I want to start this post asking you a question
ARE YOU A NO REPLY BLOGGER - Do you know if you are. I always assumed I was leaving comments on peoples blogs and they could get back to me. I mean I had supplied all my information, my emails etc.
But you know those times when you enter a comment and you are using your Blogger ID or Wordpress ID and don't have to enter any details about yourself.
Well I assumed it was all connected and people could reply but I recently (in the last month or so, hey it takes me a while to wake up ok!!) and I was told that I was posting comments and some people could not say anything back to me and if they didnt know who I was that was the end of the line because 'No reply blogger' doesn't show anything other than your first name as a clue.
Lucky for me it was pointed out to me by a wonderful friend, and I must admit I scoffed to myself thinking I get comments from people but I did as suggested and went to one of my posts and sent myself an email.
Sure enough when it arrived and I clicked reply then went up to my name in email address and clicked on the little arrow that allows you to open the email address it came up 'no reply blogger' so all I had was Aileen.
Now this is happening to me quite regularly where wonderful people are commenting on my cards, I may not know them because I don't recognise their name and their blog name isn't showing so I cant go check out their blog. I also cant reply directly to their comment because it is 'no reply blogger'.
I HATE THIS as I feel it looks like I am happy to have you comment but couldn't be bothered reciprocating or even looking at your blog. This is not so, so I want you to go check your self. Send yourself an email and see If it comes up 'no reply blogger'.
There is an easy fix and of course I deleted the email I received with it summed up perfectly as I love keeping my mail tidy. so its gone and the trash has been emptied as well so no retrieving it.
I can say whether you are 'Blogger' or Wordpress this can be happening and is an easy fix. If you are techno challenged then ask your husband, child or grandchild to fix it for you. You can do the first step:
- Send yourself a comment from one of your blog posts.
- Go to your mail and open the email.
- Now hit reply.
- Go to the top of the email and look at where it saysTo:
- This will be your name and that little drop down arrow is there, click on it
- you will either see your email - in that instance no need to go any further
- or it will say 'No reply blogger' and there are quite a few of you darlings out there and you will need to
- Blogger -here is a link to a easy video tutorial for you 'no reply blogger' or
- you can go to this link for step by step with pictures - they cover both blogger and wordpress.
Okay thats it, no card with this post but thought I would share a photo from Aarons Engagement party holding onto my youngest grandson. It's so funny to see them dressing their children how we were dressed ourselves as children, fashion doing the cycle.
Now its time to go check your email responses.
