UPDATE: I FIXED IT. For those of you who stumbled into the same problem - there is an innocuous link in the email section. To read this below, I would hardly have thought it would be for me to invite myself. But that's indeed what you must do - invite yourself to receive comments from your own blog. Is it me, or is that stupid??
Then again, I am NOT a computer programmer.
This morning while reading a comment from someone on email, I "fat-fingered" the unsubscribe button on my stupid phone. My phone, which usually takes 14 minutes to process clicking on ANY link, decided today that it would prosecute my request with lightning efficiency. So I accidentally turned my email notifications off. I remembered how in the old days, my preferences would mysteriously change ever few years so I had to go in to fix, which usually took me less than a minute to do.
Well that was the OLD days! I went in today to see about fixing the comment notifications. I went in the "same old way" and here is what I've come up with so far:
When I go into settings / comments, I see the following screen:
By now you're staying - Steve! click on Comment Notification Email! That's a pretty good idea. So I clicked on it and this is what I see:
There are no emails. Nor are there any ways for me to input any emails, either. So - smart folks out there - what do I do here to turn my comment email notifications back on? I hate blogger - but I love interacting with my blog commenters - you are the primary reason I post this stuff.
Am I missing something? Probably also worth mentioning here that when I do an internet search for the problem, I'm coming up with methods to fix this under the old Blogger.
