Blogger Tip :)

Being on the west coast and usually a late night poster, I LOVE opening my email in the morning, or anytime for that matter, to find you have left me a comment and I equally enjoy sending you a comment right back but sometimes I can’t because your comment email says ‘noreply.’

Have you ever wondered why is it that when someone leaves you a comment that is forwarded to your email that sometimes you see an email address you can reply to and other times you see a “noreply-comment…?”

It’s because of your settings on your blog as a commenter and although you might prefer it this way, but if you don’t or didn’t know about this little feature, it’s so easy to change if you want to.

Here’s what you do:

1. Go to your Customize tab on your blog page.
2. Go to Dashboard then Edit Profile next to your icon picture. Click on it.
3. You’ll see a Privacy section and check the box that says “Show my email.”
4. Scroll down on the same page and you’ll see an Identity section. You can put in any email address you wish in the Identity section. I use my ‘gmail email’ account which I have set to automatically forward to my private email so I don’t have to go back and forth between the two.

Whether I send you back a quick email reply or acknowledge you in my comments section when I get a spare moment, it’s this connection that I truly love about blogging! 🙂

It’s not surprising to find out I used to be called “Chatty Cathy”, is it?
I was sent to the principal’s office in third grade for talking too much.
Some things never change. 🙂

And BTW, I have my namesake on a shelf in my garage and Chatty Brother too!

  1. I am going to repost this on my page too!!

  2. Love your music!! xoxo

  3. You are the best! Now, tell me this, what’s the best way to publish some posts while I am in Peru? I’ve written some things on WindowsLiveWriter and set the publication date for future dates, but nothing happened today on my “test” run. Any tips?

  4. T&C ~ Well, I don’t know anything about the program you mentioned but if you write the posts in your regular blog page, go to the “post options” button to the left of the labels window under your post. Click on “post options”. It is here you can change the post time and date. If you are using “Old Editor” under your ‘Settings’ tab, the post will publish at the time and date you first opened the ‘New Post’ window unless you change it. If you are using the “Updated Editor” your posts will automatically post to the current time you hit the publish button unless you choose the ‘scheduled’ button on the ‘post options’.

    On either “Old Editor” or “Updated Editor”, if you want your post to be published at a future date and time, put in what you would like and then hit “Publish”. It really won’t publish the post but will save it until the designated publish time you have chosen. You can check on this through your “Edit Post” page where it shows the history of all your posts. It will say “scheduled.”

    Gosh, I hope this makes sense and it answers your question! 🙂

  5. Great tip ….but question…I receive emails responding to my comments left but I have no idea how to do that on my blog commentors? Does that make sense?

  6. I still get in trouble for talking too much. I may have to blog about my trip to the pricipal’s office in 6th grade. It’s funny. Love “talking” to you. xo

    PS Hubby just got back from your neck of the woods. Your Ducks beat our Sabres & he was at the game. Then my cousin’s team LA beat us & my cousin scored against us. oh well. I’m looking forward to the Olympic hockey ahead too!

  7. Great tips, thank you!!!

  8. I was going to say the exact same thing as Frau!

  9. Great tip!
