blogger and comment notification

I noticed some bloggers were doing a workaround for not receiving comment notifications on their blogs.  The workaround was to include a comment and then...?  It seemed to be laborious to me and I didn't follow up with understanding all of the details. 

Well, I am not getting notifications now either and I have found a way to fix it. 

1.  Go to Blogger dashboard
2.  Select Settings, then Email
3.  There is a box for comment notification email.  My email was in there.  I removed it and hit "Save"
4.  Then typed in my email address, and hit "Save" again.  For good measure, I actually refreshed the page in between these actions #3 and #4.
5.  I got an email from Blogger asking me to "subscribe" to comments on my blog. Done.


I believe this will work.  Yes, it does.

    1. I don't understand why this happened but at least we figured out how to make it go away. Blogger should be more responsive to their users.

  2. I did this and it worked for a couple days, then it was back to not getting my comments. Easier for me to leave the first comment than to go through those steps on Blogger – repeatedly. :-/

  4. I'm confused. Do you receive all of your comments via email? Is that how you know know people have left comments? Or are you talking about how people leave comments on your blog? Thanks for helping inform the uninformed!

    1. If someone comments, I will be notified via email. This is important if a comment is left during a quiet period on the blog. For example, Coco commented and I was not aware because I did not look at my blog.

I love your comments and enjoy the conversation that results.
