! ! ! ! !

What I have to share with you, 
is kind of funny…..

I have been wondering….

for a loooong time now….

why was I not getting email notices
of new posts
from my subscriptions ??????

And time went on….

I would get lost in the Notification bell icon
and work my blog interactions thru that.

Or peek in on the Reader and interact there.

BUT, today….when I realized
I missed an important post
of a dear bloggered friend….

and I missed it by 11 days….???

That was UNACCEPTABLE ! ! !

I was left speechless of what to say to her!
I did visit her post and gave her Octopus Hugz….
that was all I could conceive of at the time….
And I have not told her yet,
about what I discovered.

Do yourselves a favor, and drop over to Dolly’s blog….

Not only will you discover awesome foods and recipes,
you will get a unique learnings, in the process.
Dolly is a talented cook and fabulous author….
or is that a fabulous cook and a talented author?
Either way….
She has taught me things,
which I had no intentions of learning.
(thank you for that, Dolly!)


without a doubt,
she is very deserving of the
Best Food Blog Award

Back to my story. [see how I get sidetracked?]

…well, that is when I said NO MORE of
”not getting emails from those I follow!!!!”

I spent several hours today,
hunting, searching, discovering, learning…….
and a bit of the frustrations of unknown research,
asking the WordPress Support variations of:





And after hours of much trial and error and outdated help topics.…..
I found my answer……

And with a little click of my mouse,
I will now get notified when she posts.


Not only was Dolly’s email turned OFF…..
I found nearly 70 of my subscription emails turned off.

And in the process,
I have discovered why I am not getting
email notice of another bloggered friend.

I have missed many of his recent posts also!

However, this one…I am not able to correct.
And I feel that by posting the screen shot,
it is the easiest way I can think of to notify him,
so he is able to follow up on it.

And that concludes my post of:

“a funny thing happened to me
on my way through WordPress today”

Thank you,



  1. Love it!!. Every now and then my ipad mini would make a sound, told my college age daughter that I was hearing strange noises. Click here, click there and in less than 20 seconds she says “ma, how long have you heard these sounds?” It is word press letting you know someone was looking at your blog.
    Thank you for the good chuckle.

  2. Your attitude towards WordPress and blogging is the way it should be! I, and I believe I speak for everyone else in WordPress, really respect your conviction to not only write new content but to also read and interact with others’ blogs. Thank you for that! This community needs more people like you.

    • You are very welcome, Wiz! And thank you!
      For me, reading and interacting with other blogs is over half fun of being at WP.
      Otherwise, it’s a lonely visit here to just write….
      Enjoy your weekend ahead,

  3. I never get email notifications from anyone. I thought you just go search the Reader, which is how I found this post. Thanks for the great info. I’ll go make that adjustment.

      Most of my blogging enjoyment is reading and finding others.

      You might want to contact support about your URL. I am not able to find you at all. Cannot turn on email notice for you either. 😦

  4. Reading is motivating and writing is fun.. and ur blogs sure do motivate me..

    Loved the pic of quotes”everything happens for a reason”.

    Words can sometimes be words
    It can motivate at times for sure is what I learned.
    U my friend inspire me a lot
    May your words or the picture from your shot.
    Love the spirit in you,
    And the enthusiasm that’s in abundance for you.
    Prayers and love is all I can send,
    You are my unseen friend but my strength as well.

    Hugs to you..
