How can I post content without having notifications go out to subscribers?

    I want to post a bunch of old content to my page, but for each post I put up I don’t want my subscribers to get a new email. (I’m posting dozens of old content posts that most followers would have already read.)
    Is there a way to keep the emails from going out on certain posts?

    The blog I need help with is ratherbeeating.net.

    If you are referring to publishing posts then every post you publish will go out on your RSS Feed and you cannot reduce the entries in the RSS Feed to zero – sorry.

    P.S. Some folks have tried setting their blog visibility to private temporarily and publishing and then changing it to public. I have not tried that. To change blog visibility go to > Settings > Reading. See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Great suggestion about making it “private” Timethief. Thanks and I’ll give that a try!

    I hope it works for you. Please let me know what the outcome is by posting into this thread, okay?

    I have done that in the past, and from what I remember, the announcement goes out to subscribers as soon as the private post is made public. (I used to publish privately while I was still working on the draft of a post just to avoid hitting the “publish” button by accident before the post was ready. Then when the post was done, I would change it to “public”.)

    But if you are updating an old post (adding content to an already-published post) an announcement does not go out to subscribers. I subscribed to my own blog so I could see for sure what kind of notifications my subscribers get…
