My new friend Sheryl who blogs at I Am – Blog published instructions on how to receive comment notifications via email agian. I’ll admit that I tried this in the past – many months ago - and it didn’t work but I also saw new words in the settings this morning which tells me Google / Blogger has made some changes. So, even though she learned about this from someone else, THANK YOU, SHERYL for sharing it with me and all your readers!
Here are the instructions…
Go to your Settings, select Email.
Delete the email(s) listed under “Comment Notification Email” and, this is important, click SAVE SETTINGS
I went a step further and closed my browser, waited a few minutes then opened it again. (because I am crazy like that!
I went back into Settings, selected Email again and added the email address where I want to receive notifications.
Again, click SAVE SETTINGS
I received a Comment Subscription email. It gave me the option to Subscribe or Decline the invitation to receive comment notifications. I selected Subscribe and immediately received a confirmation.
I went to my most recent blog post and added a ‘test’ comment.
Guess what? It worked!
Please help spread the word. I heard this didn’t work for some folks but it may be that they didn’t save their settings after each step? I would be interested in knowing if this does or doesn’t work for you if you are a Blogger client and decide to give this a try.
In other news...I have held on to my sewing mojo and look forward to sharing with you this weekend.
Enjoy the remainder of your week!
