    Hello, i just created a blog a few days ago, and i have checked the box (under discussion settings) to receive emails when someone follows my blog, however, i am not receiving those emails (my email address is correct and I have received emails to moderate comments). My stats section indicates i do have a few followers.
    Blog url: http://bobduedall.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is bobduedall.wordpress.com.

    Have you checked your email spam filter in case that’s where they are?

    Hello – thank you. Yes, I’ve been checking my spam/junk folder, and they haven’t shown up there. I’m wondering if the notifications of followers are only sent for the “wordpress-user” followers, and not the “email followers” that haven’t signed up for wordpress?
