A note for blogger users

Is this the beginning of the end? Or is Blogger stripping back its features in preparation for offering a paid-for "enhanced" version, which will include things we'd had before and now been deprived of?

(This is from Liz's blog) -

 For reasons unknown, Blogger is no longer sending email notifications of new comments. 

So, if you are a Blogger author, you might want to check the Comments section of your dashboard. I've added that to my daily email checking routine.

If you are a Blogger reader, you might want to send an email with this info if you have commented on a Blogger post in the past week and it has yet to receive a response from the author.

Do not panic. At least, no more than usual with Blogger. They have posted in the community help site that this is a glitch that they are aware of and are looking into how to fix. But if you ask me, they are not too concerned about making it a priority. This problem has been going on for at least 2 weeks now, maybe 3. But I suppose those of us who know should make a wider spread of the information.

What I'd REALLY like them to fix is my comments being e-mailed to the blog owner getting bounced back as spam. The comments still post to the blog unless the owner is moderating, in which case they will not know there are comments to be moderated unless they happen to go into their dashboard and notice.

I had noticed this too so this comment from Sheila above is reassuring. However, I no longer seem to be receiving notifications when whom I people follow post. Perhaps this is part if the same problem?
