I did not receive notification of my own post. I just posted a new one http://gohomeandaway.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/winter-is-coming/ and did not get an email notification at my primary email, even thought I am subscribed to follow and have always received new post notifications before. Furthermore, several of my friends did not receive the new post either (though they always do otherwise).
Also, for the last few weeks I have stopped receiving notifications at my work email, with which I also subscribed to follow, as a backup/to make sure everything shows up properly.
I have verified my ‘discussion’ setting, everything is set up properly.
