I get a comment on a post and I get all excited. I can't wait to email you and let you know that I read your comment and loved it! And then, sadly, I see that the return email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org". And then I weep. And then my husband contemplates having me committed.
Are you a 'no-reply blogger'? If you are and you know you are, then you don't have to read any further. Some people don't want to be contacted and that's totally cool. I still love you. Do you wonder if you are a 'no-reply blogger'? There's an easy way to check:
Go to your dashboard in blogger. In the upper-right corner, click on the arrow by your blog name and click "Blogger Profile". On the page that pops up, there is a box next to the setting 'Show My Email Address'... this box needs to be checked if you want emails! Scroll down just a bit to see the field under your username that says 'Email Address'. Add your address to that box.
Now I can email you back and tell you how much I love you. FYI, you should check this every once in a while... my settings have changed a couple of times on their own. I think they do updates every so often and default settings kick in. No worries, just check it every once in a while.
I look forward to emailing all of you!
