Are you a No-Reply blogger?

Do you leave comments on my blog, never to hear back from me? You might think I'm a rude blogger who never replies to comments?

You might be wondering why no one ever replies to your comments.

I've been getting lots and lots of comments in my in-box lately where the from address is coming up as 
noreply-comment@blogger.com
Some of these comments are questions, and I can't answer them. I'm not being rude, I just don't have your email address, because you are a "no-reply blogger"

Don't be embarrassed, because today I found I that
I AM A NO-REPLY BLOGGER TOO!!
OMG! How embarrassing!


Well, I was - before I fixed it...

How do you find out if you're a no-reply blogger? Comment on your own blog. Then see if you can reply to your comment. If you don't have a blog, or don't get your comments emailed to you (which you totally should), then leave a comment with your email address and I will let you know. 
Ummm... maybe for the first fifty commenters or so, haha.

You can fix it here: A Public Service Announcement

"But what about if I have a Google+ profile?" I hear you say. Well, that's what happened to me, sometime after I linked my Google+ profile to my blogger account (perhaps immediately, I'm not sure) I became a no-reply blogger. There's a solution here that worked for me: Google+ Fix After you fix it, go back and change yourself back to a Google+ profile and it should be fixed. 
 
Please let me know if I've helped you. I'll be back tomorrow with more from the Kids clothes week challenge. Today's was really boring anyway, with lots of cutting out, so you didn't miss much.

  2. That's interesting and weird and scary- how settings and stuff can change and we aren't keeping up with whats going on. Thanks for the tips Carmel, better check my settings- my google reader has gone really weird lately and I feel rather left behind!
