If you won, would you know?

I love all your comments.  They make me smile, laugh, think, and just enjoy getting to know you.  Which means I usually want to send a little something back to you.  To let you know that "hey, I'm reading your comments and we're having a conversation".  I would say about 90% of the comments I click "reply" to, are "no-reply" which means that I could write you a whole love letter and you would NEVER GET IT!

Which means if you won any of the fun giveaways I do here...... you would NEVER KNOW.  Because I e-mail my winners and if I have no way to e-mail you, I move on to the next winner.  Sorry, it's how I roll.

So maybe you don't even know your a "no-reply" commenter.  Have you ever gotten a response from me to a comment you've left?  I'm not saying I reply to EVERY comment, but if your a regular and you've never heard from me, chances are your "no-reply".  So what do you need to do to fix it? Glad you asked!
  1. In blogger.com, click on Dashboard.
  2. Select Edit Profile.
  3. Check the box for "Show my Email Address."
  4. Save changes.
It's that easy.  And now we can continue to be friends, from both sides! 

And if you haven't yet, make sure you enter the giveaway that started yesterday!

  2. I get responses by e-mails from other bloggers daily, so I'm going to be presumptuous and say that my settings are A-okie dokie. If I win something I wanna know! LOL

  3. I've only ever gotten a few responses from bloggers and I normally leave my e-mail in the comment but I went and changed it just in case! Thanks so much for pointing it out!

  11. Theresa------ ABSOLUTELY! No-reply blogger just means your account is with blogger. And it applies to YOU! I tried to reply to you by e-mail to tell you this....but, got the no-reply message, you need to do the steps above in order to get responses :)
