Remember when I gave away this sweet book a couple of weeks ago to a lucky commenter??
It’s still sitting on my bookshelf! Why? Because the lucky winner was an unlucky no-reply blogger. I couldn’t get in touch with her, so alas, I must move on to the next in line! So sad.
JODI! Comment #39 – You’re an extra lucky winner! You ARE a reply blogger, and were smart to include your email address just in case, so I’ll be contacting you shortly!
The question remains, ARE YOU A NO-REPLY BLOGGER? Better make sure!
Most bloggers love to reply to their comments, so if you’ve never received a reply to a comment you’ve left on a blog, you’re probably a NRB! This means your Blogger settings are set to hide your email address. Seems like a safe idea at first, but in reality it means you can’t interact with any of the lovely blogs you follow, and worst of all, you can’t win anything!!! Tragic!
When you leave a comment on a blog, the blogger receives an email with your comment, and will usually hit “reply” to send you a sweet note back (hopefully one saying you won something rad!), BUT, if you’re a NRB, the reply email address displays as “firstname.lastname@example.org” – ah! SO frustrating for bloggers!
HERE’S HOW TO FIX IT:
- Log into your Blogger account, and click on the drop down tab next to your email address on the top right corner.
- Click “Blogger Profile”
- The second line down should say “Show My Email Address”- if this box is not checked, you’re a NRB!
- Check it! If the email address shown (the one you used to open your Blogger account) is no longer working, you can type in an updated email address. OR, if you feel creepy about all of Bloggingdom seeing your real, personal email address, go create a new address just for blog land and enter it here, making sure the “show email address” box is checked.
If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will see if I can help. OH NO, WAIT! If you’re a no-reply blogger, I won’t be able to reply! Alas, the cyclone of frustration begins! Luckily there are LOTS of other blog posts floating around with great instructions on fixing NRB symdrome as well, so Google if you can’t figure it out!
Whew, so glad we got that out of the way! Congrats to Jodi, and Happy Monday everyone!
