Growing

Have you all noticed how many ladies we have on here now? Holy cow. I love it! But is anyone else having trouble with keeping up? Like if you post something and then want to read comments but can't remember how many comments there were so you waste a lot of time going to comments when you don't need to because there are no new ones? I have a solution... and want to know who wants to join.

On my own blog I have it set up so that any time someone comments on my blog the comment is automatically emailed to me. That way if someone comments on an old post I will know they commented (since I don't check old posts for new comments on my blog). If you don't have this set up on your own blogs you should check it out. Very handy. Under "Settings" then "Comments" at the bottom is the "Comment Notification Email" and you put the address in there where you want comments on your blog emailed to you.

Anyway... on to my point. You can only have one email address for the comment notification so I created a WKTGS google group email address that anyone on here can join it and then whenever a comment is put on the WKTGS blog it will send that comment to the emails that are in that google group. Again... very handy. Who wants in? If you do either give your email address in the comments or send it to me here and I'll invite you to the group.

I get how it works on blogger because I had that on my own site, but with Google....I'm confused!!

Google owns blogger (I think) and the only way to have multiple addresses receive the comments is to create a group alias address (which is wktgs@googlegroups.com) and then we put that in the comment notification email spot and anyone in this google group will automatically get the comments. Also, if you ever wanted to email everyone in the group at once you just send it to wktgs@googlegroups.com OK I'm sorry I'm confusing everyone. It really is a LOT easier than I made it sound. :)

ok totally makes sense now. so that means we'll all receive all the comments? i like the idea of having one group email to send to. very convenient!

Sign me up with marileeanne@comcast.net. Can we delete these comments with our email address after you get them registered. :-) I know I'm a internet worry wart but don't really want my email address floating around... I know I'm a nerd! Anyway, let me know when my address is entered so I can delete this comment. HA HA HA!!

Jocelyn said...

Yes, Angie... once it's all set up we'll all start receiving the comments.

OK ladies... I think it's set up. Hopefully anyone in the group gets this comment in their email. If you want in the group just let me know because you can add anytime.
