I remember reading that when I first started blogging – Are you a no-reply blogger? Two thoughts immediately popped into my head. First thought was – Um NO, absolutely not. I know what I’m doin’ here! Second thought? I have no idea what a no-reply blogger is. With a quick investigation I discovered that yes, I was a no-reply blogger. Oops. I’d been commenting on quite a few posts and never heard a single reply – turns out this was why.
So what is a no-reply blogger? Well for one- this only pertains to Blogger bloggers. It basically means that your information (email) is not connected to your account so if you leave a comment, I may get it in my inbox but I can’t just hit Reply and respond to you. I have mentioned in the Comments portion of this blog that if you are a no-reply blogger, I will reply to you on the actual post – but for you to see my reply, you’d have to go back to my post. Perhaps some of you Blogger commenters prefer it this way, but I’ll tell you- not only is it easier for me to respond to you via email but it’s a lot easier to carry on a conversation too.
So – how do you find out if you’re a no-reply blogger, and if you are and want it changed, how do you change it? Well let me show you!
1. Go to your Dashboard and click on your Blogger Profile (very top right)
2. Click Edit Profile (top right)
3. Place a checkmark next to “Show my email address”
4. Finally, scroll to the bottom and click “Save Profile.”
