Why aren't the notification emails going out?

    My followers don’t seem to be getting any notification emails when a new post is published. I’ve been told by three followers that they are either not getting emails, or getting them several days after the post is published. Traffic on my blog was going very well, but the last couple of posts have hardly been looked at. I did schedule these posts for publication at a later time instead of publishing immediately. Could that have some effect?

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


    Is this all of your followers, or just a handful?
    If they are WordPress users, they need to check if they have email notifications enabled. They can do this via the Reader on the WordPress homepage. Next to Blogs I follow is a link to Edit list. From there they can see “Get new posts by email”. The options are Never, Instantly, Daily, and Weekly.

    If this is not the problem, post again and someone will look into this for you.



    Well said.

    Troubleshooting: Ask your readers to
    check their spam/junk email box. If there is an option to unblock specific email addresses, try allowing *@wordpress.com (all emails from the domain) and/or (email redacted) addresses.

    make sure to uncheck the box next to “Block all email updates from WordPress.com blogs you follow” on your Manage Delivery Settings page. https://subscribe.wordpress.com/?option=settings


    I have a similar issue to the above but as far as I can tell none of the emails have gone out and my last post is not showing as published on my site stats even though it shows in my blog – http://roadvoyager2.wordpress.com I last published last Tuesday. The only difference I made was changing the background picture – could this be my issue I wonder?


    I don’t know if it’s everybody, but I know three people who were getting all the notifications but recently haven’t been getting them.


    I was hoping someone would be able to further enlighten me as to how to resolve this issue before I published my blog this week. Any thoughts would be appreciated. My last blog is still not showing as published on my site stats and all those followers I have contacted did not receive notification as usual.
