When I started by blog, I didn’t know much about how to manage the notifications in my app and my computer/ laptop.
As I got into the groove, my readership grew and each and every time anyone commented, liked or followed my blog, I would get an email. So in addition to writing, reading and commenting a new task was added. That of deleting hundreds of emails from my inbox. This not only consumed a lot of time but caused a lot of irritation to me.
Every time I received an email with a notification, I was asked if I was getting too many emails and if I wanted to reduce the number of emails. I would try to uncheck the different boxes in the hopes of reducing the influx of these emails, but no substantial improvement happened.
Then one day I hit the jackpot! I found out how I could stop all email notifications and get the notifications in my app reader or on my laptop reader. I took a screen shot to show what should be done to achieve this result.
This is how it’s done;
Open the settings tab in your WordPress site.
Open the discussion tab;
In under the comments section, you will see the email preferences;
In the email preferences, un-select all the tabs which notification you don’t want to get via email.
This is Step 1.
Open the reader. Now go to the manage follows. Open the posts of the people you want to receive notifications from, and click on the three little dots near the bottom of each post in the right corner. You will be given the option to turn on site notifications. This will enable you to receive notifications in your reader about new posts from your favorite bloggers.
This is a bit tedious step but at the end of this exercise, you will be receiving the notifications in your reader only and would not be missing out on any of your favorite posts.
