Reunited and It Feels So Good

Well, it appears that I have been reunited with your wonderful blogs!

The man with the key was Ajay, a customer service expert at Word Press.  He guided me to the proper page, and sure enough, I found that a little box had been checked and as a result, I, I had BLOCKED ALL EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS from blogs I follow.

huh?

Of course I did NOT do that. Have NO idea how it happened, especially since I didn’t even know that this page existed.

Okay friends, here are the two pages for YOU to use should you ever find yourself exiled in similar fashion.

https://wordpress.com/me/notifications is where I found a page that had this at the top

NOTIFICATIONS   COMMENTS   UPDATES  

READER SUBSCRIPTIONS

CLICK ON the LAST ONE

You will see SUBSCRIPTION DELIVERY and at the bottom there was a little box next to the words BLOCK EMAILS (block all email updates from blogs you’re following on Word Press)

Yes, that was CHECKED.  I had no idea how it got that way, so I unchecked it.

Then I hit SAVE NOTIFICATION SETTINGS and I was good to go.  Sure enough, I began receiving emails of blog posts from a few bloggers.

Also, if you are still having troubles, or troubles of a different sort, with your Word Press account, here is another page to go to:

https://wordpress.com/help/contact 

That is where I hooked up with Ajay, by going to the space where it said I could talk to someone. I did keep that window open and checked it every few minutes. However, if you have to bail, they WILL email you to let you know someone has answered your question.

So, not that I am a pessimist, we will see how long this lasts. Obviously, more people blog earlier in the day, than in the evening.

  1. Remember where you found that page…this happened to me once…and now it happens often. They suggested my email and the blog decides one or the other is spam and blocks the lot periodically.

    • I wrote it all down. What a load of hooey, eh? I guess I’ll have to have a chat with my email and ask it why it got so superior, eh? 🙂

      • I have the feeling that as soon as you accidentally catch a ‘spam’ rather than ‘delete’ button, it goes into self-defence mode. I am more inclined to blame human error than the computer… and have found that when this happens, I have a spam box full of stuff I wanted. Catch the button once and it sends everything in there…
        If it isn’t that, then I’d say it is just being ornery 😉

  2. GREAT that they know how to fix it. Better still would be knowing how to fix the screwy code that creates it – which *starts* by believing those of us who say we did NOT change the settings ourselves.

    Thanks for the links to the fix-its, however, since I doubt that WordPress is ever going to actually fix screwy code.

  5. This is good to know, Annette. I have had a few mishaps with social media accounts where it does things that I am sure I had no hand in whatsoever.

  8. Ahh, so it was the tick in that box then? Glad you got to the bottom of it, Annette. But, like Sue said, check that box every now again, especially if your email box goes very quiet. 😎

  13. That’s strange. It’s happened to me and a few writers I know. We stopped receiving emails of posts. If you click on the reader >manage subscriptions on the top left icon when on your blog, it shows all the blogs we subscribe to, then click on settings for each one and it allows you to choose how you want your notification – daily, weekly, etc. A few times I’d found WP gremlins mysteriously check ‘no emails’. ❤

  16. Valuable information and thank you for sharing it. Perhaps he will wave his magic wand in my direction. I am unable to change my email address and for months I get none of my messages…
