Gripe of the Day // Noreply-comment at blogger.com


I love blog comments. I love responding to blog comments. Most importantly, I love responding to blog comments by hitting reply in my email because it's so easy. If you don't have an email address linked to your blog, it's very unlikely you'll get a response from me. Here are some easy steps to rectify the problem. It really opens the lines of communication. It's super fun, and who doesn't love fun?

1. Go to your Dashboard.

2. Click on Edit Profile.

3. Look in the Privacy section.

4. Make sure the Show My Email Address box is checked.

5. In the Identity section, enter the email address you'd like linked to your blog.

6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.

7. You can always create an email account for your blog or use one you already have.

8. It's really that simple.



Thanks, Kelsey!

I have wrote about this several times, and it doesn't make a difference. Isn't it frustrating?!

I don't know how many times I've shot off a reply to a comment and have it bounce back to me. Pisses me off. :/

YES!!! I hope this is read. And applied!!

I agree, I love responding to my comments via email and the no-reply-blogger-blahblah is annoying. It's so easy to just set up an email account for your blog, why don't people do it?!?!

Amen!

Yep! I learned that a couple months ago. I wish everyone had that! It's so much easier than going to their blog and commenting in their post the reply!! I left you something on my blog!!

Couldn't agree more! I'm not always the best about replying, but when I get around to it, it's always by email.

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

Swear to GAH, it makes me sad when I can't just hit reply.
