And I emailed replies to every one of them. What's that? You didn't get yours? Hmm.
Did you know that when you comment, blogger sends your comment to me in an email? It's ace*!
It's ace because I can rest assured I won't miss any comments (particularly on older posts which I don't check anymore), and I get to enjoy them in the comfort of my own inbox.
AND I can just hit reply and say something back to you, which is even acer**!
Unless you haven't set your blogger profile up to allow replies to your comments. In these cases your emailed comment says "no reply-comment", and tiny part of me dies. *sniff*
But there is an easy solution to this - just change your profile to allowed the person on who's blog you've commented to reply to you by email.
How do you do this? Easy-peasy. Just:
1. Go to your blogger dashboard
2. Click on 'Edit Profile'
3. There's an orange header that says 'Privacy'
In this section check the 'show my email address' box
4. Make sure there actually is an email address in the 'Identity' section a bit further down
5. Scroll down even further and make sure you click 'save changes' otherwise they won't be!
I have an email address with the word 'bonjour' in it which I set up for use with my blog.
I also set my 'display name', in the 'Identity' section, to show Kirsty@Bonjour. This hopefully helps people relate my comments (and emails) to me/this blog.
Setting up another email address is also good for those who feel a bit squeamish about using their personal email out in the www. There are a lot of fruitloops out there, I hear.
So please, update your profile. If you posted in the last few days and haven't received an email from me, this means you!
Many thanks to Karen at Sew Many Ways, who took time out to explain this to me when I first started this blog.
A picture I took in Bonifacio, Corsica, earlier this year that has absolutely nothing to do with this post.
