It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Mischief

Okay…  signed into my email this morning, fresh coffee by my side, ready to do the virtual cruise to the blogs I follow – and guess what?

I had BLOCKED EVERYONE AGAIN. Not a blog notification to be had.

Seriously?  Really?  

So, I refer everyone to a blog post of mine from last month, in which I explain how to remedy this hooey.

Just to let you know, I am not ignoring anyone AND that I believe there must be some sort of wacky, Christmas, Elf on the Shelf thing going on, for as in the recent past, I never went anywhere near that crazy option.  

Anyway, carry on!  Have a terrific day, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.

Cheers

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.

Leave Your Comments Below…

Hey kids!

I just love whining and crabbing… well not so much. However, as I have noticed this is effecting many of my favorite blogs and bloggers, I decided to come to YOU and alert you to a most curious happenstance.

Making my rounds today, I have been scattering comments and compliments as is my want. The issue here is that my comments are NOT showing up. I emailed a chosen few and asked if they are in fact, seeing my comments. The response has been a resounding NO.

Is this happening to anyone else here in Word Press Land?  Is anyone else noticing that their comments are not appearing on someone else’s blogs?

Might anyone have some words of wisdom for me? Guidance and directions?  Simply leave your comments below

Defying the Gravitational Pull to the Dark Side

Defy

I noticed, this morning, as I parked myself in front on my laptop with a cafe latte and a bowl of yummy oats that there was something suspicious about my emails. There were so few, it made me question if I was, in fact, checking MY EMAILS!  Seriously, I waken to anywhere from 190 – 290 emails each morning and this morning, there was a mere 90. It was as though my connection to WORD PRESS had gone dark…

Z’up with that??

Naturally, I checked the spam folder and nope, only found that which I would consider spam, a lot…

Away I flew to MANAGE my PREFERENCES and as I was checking the blogs I follow to make certain that I was indeed, turned on, I WAS allowing the posts to come through. However, they were NOT!  Also, I noticed that even though I was typing in URL’s of certain blogs, they kept telling me that these were not valid…

I also noticed that after I went through and turned some off and then on again, I received a notification in my email that I was now following a particular blog. And little by little, I began receiving notices of some posts.  But NOT as before.

deep sigh

I also began going through the posts in my READER and after an hour of that…  But that can be maddening and I actually had to get up and do the dishes just to regain my sanity. New posts kept being added… I was jumping through too many hoops.

Okay, so as of now, I am missing a lot of what the lot of you are posting and I do not know why. If someone has a thought and are willing to enlighten me, I would be most grateful.  I will give it my best to attempt to keep up with everyone until this situation rights itself.  Please forgive me if I miss something and know that I intend to defy this gravitational pull to the dark side!

Love, Annette Rochelle
