*I’m blatantly stealing this (with complete permission) from Sarah over at G.I. Joe’s Wife. I’ve made a few edits, but instead completely rewriting a great post, I’m copied and pasted this for you!
Have you ever left a comment on a blog and wondered why you never got an answer or reply? I wondered the same thing when I started blogging. People were getting emails and responses and having conversations, and I wasn’t getting any! Sad face. It turns out I didn’t have my reply-to email set correctly. When your reply-to email isn’t set and I try writing you back, this is what I see (all of my comments go directly to my email):
GI Jane email@example.com
This gives me a major sad face. *salutes Major Sad Face* (If you watch How I Met Your Mother, this will make sense and you’ll probably be laughing right now.) So you may be asking…
How do I fix this?
Step 1: Log into Blogger. On your dashboard, this is what you should see:
See the big pink arrow pointing to “Edit Profile?”
That’s where you need to click!
Step 2: On the Edit Profile page, scroll down until you see this:
If you haven’t set your email address, this box will probably be blank.
All you have to do is type your address in there!
Step 3: Save! Scroll down to the very bottom of the page.
Click that little button and you’re done!
See, now wasn’t that easy?! The next time you leave me (or anyone else) a comment, I can reply via email instead of tracking you down and leaving a random comment on your blog or just ignoring your comment altogether.
Easy peasy, right?
Fair warning: I don’t have time to email everyone who comments on my posts, but I do read every single one and I occassionly like to shoot a quick email in response to something you say. I hope this helps 🙂
