Excuse me while I’m having technical difficulties.

Posted on October 2, 2011


I’m having a huge problem now, and I don’t know how to solve it.  Awhile ago, whenever I tried to open an email notification of a person’s latest post on a blog that I follow or notification of someone who liked my post or whose comment had to be moderated, all I got was a blank screen.   I know it’s not my computer, because I can open other kinds of emails from WordPress, like comments from people who have commented on my posts in the past. 

The “like”s aren’t a problem, because I don’t have to respond to those people (I’m not Sally Field) and I can see the regular comments by going to my blog post.  I can see the comments to be moderated by going to my dashboard.  But the huge problem is reading new posts from people.  Unless their blog name and website are the same, I don’t know how to access them.  I used to have links on my homepage, but when I switched to a new theme, the links disappeared.

Now, to make matters worse, a friend told me she no longer is receiving my new posts. I emailed WordPress several days ago, but they seem to be busy doing other things that have nothing to do with me, and so no one responded.

So, the bottom line is that I can’t read new posts from some people and responding to comments demands another step.  I’m so frustrated, I simply don’t look at my email. 

Has anyone else had this problem in the past or is having this problem now?  Has anyone been successful in having WordPress respond?  Has anyone out there stopped getting my posts?  Of course, I realize that last question is like asking, “Is anyone out there dead?”  If you are, you probably won’t hear the question.
