Why am I getting comments in my blog reader?

Comments from a couple of the non-WP blogs I follow have begun filling my Reader. I don’t know why. It wasn’t happening before now.

Does anyone know what I can do to make this stop, other than removing the blogs from my list?

Here’s an example: http://www.djiboutijones.com/. A great blog, but somehow I ended up following the comments on a recent post.

I just unclicked where it says “Following” but I don’t know if it has cleared only the comments or the whole blog.

  1. Not sure. I haven’t had that issue; at least not yet. Although I’m pretty sure that if you click Unfollow, it unfollows you from the entire blog.

    Is it only in your reader, or in your email? Because unsubscribe links come in every email.

    PS You’re not following me and it makes me sad.

    I got a few on my reader from blogs I am not following also and I am not sure either. I do not get them in my email but just in my reader.

  4. Some .com blogs are wordpress blogs. For $18 a year I can have crackingmyegg.com rather that crackingmyegg.wordpress.com. If I check the ‘send follow up comments’ box under a blog I get all following comments sent to me. I rarely check it anymore.

  5. I’m not sure why it’s showing up in your reader.. *thinking*.. It seems sometimes you can follow a site – WP or other – and you can select to see all comments and everything or not. When this option comes up I’m not sure but I have noticed it sometimes. Only sometimes. Maybe if you unfollow and refollow it will clear that choice? (I’m completely guessing). peace always

    i don’t even know how to follow comments. I only know how to follow blogs. I think I get reply comments in my reader but if I don’t I’m sure I’m missing conversations.

        oh, yeah, you mean the reader feed where all the new blogs pop up. Comments are showing up there? That’s weird. I didn’t know they could do that.

  7. I haven’t had that issue. So I have no idea what it is. But if you unfollow the blog, that posts from that would not appear on your reader. If that is what you are asking??
