Thanks to the note Leanne Cole added to the bottom of today’s post, you can simply disable the “notify me of follow-up comments via email” option on your WordPress site.

  • From your WordPress dashboard, select Settings and then Discussion from the left-hand side of the page.
  • Just before the Avatars section, untick the box after Follow Comments that says “Show a ‘follow comments’‘ option in the comment form”

  • Be sure to click save at the bottom of the page.

Remember, if you are leaving comments for a blogger who has not yet made this update to their site, be sure to untick the  “notify me of follow-up comments via email” option when you leave your comment.  If you forget to do this, read this related post on how to unsubscribe from all comment chatter after the fact.

  11. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
    download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Many thanks

  12. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding
    one? Thanks a lot!

    • Gosh! I’m sorry, but I’m not sure. I’m not a very sophisticated Word Press user. Have you tried the online community? I’ve been able to get some of my questions answered there. Hope that helps!


I love hearing from you!
