Are You A No-Reply Blogger.?

There are a few things that I love about blogging, the obvious being that I love to share my favorite things with you. But, what I love the most about blogging is the interaction I get with my readers/followers. I love being able to meet new people and say thank you to those who comment on my posts! 

What makes me sad though, is when I get an email notification of a comment with, because I want to be able to reach out and say thank you for your sweet note! So, if you are currently using the Blogger Platform and you don’t have a visible email on your profile, then this tutorial is for you to change that.

Also, for anyone who is a blogger with an email that is visible, there is a TIP at the bottom to get connect with those who aren’t on the Blogger Platform. 

First, you need to start in your blogger dashboard. Then, follow the steps below to make sure you are not a no-reply blogger. Make sure to hit save on Step 4!

If your blogger account is connected to a google+ account, you first need to disconnect in order to be able to change this. You can re-connect them again afterwards, I promise. Start in your blogger dashboard. Click on the setting icon wheel. It is next to the language option at the top of your screen. Connect/Disconnect from Google+ and follow the prompts.

Most of us, who are on the blogger platform, aren’t being fair to some of the no-reply bloggers. I read in this tutorial that blogging platforms such as Wordpess & Typepad have no way of changing their setting, because their platforms are set up differently than the Blogger. But, hold on there is a way to be in contact with commenter’s on a different blogging platform. It just takes a step or two more.

All you have to do is click on the name of the commenter in your email and/or dashboard. The name is a hyperlink that will send you directly to their profile, blog, or google+ profile. From there you can get into contact with whomever is leaving comments on your blog!

But, if you are a blogger who doesn’t have a single email address set up that I can reach you at. Please do me a favor and leave your email at the bottom of your comment, that way I can get in contact with you and thank you for your sweet note!

  1. I get annoyed sometimes when I see that I can't reply back to a commenter, especially when they have made an amazing comment or asked a question.
