Blog tip for "newbies"

I'm sure most of you are already aware of this, but for those who aren't.......

Did you know there was a way of being notified each time someone left a comment on your blog? Well, I wasn't aware of this, until just recently. There were a few times when I missed comments that "new followers" and/or "new visitors" had left on previous posts. I tried to scout them out but it meant reading every post I had posted and trying to remember how many comments had previously been left on that particular post. My memory just isn't what it used to be (lol) so I was finding this verrrrrrry difficult, not to mention time-consuming! lol

Then, I decided to do some sleuthing and this is what I discovered:-

On Blogger (or I'm sure other accounts are similar), do the following:-


  1. while logged into your blog, click on "Customize"

  2. go into the "Posting" tab and click on "Comment Moderation"

  3. then click on "Comment Settings"

  4. scroll down to the very bottom where it says:- "Comment Notification E-mail"

  5. insert your e-mail addy

  6. click on "save settings"

You will now receive an e-mail each time someone leaves a comment on your blog. Not only that, but the e-mail notification will let you know which post the comment was left on. You can even read the comments in your e-mail, w/out going back to your blog each time.

Now, how cool is that, eh? :-) I shouted "Eureka" when I discovered this! LOL Hope it helps someone else!
