NoReply@Blogger.com


I love each and every single one of the comments I get, and I would be lying if I didn't say they often make my day that much better.  I get super excited when I see the flashing red light on my Blackberry in hopes it is a notification for my blog.  BUT, more importantly, I like to be able to respond to the comment notification by clicking reply and have it sent automatically to your email address.  Often when I click reply, it says noreply@blogger.com instead of your email address. 

**So, will everyone check their settings since about 50% of the people who comment need to make one quick adjustment to make the process possible!?!  I will beg if I have to :)

Here is how to change it:

1.  Click on the Customize link in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

2.  Click on the Dashboard link in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

3.  Click Edit Profile, which in on the left hand side of the screen next to your profile picture.

4.  This will take you to the Edit User Profile screen.

5.  Look in the Privacy section.

6.  Click on the box that says, "Show my email address."

7.  In the Identity section, enter in an email address.

8.  Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on Save Profile.

This quick change to your settings will be really helpful when someone asks me a question through a comment or when I want to reply in general.  I never go back and reply on the actual post because it would be impossible to keep up/follow up.

That is all for now ..... thank you thank you!!!  I am sure your other blogging friends will appreciate it too.

Ahh! Thank you for doing this! It drives me crazy when I can't respond. Especially when people ask a question! I might be linking to this post this week!

the girl in the red shoes said...

Yes! I love being able to reply to people and get frustrated when I can't!

SEW said...

Thanks!! I had no idea!

Kelly said...

Ditto!! ;-) I love it when other bloggers write posts about it because I always feel like I'm nagging when I repeat it ;-)

Happy Friday!

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Sooo....when I reply to "noreply" it doesn't get to them?!?!

That friggin' stinks...and I've wasted my thoughts on emailing them back...not to mention those emails could have saved my poor wrists from carpal tunnel!

Patriotic Princess said...

Oops, embarrassingly enough I was one of these people. But no worries I am happy to report that I fixed it! Hope you have a FABULOUS Friday! xoxo

The "Dubs" said...

AMEN! :) I totally need to write a blog about this as well. Anywho, I just so happened to stumble across your blog while blog hopping and I love it! Not to mention I am your newest follower! Stop by and visit sometime.

Leigh said...

Im so glad you mentioned this.....I always wondered HOW ppl would respond to my comments and they would shoot to my email. hehe...now I know. I ALWAYS find myself wanting to respond to ppl but I had no clue how to do this. Thanks ma'am!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Leigh said...

Okay question!!! How do you "reply" to others comments? Are you just clicking on their email and responding? I do not see a "reply" button....am I missing it?

Heather said...

Ia m going to borrow this post!!!! I get the no-reply ALL the time!

hotpants™ said...

I've been meaning to post the exact same thing. I'm going to post this today. Thanks for the reminder.

Mateya said...

I hope you don't mind but I am going to use this post too...I will link it to yours, but that bothers me so bad! I want to respond!!!

littledaisymay said...

I'm so glad you posted this! I hate when I want to reply and can't! Have a wonderful weekend :)

Ashton said...

Awesome catch! I love that little light on my blackberry, too- although I don't get near as many as you do I bet! :)
Luckily mine was the right way ;)

Happy Friday, girl!

Pocketfull of Pink @ 5th Belle Ave said...

I intentionally never had mine set up, but I recently created a new e-mail address and a forwarding system so that it is accessible now, but UBER private. Message away! :o)

Together We Save said...

Great idea!! I love comments too.

Football and Fairytales said...

Hope I fixed mine, if it was messed up before! I so Enjoy your blog!!!!!!

TeachingInHeels said...

Thanks for the post!! I didn't know to change that, but would get sad when I couldn't reply to comments either. Love the little red blackberey light...

Jax said...

Love it! You're the one who convinced me to do this and I just love it! I adore being able to respond to my friends on blogger! :) I cant do it a lot b/c I dont see personal email at work.. but still.. It's great to check on my personal palm when I need a breather...and a smile.

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Awe, I love your blog~ Not sure if my blog is set to do that but Mr. Guru will have to check my blog to see if it is set correct!

Shelby Bukhenik said...

Oh I completely agree! My blackberry keeps me up to date on my blog comments and I hate when I can't show my appreciation back!

Kendra said...

Trish said...

Thanks Kelsey, I'm posting this as well, I hate not being able to reply!! :) Happy weekend darling!

~*Katie*~ said...

If you don't mind...I'm going to steal part of this!!! I do not like not being able to answer someone...I also dislike going back to that post and answering it, because a lot of the time I'm sure the person that wrote that isn't going back to see if I wrote anything on it...I have sent the non-reply a couple of emails :)

Brown Girl said...

I would do this but my email is my real name. Sorry!

Kristin said...

I love your blog. I just started following it. You and your hubs look so cute togeather. Fill free to drop by. http://familyofthreejustexpanded.blogspot.com/

Lil' Woman said...

I always get so disappointed when I try to reply and I see that dreaded noreply.....EVERYONE MAKE THE SWITCH!!

Brittany said...

This drives me INSANE!! Thanks for posting this! I did about a month ago and some people still haven't listened lol..

Listen to Kelsey people :-)

LG said...

I wish I could "Reblog" this like retweeting on twitter ! Great post!

Kelli Kegley said...

This is really going to show how blogger stupid I am, but how do you even respond? I don't see anything that gives me the option. The only thing I see is a trashcan to delete...

Tracy-Girl said...

I'll do it... I will also respond to others comments... I love them too - it makes my day!

Jen said...

I get sad too because often some of my best comments, or comments from new followers who I really want to reach out to, come from people with noreply. I second this blog post!

The Macons said...

Kendra said...

Annie said...

Thanks so much for this post! I didnt know that setting even existed haha

Sam said...

Thank you for posting this, I was just getting frustrated over it myself! I love being able to respond, and it stinks when I can't, because then I feel like people think I'm ignoring their comments.

I'll definitely be linking to this post, if that's okay!

Karena said...

Great tips and this is available on my site fr private replies or questions. However I love, love it when we reciprocate and visit each others sites and leave comments; believe me I know how limited all of our time is! I do think that is how we build our blog friends,connections, and our businesses, when applicable.

OceanDreams said...

I might have to post this too, it is hard to go back to someone's blog to reply when they are a non reply blogger! I am glad I fixed this, it is so much fun to interact with my blog ladies! :)

Bumpkin on a Swing said...

I have sent this link to 100 of my followers, thank you for putting it out there. I see alot of my favorites here in your comments section, love these girls, especially My Pink and Preppy Lilly Lover, Trish. A Cajun belle just like The Bumpkin and hands down the best of the sweet bloggers. Nice to meet you, you will find I'm not so much a Bumpkin other than geographically, come visit me at the swing. You have a new follower.
Mwah, thanks for the post, and I will link it again and again.
