THIS IS AN ALERT FROM THE EMERGENCY BLOGGER-GOING-CRAZY INTERNATIONAL WARNING SYSTEM. THIS IS NOT A TEST. THIS IS AN ACTUAL EMERGENCY

My computer doesn't have one of these buttons. I knew I should've purchased a fancier model.

Have you noticed that I don’t comment to each and every one of your posts? Are you miffed when I don’t answer questions you may have posed to me on your comments section to something I astutely observed on your post I did comment on?

Before you think I’m being lazy or simply ignoring you, please consider the possibility that I am a technological duffus OR that the Cyber-Overlords are gunning for me.

No matter what I do to check and recheck settings, email alerts that you wonderful bloggers that I follow have: 1. posted something new or: 2. commented on a comment I made on your post WILL NOT reach my email.

I'd be fine if notices of your new blog posts and comments came to me this way.

I have been forced to seek out your new posts daily (well, as daily as I can manage) and rarely go back to your older posts to see if you responded to my comments because, hey, Scrappy needs to be walked and I have to shower at least once a week.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS A WAY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM? Here’s what I’ve done to no avail:

  1. checked 50 times to make sure I’m supposed to be alerted instantly via email when you post something new
  2. created and activated a virgin Hotmail account just for blog alerts in case I was maxing out my dizzylorna account
  3. reviewed my settings in my dashboard, which I think only apply to my, posts, not yours
  4. prayed
  5. contacted WordPress Help, who seem to be vacationing in an area where the internet is permanently down

Any and all suggestions to resolve my problem, or even tales of similar problems will be greatly appreciated. Until this gets fixed (gosh, I’m such an optimist), I’ll do my best to let you know I’m reading your posts if you’ll forgive my “silent treatment” on comment threads and posts I happen to miss.

I even tried linking myself directly into my computer to configure this problem out. All I got out of that experiment was a really bad hat-hair, horrible bags around my eyes, and oddly puffy lips. Kids, don't try this at home. The Cyber-Brain Melder 500 has been recalled due to the hat-hair issue anyway.

THIS IS WAS AN ALERT FROM THE EMERGENCY BLOGGER-GOING-CRAZY INTERNATIONAL WARNING SYSTEM. THIS IS WAS NOT A TEST. THIS WS AN ACTUAL EMERGENCY

Thank you…
