Hello, hello! I know I don't usually discuss the boring logistics of blogging but today I wanted to share a little tip. One of my favorite aspects of having this space is the opportunity it gives me to connect with all of you. I love reading your comments, answering your questions and getting to know you all a little better. One of the ways I do this is by replying to your comments through email.
When a comment is made on any of my posts it is sent to my inbox. In order for me to be able to reply to your comment, there has to be an email address visible in your blogger profile. Otherwise, when I go to respond instead of showing your email in the "To" box it says "no-reply blogger." I realize I can always respond to comments and questions in the comment thread on posts and I do that. I simply think it's easier for the you, the reader, to have your questions answered via email. That way you don't have to keep checking the comment thread.
To change your settings to allow reply comments, open up your blogger profile. It should look something like the above image.
Like I mentioned above, connecting with you is the best part of blogging. I don't always have the time to reply to every comment via email but I do appreciate the time you take to say hello and I read every single one. I also realize this post is geared towards Blogger users and some of you use other platforms. If you have tips for a similar process for Typepad or Wordpress, please share them!
