I created several blogs. Two are sites I maintain but others are sites I created for other people and I retain administration access to them just in case they need me to go and fix some page, but I don't want to receive notifications every time they have a new comment waiting for moderation.

Is there a way in WordPress that while being an administrator of a blog, to not receive the email notifications for some blogs and still get them for some other blogs?

This appears to be a wordpress.com-specific question, that would be better-directed to wordpress.com support. – Chip Bennett Mar 10 '12 at 14:20

This is a one time work for every blog you maintain. Go to Dashboard >Settings >Discussion and see following: E-mail me whenever:

  • Anyone posts a comment
  • A comment is held for moderation
  • Someone likes one of my posts
  • Someone follows my blog
Unmark the option at which you don't want to recieve any email notifications. All done!
