Came this close

Well, I was on the verge of saying "F. it all" and shutting down the blog.  No comments, little traffic, so why put the work into it?  Luckily, Buster mentioned (on Ernie's blog) that Blogger has for some reason stopped sending comment notifications to bloggers.  Turns out I have comments.  Someone's visiting.

Sweet.  Well, I guess I'll stay on, then.  I'm glad, as it would be just more depression I do not need at this point....

(Bad day?  Me?)

Update: Had my contact email in my profile--Blogger took it off.  I don't suppose there's any "why?" to be asked here.  Just the usual internet dysfunction--changes without cause.  Imagine if real life were like cyberspace.  You'd be driving along, and your car would vanish on you.  Your house would have its rooms rearranged when you came home.  Your friends wouldn't recognize you.  ("Please reenter your username."  "Damn it, I'm Lee!" "Name not recognized.")

Apologies, but I rarely comment on sharity blogs. Thank you for your work!

Lee Hartsfeld said...

Well, you OUGHT to be sorry. (Just kidding. C-:)

No problem. I'm the same way, but I expect OTHERS to comment. I really should self-reelect on that....

Still trying to get notifications back on.

Lee - I tried Ernie's suggestion, and it seemed to work for me. At least I received an email from Blogger.

I guess Blogger doesn't like me!

Ernie said...

Test, test, test. Working now?

Lee Hartsfeld said...

Getting static on my end.... (:

I visit you any time you pop up on Your Pal Doug's aggregator so I haven't followed until now. But I just signed up, sir, and will see how it goes. Otherwise I bookmark all my regularly-visited sharity blogs which I will do for this site as well.

Thanks, Lee.

Thanks--I deeply appreciate it. Haven't had a new follower in forever. Glad I didn't ditch the blog.

You got lots of lurkers! I know several personally. Keep up the great posts, please!

Lee Hartsfeld said...

Thanks!

I also discovered that taking your email out of that list in your Blogger account doesn't stop the alerts. I had tried it with a couple of different email accounts, and now they're all getting the alert emails. You have to unsub from the bottom of the email to stop it. Very odd...

No! Please don't go, I have enjoyed your blog for a number of years (since 2010) and sorry I have been too lazy (or shy) to comment, but I always check for new posts! :)

Marie,

Oh, that's fine. Just glad you're out there! Thanks for signing in, and I plan to stick around for a while. I love blogging!
