If you have no idea what a noreply-blogger is, then this post is for you! If you do, then there is a chance that this is for you, just take a few moments to check, won't you?!
If you comment a lot on others' blogs but never get an answer, then there is a VERY good chance this applies to you.
What is a no-reply blogger?
A no-reply blogger is someone who comments on a blog post and who the blog owner cannot then reply to via email because their email address is not visible.
I like to reply to every single comment I get (or well I try to), just so you know that I heard you and that I appreciate the 30 seconds you took to leave me a comment. But when I encounter a no-reply blogger, that makes me sad. It looks like so:
Most of the time I will hunt down the person and let them know. That means clicking through their profile and seeing if they have a blog of their own, finding their contact information there or leaving a comment to a post. When they don't have a blog there is nothing I can do :(
Until now, I always referred them to someone else's post. But after 3 of such bloggers in a row today, I decided it might be time to make my own post to refer to.
How do I know if I am a no-reply blogger?
Well, it's easier to see if you are NOT a no-reply blogger. Let me show you.
If you go to your profile from your dashboard (I'm aware some of you might still have the old dashboard, I think it should be very similar...)
The little icon on the top-right of the dashboard is where you need to go.
Click it so you see the Blogger profile link...
and then click that, too.
The clickable email link under the Contact Me section confirms that you are NOT a no-reply blogger. If you DO NOT see this, then you ARE a no-reply blogger.
Now, apparently there is a new way of having a Google+ profile instead of a blogger profile. If this is the case for you and what I am showing you here is NOT what YOU are seeing, then check out this post, hopefully that will help you out ;) Alright, moving on.
How do I change my settings for other's to be able to contact me?
From your blogger profile, you click Edit profile...
and you simply need to check the show my email address.
Once that is done, scroll down so you can save your new setting!
And that's all there is to it! If you still want to confirm, then simply reply to this post, including your email address, and I will confirm it for you :)
I won't be the only one pleased to see I can now contact you :)
I'll keep this "advertisement" at the bottom of my blog if ever you need it.
Thanks for reading!
I party at these parties. If you would like to invite me to your linky party, please do so on my linkies page, thank you!
