Are you a no-reply blogger? Do you know what that is? When we first started blogging, I had no idea what that was, if I was one, or if that even mattered. Let me tell you, it does matter! One of my favorite things with blogging is connecting with people. Most of the time though, our blog comments come from no-reply blogger...so when I get my email saying someone commented, the email shows up as a no-reply address. :( So, unfortunately, there is no way for me to email back. I sometimes reply back on our blog, but unless you go back to check for a response, there's no way for me to know if you saw my comment.
So, how can it be fixed? Don't worry - it's super easy! Trust me, I am the most computer illiterate person and I was able to figure it out okay :)
First, test it out on your own blog. Make a comment on your own blog and check your email. Does your email say no-reply or have your email address? If it's already your email address, you are good to go! If it is no-reply, keep reading!
I am going to explain this from Google + point of view...if you don't have Google +, skip the first and last step.
1. Sign into your blogger account. Click on the settings icon, and revert your profile to Blogger.
Click on 'Switch to a limited profile', fill in your username, and click 'Continue to Blogger.'
2. Once you are back to Blogger, click on your Blogger Profile. Then click 'Edit Your Profile.'
3. Now, you just need to click the box next to Show My Email Address. Click Save at the bottom.
Super easy, huh? Now if you want Google + back, there is another step:
4. Click on the settings icon again, and it will have an option to go to Google +.
Convert back and you are good to go! We have noticed that it no longer automatically shares on Google +, so we have to manually share. It's not a big deal, but just something to remember!
Also, I have had issues with it changing me back to a no-reply blogger every once in awhile. I noticed it did after I made a bunch of comments after this past week. womp womp :( So check back often and make sure your email address is shown!
Hopefully that helps and isn't too confusing! Looking forward to connecting to more people now! :)
