Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I haven't been getting your sweet comments emailed to me. I don't know what's up with Blogger, but apparently it's a big problem right now. A lot of us aren't getting email notifications when we get a comment. It seems to have just stopped working a couple of weeks ago.
(If you could be so kind as to leave me a comment on this post, I'd appreciate it. That way, I can tell if I was able to fix the problem. Thanks!)
I went ahead and responded to all of your comments in my last post, so if you left a comment and didn't get a response emailed to you, please check the post and you'll see my reply in the comments section. I'm so sorry. I know that's a lot of trouble and it is for me too. Hopefully Blogger will fix it soon.
If you use Blogger, have you noticed the comment choices have changed? If you go to your 'settings' and then 'posts, comments and sharing' it used to give you four choices of comments to accept:
1. Anyone (includes anonymous users)
2. User with Google accounts
3. Only members of this blog
4. Registered users, includes openID
I always had mine set on 4. Registered users, includes openID. That way, even someone without a Google account could comment. But that option has disappeared. #4 Registered users isn't even an option. They've removed it completely. Now it has my settings as 2. User with Google accounts. What? I certainly didn't change it and now that #4 isn't an option, I changed it to 1. Anyone (includes anonymous users) Because I'm allowing anyone to comment (hoping that'll fix the problem and my comments will be emailed to me again) I also put on comment moderation. Meaning I'll have to approve every comment before it's published. Since I'm allowing anonymous users, comment moderation is pretty much necessary. That shouldn't be too big of a deal and if it fixes the problem, it'll be worth it.
If you use Blogger for your blog platform, have you noticed this problem too? Are you still getting your comments emailed to you? It's so frustrating because I kept having to check my post to see if there were any comments. It's much easier when they're just emailed to me.
And because I can't do a post without a pic, here's Finn relaxing with his foot propped up...
Edited to add: Well it doesn't look like my "fix" worked because it's still not emailing me comments for moderation. So I changed my settings back to "User With Google Accounts" and took off moderation. We'll see...
