Good day, everyone!
I’ve spent the better part of my morning pinning like crazy on Pinterest.
Yes, it is wonderful to be on break and have access to my laptop again.
But alas, happiness is never complete.
Because now that I’m finally able to read my favorite blogs, I find myself dealing with a very annoying situation.
And what is it, you ask?
The infuriating default check mark that instructs WordPress to: “Notify me of follow-up comments via email.
It’s not that I don’t find other readers’ comments interesting.
It’s just that I don’t want my inbox stuffed with WordPress notifications.
If one is only subscribed to two blogs, for example, this isn’t a problem.
Yet for those of us who read blogs like they’re going out of style, this can be quite irritating.
“And by the way – please uncheck the little box below the comments box if you do not wish to subscribe to the flow of comments appearing on this post. Otherwise, you will have a barrage of e-mails from ‘New Comments’. Thanks.”
While I thought this was a wonderful way to remind readers, I don’t know if everyone will always remember to uncheck the box.
Absentminded as I am, I ‘ve been receiving dozens of notifications.
So many in fact, that I’ve had to unsubscribe from the follow up comments.
However, the truth is that unless a really interesting conversation is taking place on a blog, I hardly ever subscribe to follow up comments.
If anyone has been successful in permanently removing this annoying check mark or has effectively dealt with this situation, please let me know.
Before I go insane.
Before I have to “google” more foreign curse words.
Before I pull out all my hair.
Before Roxy thinks I’ve lost it.
Before the Son threatens to move out.
Before the Significant Other threatens to move out.
According to the Son, this attitude is the result of my new found free time.
I say, what does he know?
Can you help?
Happy Monday, people!
