Sneak Peak or Blooper?

For those of you that receive blog post updates via email, as well as followers that actively follow, my apologies for the recent update about an upcoming post on electronic die cutters.  Somehow while working in draft mode, something got published.  Those darn computer mouse.

But as I'm writing this I want to share with you another area I've been researching - why are so many people having problems leaving comments on blogs and bloggers having problems not getting email updates on the comments from blogger?  I've spent time researching the internet to find this sporadic problem has been going on for sometime.  Symptoms:
- those leaving comments on certain blogs will receive an odd kickback message
- those blogs with the issue may not realize they have a comment, as the blogger tool didn't send them an email notification and the comment shows up later in the Que for approval.

One recommendation is for all of us to remember to frequently clear our cookies/cache on our computers.  But I'm not convinced that is the solution for all of the problems we are seeing.  Click here if you want to follow the current online chat about this topic in the google/blogger help forum. And, feel free to add comments to the thread on this forum.  From my experience, the more people that complain about a problem on this forum the more likely a solution will be provided by Google/Blogger.

Stay tuned and you'll get the real details on e:cutters soon vs the sneak peak that was released earlier.

Thank you for this - I have tried as far back as April with this and eventually told it was a fix for the Heartblead Virus on Yahoo that was causing it - no resolution. It is affecting AOL, Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast, RR, and some others - so this is a little more far reaching than a glitch.

Thanks for bringing this to light. I routinely have several followers who comment and their comments never hit my mail. I thought it was some setting I had wrong. Will look at this.

I'm so glad you wrote this post, although the problem has been going on for months, I don't think there's a lot of awareness or people think it's something they have wrong. Since it happened pretty much over night to so many blogs I'm pretty sure Google changed something.

One blogger's comments on my posts only says 'comments' in the subject line, not what all the other bloggers comments say.
