This happened, I swear, for like, the fourth time within the past few months.
On my last Weirdpress post, I mentioned how I read posts from those who blog less often, on my notifications, and posts from hyper-productive blog blasters, on the WordPress Reader.
So I was pittling around on WordPress, yesterday, and something told me—perhaps it was my fairy blog mother—to check through my list of blogs I follow. For the fourth time, it seems as though a mischievous digital poltergeist had gotten into my Notification Settings, and turned off new post notifications from EVERYBODY that I read, through my notifications! So I had to swipe through the long-ass list of blog names, and one-by-one, click on those who I read in my notifications, and toggle the New Posts button “on” for each and every one of them. If this happened a few times already, it’s most likely going to keep happening, every so often. Ugh! It’s so annoying! It’s like, because I flip back and forth to read posts from two different sections of WordPress, the thing gets confused. I must either read all blogs on the Reader, or toggle the New Notifications button “on” for the entire infinite number of you that I follow. Or else it “can… not… compute”
Now I have to remember to check my list of followed blogs, regularly, to make sure the thing doesn’t keep turning people’s new post notifications off on me. Pain in the ass.
Anybody else encounter this quirk?
