or not – RandomBlog2011 Challenge Day 2 – Tips
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I like reading the comments on the blogs I visit including the follow-ups after my visit. Many have commented that your email inbox is getting so full that you can’t keep up.
Here are 3 tips which could make life easier for you and won’t fill up your inbox.
Instead of subscribing to comments by email, subscribe to the RSS Comment feed. Once subscribed, you can use your reader to read the comments when you have the time. If and when you are no longer interested in that feed it’s easy to unsubscribe.
The only RSS reader I use is Google Reader and there is an option to search your RSS feeds. To see if they’ve replied to your comment you can search just one feed or all of them for your name. The most recent is always at the top.
I would imagine that most readers have similar options. There are other options available but I’m trying to make this a short post this afternoon.
While this solution may not be the best it might make it a little easier and keep your inbox from overflowing with comments.
You should also take advantage of the filters that are available in most email programs. Create a new folder for email coming from WordPress.com and once the filter is set up and applied they go directly to that folder and it keeps your main inbox clear for your other more important email.
If you always click the “Like” button and leave a comment you can check them at the main WordPress.com Freshly Pressed page as long as you are signed in. It’s the fourth tab of the six listed – Posts I Like.
Now I said I would list the blogs that I’ve visited in my next post so here they are. There may be one or two missing because I left comments and never received a replied and I didn’t make a note of the blog I visited.
