Blogger Help

First off, is anyone willing to be my deputy and answer questions about Blogger? Hopefully someone who's experienced with it...

And the reason I'm asking is.... I'm trying to invite Sandra to the group blog but she's not getting the invitation in her email. I've resent it several times. It's not appearing in her spam folder.

I have no further ideas on what she can try. Anyone have any ideas???

does she have a google account?
I think that might be the key

sandra said...

Yes, I have a google account and it's the same email addy. I can get normal emails, just not the group invite.

Me again..the pain..I'm not listed as a participant either? or should I be?

Myra said...

Not in the spam folder, did you check the Junk folder? That is where some gals that I had invited onto a group blog found their invites...

Deborah, you wouldn't be listed as a participant until after you received the email invitation and 'accepted' it with a click to enter the blog. At least that's what I recall about how it all works.As far as the email issue..you could make another email addy and see if that account might work. If not, some kind of blocking is at work. Do you use Firefox or IE? Sometimes security settings are set so high other things come into play with group mailings.

sandra said...

I use Firefox. I accept third party cookies (so I can comment on blogs) and have no idea about security settings.

Sandra, I can send you an invite to my blog as a test to see if it's your email or the UnRuly blog. that might help narrow down where the problem is.

Now you've got me thinking. I can't see my name in the participants list, and I'm wondering if I should have received an invite as well. I've checked my junk folder, nothing there.

I have had this problem a few times on the Block Lotto group blog. Usually, the person I am trying to add has a Yahoo address ... and I wonder if it's some sort of competitve shenanigans between Google and Yahoo.

If I keep re-inviting, it has always eventually worked.

It always seems to work for someone who already has a blog on blogspot--if Sandra doesn't already have a blog, maybe she could create one and then delete it after you've added her. (It's a bit of work for a work-around the problem, but I'm confident, it will work).

Sandra has a Blogger blog already. Wow, wonder how many times you have to invite a yahoo address? We're going to try an alternate email (her husband's) and see if that works. If not, it might just be time for a gmail acct...

thanks everyone for the words of advice. now I know more too.

Thank you for all your suggestions. I feel like the kid with nose pressed against the window looking in at the party going on inside LOL.
