I don’t know what’s going on with WordPress lately, but I’ve been getting some weird results. First, for no particularly good reason that I can readily decipher, I quit receiving email notifications from some of the people that I regularly follow. Even though I haven’t made any (known) changes to my account in weeks, suddenly odd things have started happening. Duplicate post notifications on some, and none on others. Today’s bizarre anomaly takes the cake. When I sat down at the computer today and opened my email, I found I have been inundated with repetitive email notifications for comment replies.
I follow over sixty blogs, and it appears that now I am getting an email notification every time anyone comments on any one of these blogs. I knew something was up when I had over four hundred emails when I checked my email this morning. I promise you I’m not that popular.
So, is anyone else experiencing this craziness? I feel like I’m trapped in some kind of WordPress vacuum, where the hallucinogenics are plentiful, and my In Box is stuck in some kind of weirdo time warp. The good news is lots of you are writing interesting and thought-provoking and giggle-inducing posts, and even better, that you are receiving plenty of comments. The bad news is that my eyes are spinning in dizzy circles from weeding through legitimate new post notifications versus all the unexpected and unsolicited comment notifications. The only saving grace that is keeping me from pulling my hair out in fluffy chunks of consternation is that, thankfully, not every blog I follow is a WordPress blog. For which I am very grateful.
If anyone has any magical cures or worthwhile chants or special potions, or can share the secret handshake that will bring my email back to reality, the blog fairies will bless you abundantly. For now, I’ll just pretend I’ve been Freshly Pressed, instead of Freshly Stressed.
somebody please help me pick up all these spilled marbles
just kidding … I kind of like spilled marbles
