Made a decision about WordPress

Thank you all for your comments about the emails I get from WordPress writers.  Apart from a couple, everyone said that they stopped doing the emails completely.

I decided 2 hours ago to stop emails for new followers, I can easily pick them up, and also comments, I was hoping it would cut them down.  Unfortunately it wasn’t enough.  I have had 142 emails since then.  That is not including the ‘social’ ones that come in that heading.  They are the ones where writer’s have written a blog post.  I don’t have a problem with that one, because at the end of the day, I run my eyes down them, and if I see a name that I haven’t checked in awhile, I will read it, but all the others get deleted.

I am thinking that I might have to stop emails for a week.  Sorry everyone.  This way I will be able to clear the 20,000 I already have, and then decide whether to go back to them.  I really don’t want to do this, and it may take longer, but at this stage I really don’t think I have a choice.

  1. I still can’t get mine for everyone’s post notifications. I gave up and just go on Reader and (try to) catch up there when I can. I tried all sorts of things and signed up repeatedly and they would work for a day then nothing. I can imagine they would really overwhelm a person if they were working properly though and you got busy and couldn’t keep up!
