Total WordPress Novice. Can Someone Help Me?

So, I don’t know what I have done or what box I have checked or unchecked but for some reason every time I log into this site it no longer has any notifications of likes or comments coming up on the bell icon at the top, right of the page. However, the stats say there are likes and comments. I have Googled and Googled and I cannot find out why I am not getting any notifications when I log in anymore. The only way I can retrieve comments is to go to the comments section in the dashboard.

I only have free WordPress so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. If anyone can tell me how I can get my bell icon notifying again I would be ever so grateful. Thank you 🙂

So Much To Do. So Little Time To Write.

So, I have not posted anything in so long and I do have many topics I want to write about but within a matter of one week I found out I was accepted into uni (to do law) and I got a job so now I have 9 uni scholarships to apply for (all the ones for povos and women), I need to apply for AusStudy (government student allowance) and I have work related training modules I need to complete. Busy, busy.

If anyone has any tips on applying for scholarships please let me know.

I will hopefully have time to write something in the next week or so but I thought I should post a little update so people don’t think this site has been abandoned.
