Dear Friends and Readers,
I have realised over the last couple of weeks that your comments are not being sent to my email inbox as they were previously. I was feeling a little bit disheartened about not receiving any comments from you and my apologies to anyone who has commented on my blog posts, as I haven't seen them to reply to as I always like to.
I even asked my friend Julie on Tropigal to send me a comment this morning, as a test, and as confirmation that there is a problem, I didn't receive it to my email as I should. Thanks Julie. :)
I have since been doing some reading on this and apparently many bloggers on Blogger are experiencing this problem. Some people are suggesting work arounds, and google promises a solution but it's been taking a while.
One work around is: "After you write a post and publish it, click like you want to write a comment - or you could even leave a simple TEST comment, then CLICK the NOTIFY ME of follow up comments box. You should then start getting all the comments sent to your email box. That might be ok for future posts but not previous ones where the comments have stopped or been sent."
I also went into the Settings - Posts, Comments and Sharing, to check the Embedded box was ticked, and changed it to receive comments from User with Google Accounts. Google notified me that "Blogger no longer supports Open ID. Open ID comments & settings may have changed" so I changed the setting from Receive comments from Anyone - incl. Anon. users to User with Google Accounts. I hope that was the right thing to do. Time will tell I suppose.
However since all of that, I have found some new comments in the Comments Awaiting Moderation section which normally I don't need to check because they are sent automatically to my Email account for moderation.
I'm sorry this story is so long winded, but could you please let me know if you are also experiencing this problem or have found another solution. Gosh I feel like I am problem solving back in the work force:)
Also sorry to the wonderful bloggers I normally follow and comment on. We have been back from holidays for nearly a month I think, and I can't believe that I am still catching up on some things including the routine of reading some of your blogs. I will get there.
Thanks for your patience with this and I hope to receive a comment from you soon. If for whatever reason you find that you can't comment, I have setup an email contact box on the right hand side of my blog which you can also contact me from. For now after I publish this, I am going to click the NOTIFY ME box and also check the Comments Moderation section from here on in. Hope that works.
Bye for now
