I know a lot of you have been struggling with something I've been struggling with, too. Google took away the little track back [X] check box. Whenever I commented (with only a few exceptions), I always checked the little box to email me other people's comments.
I wanted to know what everyone was saying. I liked the social aspect. Heck, that little checkbox played a part in my wife and I getting together. And for the last month, I've kind of missed it. Like a lot.
So, while this is a work in process, SCOPE-TECH is bringing back the email following link! Just click the "Subscribe by email" link when you comment.
And here's how you can, too.
1 – You HAVE to flip over to the new Blogger interface, sorry. It sucks, I know it.
2 – On your new blogger dashboard, click the little dropdown arrow I've highlighted and then click "Settings" (Note, it's the last one in the list, I Photoshopped the picture to make it fit the screen better.)
3 – On the lower right, in "Settings", click "Posts and comments"
4 – In the drop down button for "Comment Location" choose "Embedded".
5 – Click the big orange "Save Settings" button and you are good.
Like I said, Cora and I tried it out a little tonight. One of the good things about being married to a blogger, they can help you test issues like this, and are eager to, too, since they're experiencing your pain, too. There may be a hiccup or two with this approach. I know that Joshua over @ Vive Le Nerd tried it for one whole day before reverting back, so there could be dragons here. But if you would, tell me if you click the link today, and let me know if you are getting the comments in a usable format, that would be awesome.
Tech? On this blog? Go figure.
Oh, and bonus points if you get the joke in the title.
