Do you use Blogger?

Tuesday, July 3, 2018


For all my friends who use Blogger...
  • If you moderate comments and aren't getting email notices
  • If you marked to be notified of any new comments and aren't getting the email notices
  • If you email a copy of the blog (up to 10 addresses) to friends and they aren't getting them
This has been an issue since the GDPR regulations went into effect. There have been hundreds on posts on the Blogger help forum with no real resolution. Blogger needed to put a procedure into place that allowed folks to renew their subscription requests (and yes, that is what they are calling our asking for, on our own blogs, emails about comments).

So how to fix it? I've done this on all our blogs and it's now working again. Several friends on Facebook did as well. Here is what we did...
For anyone using Blogger: if you haven't been receiving email notification of blog comments this is how to fix the issue.

For anyone using Blogger: if you haven't been receiving email notification of blog comments this is how to fix the issue.
  1. Go into Blogger - Settings - Email
  2. Delete your email address in the box for comment notification
  3. Click SAVE SETTINGS
  4. Add your email back and click SAVE SETTINGS
You should receive an email where you confirm that you want to subscribe to receive email  notifications of comments.

If you use any comment moderation, you need to repeat the same steps under Settings - Posts, Comments, Sharing

AND, if you have been using the Email Post To (under Settings - Email), you need to copy the addresses, delete, SAVE SETTINGS, paste them back and SAVE SETTINGS. The recipients will receive an email where they can authorize receiving the posts.

Hope this helps!!

Ciao for now!
