What I've Learned Wednesday - No-Reply Bloggers

Look, I don't want to call anyone out.  But, some of you, SOME OF YOU THAT LEAVE COMMENTS, are 'no-reply bloggers'. Sigh.

I get a comment on a post and I get all excited.  I can't wait to email you and let you know that I read your comment and loved it!  And then, sadly, I see that the return email address is "".  And then I weep.  And then my husband contemplates having me committed.

Are you a 'no-reply blogger'?  If you are and you know you are, then you don't have to read any further.  Some people don't want to be contacted and that's totally cool.  I still love you.  Do you wonder if you are a 'no-reply blogger'?  There's an easy way to check:

Go to your dashboard in blogger.  In the upper-right corner, click on the arrow by your blog name and click "Blogger Profile".  On the page that pops up, there is a box next to the setting 'Show My Email Address'... this box needs to be checked if you want emails!  Scroll down just a bit to see the field under your username that says 'Email Address'.  Add your address to that box.

Now I can email you back and tell you how much I love you.  FYI, you should check this every once in a while... my settings have changed a couple of times on their own.  I think they do updates every so often and default settings kick in.  No worries, just check it every once in a while.

I look forward to emailing all of you!

  1. Guilty as charged, though I wasn't aware! It explains why I haven't had replies to certain things elsewhere! Thanks for sharing 'how to'!

  2. Great advice. I was a no reply blogger, without knowing it, for months...until someone contacted me said, did you know you were a no reply blogger. I didn't. It's much more fun to being accessible.

  3. I was worried but No sir-ree I am not... a no reply blogger ( I said that with the not the father voice from the Maury Show) haha

  4. Didn't know about that! Thank you so much for that tip. Hopefully I can get some two-way going on!

  5. Thanks for the tip on how to change it. I was a no-reply blogger but didn't know until someone mentioned it a couple of days ago but I didn't know what they were talking about. Now I do, and I've changed the settings.
    Following you now from the Blog Hop!

  6. I'm not a "No-Reply Blogger"! (I changed the setting about a month ago!) Thanks for letting people know how to change their settings!
    Hugs -

  7. I didn't even know! I just thought the best way to reply to comments was to visit the person's blog. I've made the change... now I just hope I don't get a bunch of spam :P

I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
