Blogger Issue and Fix

THE PROBLEM:
As most of you are already aware of by now. Somewhere around May 25th bloggers stopped getting email notifications when someone posted on their blog post.
Also, readers who followed a blog via email are not getting an email letting them know of new post.
On top of that, we were all made "No- Reply bloggers.

It's frustrating for us bloggers because simply a lot of us blog to share our stories with others and we like to hear from you.

Basically what it summed up to was the connection between Blogger/Google/and emails updated its security protection. After all the complaining and bitterness toward blogger, I come to realize this is not such a bad thing.

Just hear me out a minute.

How many times do you visit a website only to find out later your email starts filling up with unwanted emails? If your like me, you spend hours "unsubscribing" to unwanted mail. Well, blogger does not want that happening to their readers.

Before, A blogger could simply add an email to their email settings and that person would start getting an email every time the blogger post. Maybe the reader does not want to know every time you post. Then they too are getting unwanted emails.  Get it?  But there is a fix.


HOW TO FIX IT (for the blogger):
You can get back to normal and start getting those email notifications again when someone comments on your blog.

1. Go to your dashboard and then to settings over to the left side.
2. Click on "emails"
3. In "Comment notification email", delete your email
4. In "Email post to", Delete any of those emails ( you may want to jot them down for later).
5. Click Save. YOU MUST CLICK SAVE 
6. Now add your "notification email" again and the "post to emails" if any.
7. Click Save again.

You and your email recipients will get an email to agree to getting notifications. This is a one time email just giving blogger permission to send emails. You can opt in or out. (Bloggers should accept).

FOR  READERS / BLOG FOLLOWERS
If you want to get email notification again when a post comes live, Just subscribe to emails by filling out the form on the right side of my page (for mobile users, just scroll down to the bottom).
If your favorite blog does not have a subscribe option, let them know so they can add you.

Hope this helps. Happy Blogging.

  4. I'm like you . . . I might like it better the way it is now. I really haven't decided yet. It is very kind of you to share the fix, because people like me(not technical) truly appreciate it when you savvy young folks help us out with your internet knowledge.
    Thanks . . . oh by the way, you said on my blog that you don't know what new mowed hay smells like. It smells like heaven. I suggest you take a trip to a farm at cutting time. Most farmers are very happy to share their lifestyle and will welcome you to their farm.
