Dear No-Reply Blogger,

2008 September 26

'you didn´t crash did you?'

How can I link my email address to my blogger profile?


For me?

Would you mind? It’s easy I promise.

Will you edit your blogger profile to SHOW your email address?

I really want to reply to YOU. I have no idea who No-Reply is? I’m sure she’s nice and all. But I just replied to 15 comment emails and AFTERWARDS realized half of them were to Ms. Fancy Pants No-Reply. Crap.

How to add your email to your blogger profile. (A tute)

Why? I love to reply directly to YOU when you comment! And it’s goofy to put a response to my blog in your blog comments!

{Don’t worry. I promise I’ll be the first one to comment on your lovely post!}

  • Step One: Open your profile page, click EDIT Profile on left side of profile.
    (If you need help finding your profile page let me know).
  • Step Two: make sure the box marked show my profile and show my email address are checked.
  • Step Three: Under Identity, add the email address you want comment replies to be sent.
  • Optional, change your display name to match your blog somehow?
    Or leave as your fist name? (I use GoodNCrazy so people can relate it back to my blog).

  • Step Four: scroll to bottom and click save!


You did it. Now come back and comment, so I can reply to you in real email form!!

    I remember when I finally figured this out – Eureka! You inspired me to write about the same thing this morning and pointed people here to get the instructions. Hope you don’t mind me shamelessly ripping off your topic, since I gave you a shout out and all. 😉

    I don't have a blog, but when I leave a comment I have to log-in with my name & email – that works too, right?

    I was curious about your comment on LitandLaundry so I decided to pop and visit your blog.I am a NO REPLY blogger. I didn’t used to be but I had a VERY uncomfortable situation with a reader (male) who started to email me everyday- and I thought he was being WAY too personal. I thought by taking it off the blog, he would stop.He finally did for the most part(every now and then he pops back). I made a second email account just for my blog, but I decided to wait a while before I do that again.

    LOL… Ok, the shoe fits. You must be talking about me too!I went ahead and made an e-mail account specifically for my blog, and now it’s up and running thanx to you. =0D

    This bothers me too. Although I do like to comment when someone comments on my blog sometimes I am under time constraints and sending a quick email is so efficient.

    Bravo! I wholeheartedly agree. I always wonder if people respond to my comment but never remember to go back and look.YAY YOU!

    OMG! I love this blogging thing! I think of a post and voila, someone else writes it for me! I am linking you to my blog or however that works, because I swear I just said how that No-reply blogger annoys me to my friend today

    PERFECT post!! My thoughts exactly…and those “anonymous” comments? What is that? Why be anonymous? Speak your mind, people…I’ll still love you.This was great. We need to have blog courtesy day.

    Mine was already set up that way, but since I don’t comment to myself, I didn’t know that’s what does it.Thanks!

    Great tute, again. I posted your tutorial on my blog awhile ago. I wonder how many people actually changed their settings.I think my next post is going to be directed at those that have word verification after each comment. j/k.

    if you are ever looking for MORE to do, you could easily teach a tech class at one of those adult education things they have at community centers, high schools, etc. you are so good at explaining CLEARLY what to do! learned lots already.

I wrote a post and linked to you all over the place. Thanks again!p.s. I found you by way of Kimba’s link round-up. Nice to meet you!

    Oh – this makes me crazy! I am always halfway through my reply before I realize that I’m sending an email to noreply. Plus, I feel silly going to someone’s blog to respond to their comment on my blog. Talk about random. This was a great post. I’m going to be sending people here!!!

  39. October 7, 2008

    hmm…i may be guilty when it comes to not making my email available but then it’s more because of ignorance than intentional. hehe!though i don’t use blogger, will try to figure out how to make my email addy accessible in my website.

    Thanks for letting me know this. I'm going to post about this in my Friday "Things I Learned This Week" post at with a link back here. I never realized before why I could respond by email to some and not others and certainly didn't realize that my blogs were set for no reply. I just thought it had to do with the email line in the comment box. So glad I found this out!
