If you've enabled the email on your blog profile, it associates your email address with your comment in my inbox. Do you know how incredibly convenient that is? All I have to do is click on your name, and a little email message comes up addressed and stamped and everything.
Sometimes? I would love to send you back a private reply. (Usually it's some flippant excuse for a joke, but that's not really the important part of this post.) But if your email doesn't pop up...well, I mean, If I REALLY think my joke is funny, I will probably see if I can hunt down your email address anyway, but my jokes are rarely worth the time it would take to do that. So if I click "reply" and it comes up "noreply", well, usually, I just say - meh - and forget about it.
I think a lot of bloggers are the same way.
So if you're not getting ANY replies to your comments, you might want to consider opening up a separate new email account ( lots of people use gmail!) especially for your blogger account. Then give people access by enabling the email feature.
(sorry- I only know how to do this in blogger)
- Edit Profile
- then check the box that says "show my email"
- then a few lines down from that, make sure the email address shown is the one you want everyone to have.
Really you'll have more fun with this option on. And if it doesn't work, you can always shut it down.
I just read this and it sounds like an advertisement for something. I can assure you, no one is getting paid for this post. Though if you can think of a way, I'd be open to it. If I got a dime for everyone who opened a gmail account as a result of this, I'd probably have more from that than I have in my 401K right now!
