I still don't get it

Blogger has been giving me - well, not exactly a hard time, but I have been puzzled by some of its vagaries.  And this goes back months.

I think I might have solved one of the problems, although I still don't understand how it arose in the first place.

It's all to do with comments other people are kind enough to leave on my rambling thoughts.  And to do with comments I leave on other people's blogs.  But let's deal first with the comments on this blog.

I have told Blogger through my settings that I want comments sent to my email address.  And sometimes they are.  But some people#s comments are never forwarded by email.  The only way I know that those comments exist is by refreshing the list of posts and looking to see how many comments have been left.

Some comments do get sent to my email - twice!  This is the bit I think I might have solved.  I checked my settings this morning and discovered that Blogger had two email addresses to send comments to.  I suppose I might have entered two different email addresses, but I can't think why.

And when I comment on another blog, I always tick the box asking for future comments on the post to be emailed to me.  But they never are!

Bewitched, Bloggered and bewildered, that's me!

Sometimes, more so lately, the comments emails end up in my "junk" folder because my email program has determined they aren't of any interest to me.

P.S. I could email you to let you know I've left a comment ;-)

Neither of those comment emails have got through!
