Technical help…

I am starting to post exclusively now at my new site – http://www.alistairlanewrites.com/ -, and had planned on shutting down this old blog over the coming weeks. Now I’m in two minds… the last two days have been my best ever for follows, and every single one is following this site! (These all came immediately after I’d transferred all my followers over to the new site.)

Were people waiting for me to finally shut up for a minute before they decided to follow me??

So, I’ll have to think about that one. One thing I did want to flag and get some feedback on is about comments. My WordPress reader seems completely thrown by the new website. Not all of your comments appear in my reader… a number get quarantined for no reason (even when you’ve previously commented successfully)… none of my replies appear in my reader… and now, even my comments on your websites seem to be disappearing too.

Blogging is all about interacting, and this isn’t making things easy (for me, certainly).

My questions to you are twofold:

  1. Have you been experiencing similar problems with making comments on the new site, or picking up my replies?
  2. Does anyone have any technical insight to steer me towards resolving this?

Grateful for ANY help that you can offer, even if it’s only feedback to say that you’ve not had any problems! :-)

Thank you!

  1. Do you have Jetpack installed on the other site? I think the problems I had when I self-hosted before were with the Jetpack settings. Let me know if you figure it all out because I’m working on moving my old blogs over to a self-host too.
