No Reply Issue

I have received some really nice comments on some of my posts that I cannot respond to because the people making them have their Blogger account set to not reveal their email address.  When I try to respond, the address I get is "no reply."  I have started going to people's blogs to see if their email address is there.  Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't, & sometimes these people don't have a blog.

I try to respond to all comments I receive so if you have not received a response to me then please know that I am not ignoring you ... you are just one of the "no reply" people.  Here's how to fix that ... if you want to.

1.  On Blogger you need to choose "Create A Profile."  This is somewhere in your initial blog settings.

2.  Once created, you need to activate it ...

Dashboard
Look to the upper left
Select "Edit Profile"

Under Privacy ...
Select "Show My Profile"
Select "Show My Email Address"

Under Identity ...
ADD - your desired online email address

Click "Save Profile"

People sometimes think that where it says "Show My Email Address" it means that it will show on your blog.  It does not ... it just means that it will show in the "To" section of an email if someone chooses to respond to a comment that you leave on their blog.

I thank Robin at The Cranky Crow for this information   : )

Yes its a shame when you have no way of contacing people. Someone once won a giveaway on a blog I followed and the owner hd no way of contacting that person and despite a post on her blog the lucky winner never had the opportunity to claim their gift x

I've had a few issues with this also. I like to return a comment back, sometimes I will hunt them down, but I really don't have the time for that. Thanks for sharing!
