b:else/><data:post.numComments/> <data:top.commentLabelPlural/></b:if>


<b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 1'>Leave a comment (1) <b:else/> Leave a comment (<data:post.numComments/>)</b:if>

Will become the following code

<a class='comment-link' expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'><b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 1'>Leave a comment (1) <b:else/> Leave a comment (<data:post.numComments/>)</b:if>
