Are you a no-reply blogger?

I absolutely love to receive comments on my blog. I always take the time to read every single one. I appreciate the kind words and I've learned some great new ideas. I love to respond to every single comment, too. And I do, but, only if you are not a no-reply blogger. Most people don't know whether or not they are a no-reply blogger. If this is the case for you, hopefully, my little tutorial will let you know. 

First, what is a no-reply blogger? Well, if you leave me a comment and I read it through my email and then I go to reply to your email, if your email address reads noreply-comment@blogger.com, you are a no-reply blogger and I cannot reply to your email. In this case, all you need to do is follow the 6 easy steps below and you will instantly begin receiving replies back to many of the comments that you leave on everyone's blogs. 




That's it! Most bloggers will agree that it is good blogging etiquette to have an email address associated with your blog. There are so many times that I want to email someone back and I can't. 

If you don't want your main email address flooded with emails from bloggers or if you don't want anyone to know your main email address, then you can create an email account just for blogging. The email in your profile can be different than the one you use to sign into your blog. 

Feel free to to share this information on your blog, too. The more people we reach, the less no-reply bloggers they'll be!

If you would like to use this post as a test to see whether or not you are a no-reply blogger or whether or not you added your email correctly, you can leave a comment and I will reply back to you...as long as you did it correctly. :) Good luck to you!

  1. Hi Lori- I think my email address is available, I had everything set up the way you explained.

    I'd love to know if I'm right, though. LOL. Thanks.

  6. I find it amazing that you respond to each and everyone of your comments. That's incredible!! And I know for a fact that you receive a lot more comments than I do, but I can't find the time to respond to every one of mine. You're amazing!!

  9. Ok, I know I have mine set up, but how do I tell if people who comment on my blog have it?! Can you tell?? So this mean that when I "reply" under their comment, it will automatically be sent to them, correct? I've been wondering this! :)

Now I have a question, how come even though I know I follow your blog (and any other blog that I follow) whenever I got to your blog under the google followers/friends it never says I follow you? But I get all your updates!!!

  37. I am no longer a "no-reply" blogger! And I'm kinda sad that I wasn't always one of these "no-reply" bloggers!

I'd be the happiest person ever!

    Thanks for your super easy tutorial about no-reply bloggers. I think I'm good, so you can email me back. Since I'm a very new blogger, I am interested how you attained such a following so quickly? I'd love any tips you'd like to share!
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I just wanted to let you know that I have responded back to everyone up to this point. If you did not receive a reply from me yet, that means you are still a no-reply blogger. If you are using Google+, it has been suggested to revert back to Blogger, if possible, update your settings, and then go back to Google+. Good luck!
