Back in a previous post, I called out for help about my attempt to keep up with all the blogs I follow here on WP.

I was finding that the WP Reader was not working for me. I would lose where I had stopped in my reading, especially when switching between my laptop, tablet, and cellphone. On top of all of that, I was getting them by email depending on where I was or what I was doing.

“Calgon, take me away!” from all this technology!  🙂

Now that I am blogging less this month, I decided to sit down (actually, I am in my bed watching Super Soul Sunday and other OWN network programming), figure it all out and decipher why I get some blog notifications by email but not in the WP Reader, which was adding to my utter and total confusion…

Funny how a little “focused” time on one thing can lead you to an “Aha” moment followed by a loud and resounding “Duh”.

After the first WP challenge back in April, I don’t think that I ever revisited the WP Reader delivery settings and the ones for each individual blog I follow.

And NOW I realize what part of the problem is. Settings can be set to “deliver” on an instant, daily, weekly or not-at-all basis. Guess what? All of the blogs I follow were not set to a consistent delivery method. Some were even set to receive nothing.


I just set everything up so that I will receive your posts on a weekly basis by email on Fridays. This should simplify it all for me.


So if you notice a bunch of “likes” from me, it’s because I am catching up on your posts for the week. I didn’t join WP to be a “hollow follow”.

Task #1? Done.

Next task?

Putting filters on my incoming gmail email…next week.

Right now, time for another coffee!

Happy Sunday!

Great blogs thrive because of comments and readership. I'd love to hear from you!
