When I delete outdated postings, the blog emails other postings.

    Many postings on our Audubon Chapter blog are for upcoming field trips and programs. When those events are past, I delete the announcements to eliminate outdated blogs. When I do this, the blog nearly always sends out an email of some random old posting which I did not delete. People are always wondering why they’re getting an email which they got 2, 3 or even 6 months earlier.

    Does anyone know why this happens and how I can stop it, other than cease deleting stale-dated blogs?

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

    We need the URL beginning with http of the blog in question before anyone can give you accurate help.

    I thought that would be included in my original message as it was displayed on my screen when I posted the message. Here it is: http://smbasblog.wordpress.com/

    For many, many technical reasons, deleting outdated posts is a very bad idea. However, deleting a post shouldn’t send out a random email. Staff will need to know about this. Contact them via your dashboard help button and give them all the info you’ve given us, and if you can, copy/paste one of the emails your subscribers got when you deleted a post.
