Just wondering couse usually there is a pop up that comes out for you to make comments and a space to enter your blog or other webpage.

Yes, it does.
umm when you make a comment on someone's blog. Does that do anything in terms of link popularity, esp on a high pageranked blog?
Especially when it is a standard link, not a redirection.
You can observe a lot of spam in blogs nowadays however there are some rumours that value of links coming from blogs and guestbooks will be decreased because of this.
I've read about it at webproworld.com forum where one of Google reps said something about that on one of the latest conferences.

madone, you say in your initial message that you went around signing a lot of blogs, and now your site isn't doing as well as before. It could be one of two things: over the last few weeks, Google has started deploying better technology that negates the effect of blog comment spamming. The changes haven't fully rolled out yet, but it could be that your site just isn't doing as well now that the blog comments aren't doing your site any benefit anymore. The other possibility is that if you did enough blog comments to show up in the blacklist mentioned earlier, or if someone filed a spam report about your site, Google could have investigated, verified that the comments were done by the site in question (you admit this in your first post) and taken manual action to correct the spam.
Most of Google's effort in this area has been at updating our algorithms to spot and negate this type of spam automatically (i.e. no human in the loop). But Google does take blog comment spam seriously. If you really overdid it (and no offense, but by saying that you did it and that bloggers were sharing information about your site--that's pretty serious), then you could have triggered someone manually investigating. My hunch would be that our automatic algorithms just removed the blog comments links though, and now your site isn't doing as well. That's more likely.

What surprised me, was that only now the value of blog links is going down a bit, you could just as well publish all your own newsletters on your site with more success.

Cutts, who wrote the adult safe search filter for Google, kicked off the first conference session in Orlando, Florida, today by revealing Google's plans for cracking down on spammers.
For this reason, Cutts said guestbooks and blog comments are likely to have lesser value.
