GOOGLE + USERS

Do you have a Google Plus Blog account? The G+ features are "going away" in April 2019. (see https://plus.google.com/communities/115758385206378551362 and https://support.google.com/plus/answer/9195133?hl=en&authuser=0 ).

Email Notifications for Comments left on Blogger Blogs


Google has somewhat fixed the issue of receiving comment notifications on an individual's blog where they are the sole contributor.

The article is here:
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/blogger/V611KU-BUOQ

If you have already done these steps (as I have numerous times), it finally worked for me today.

Go to SETTINGS > EMAIL > and in the two slots on the right:
COMMENT NOTIFICATION EMAIL
and
EMAIL POSTS TO

remove your email address.
(if this is a group blog, you will need to remove everyone's addresses).

SAVE the changes.

Wait a few moments, and go back in to the same slots, adding your email address. CLICK SAVE.

An email will be sent to you offering you the choice to SUBSCRIBE. ACCEPT THE INVITATION TO SUBSCRIBE.

You will now receive email notifications. KEEP IN MIND that each and every notification you receive will have an option to UNSUBSCRIBE. If you accidentally hit unsubscribe, the notifications will stop.

IF YOU ARE PART OF A GROUP-CONTRIBUTOR BLOG, just follow the same steps on each blog to receive comments and posts from those blogs.

hugs,
de

Right on, Donna! I tried it this morning and it worked great!

I thought that getting on the Wordpress platform was a mistake as it's so different from blogger, but it's things like this that I am sort of glad I don't have to mess with it. Glad that they're starting to fix the issues you guys are having! Hope you are well and wish you a happy weekend! HUGS

Thanks Donna! I was wondering what was happening!

Thanks for the instructions, Donna. You are so tech smart. I, too, was wondering what happened. I appreciate the time it took for you to write this all up for us.

If anyone else is struggling like I was with this method. Try what I did. I finally deleted my gmail address and substituted it with a non gmail address and the notifications started straight back up with the next comment I received. I must have deleted and saved and re-entered and saved and accepted that dratted invitation half a dozen times before with it not working.

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for adding this info. I was getting annoyed at having to go and publish them all every couple of days.

This was such a frustrating issue for me! I loved feeling connected to my readers by getting the blog comments in my email inbox and when it stopped I was very sad. I tried your instructions and I got the email to subscribe to comments, so hopefully it will work for me again now! Thank you so much!
