Do You Know...?

I used to know a wee girl who started nearly every sentence with "Do you know...". It was often some nugget of information that Teach had told her and so mad for knowledge was she that she had to pass it all on to her Mammy (and anybody else who would listen) in case we hadn't heard. This wee girl had dyslexia and could hardly read for ages. As for her spelling - wos atroshus. But she worked really, really hard and got first a HND then a rather good degree and she's now a young executive in deepest, flattest Norfolk.

So in the spirit of Kate's questing, knowledge-hungry mind I'm asking - Do you know how I can fix up alerts for new comments on this blog?

I dunno if it can be done on blogger. Which is helpful, I know.

You are one heck of a writer! I love reading your blog ...

Well Ed it's not unhelpful because I suspected as much myself. Do you know I'm starting to think that Blogger is a steaming pile of dung? And thanks Becca for that nice compliment.

Blogger Dashboard> Nelly's Garden> Settings> Comments

Down at the bottom there's a box called Comment Notification Address, enter your email address and you'll receive a notification email when you get a comment.

Is this what you're after?

Nelly said...

Thanks AP - I'll certainly give that a try. Or at least add it to my long list of things I'm trying to understand about my computer.

Hi mother dearest. Do you know me and Mark have a weeks holiday book on the week of May Day bank holiday. Would you fancy a visit from us - where maybe we could throw a vist in with D & N, as I have never been to their dwillings.

Love Katy

You are always welcome in my dwillings daughter dear.

Oh! Oh! What I miss? A fight? Indecent spam? (Considering this is Nelle Du Jour, how could it out-do that? :P)

Nelly said...

No Marc - it was just me posting the same comment twice. But look out for my next post as 'Marc' will have a starring role. Just let me get the mince & sprouts sorted out for Bert first.

Oh! Oh! Oh! (reprise)

Can't wait!
