I have been blogging for only a few months, but I thought that self-pingbacks used to be automatic. I would get an email merely notifying me of my own pingback (as a comment). Recently, though, the emails changed -- they now ask me to APPROVE those pingbacks. I like having self pingbacks, but what happens if I don't go in and manually approve each one? It just seems like an extra step to have to moderate my own "comments," when I have set my account so I don't have to approve subsequent comments from regular readers.
The blog I need help with is janicejohnson.wordpress.com.
