How to Enable Comment Replies: No More "noreply-comment@blogger"!


One of the most frustrating things as a blogger is getting comments from you guys and wanting to answer your questions or respond in some way and seeing that you don't have a setting corrected on your profile so I can't email you to respond to your comment! Instead of your email, I see "noreply-comment@blogger.com" in the reply-to box. I try to tell as many of you as possible when I track you down that this setting isn't set up correctly, but that's not always possible. Plus, I usually direct you to the wonderful Michele's blog (The Scrap Shoppe) to see her tutorial, but Blogger continues to change and the way you can fix this has changed so I figured I'd make my own tutorial!

I'm definitely not an expert and there may be other ways to do this, but this is just one way I know works and I'd really appreciate it if you all checked this on your profiles!

First, you want to log in to Blogger and just get to the dashboard... basically, go to blogger.com and if you're already logged in, you'll end up at a page that looks like this:

From there, you want to go up to that little box on the right hand side next to your email address and click on that arrow (I have the little arrow telling you where to go).

A little box will drop down or pop up at that point and you'll want to click on "Blogger Profile" (as highlighted below). (And if you're lucky, your profile can look very crushed and your head like a weird square too!)

That opens up a page like this (mine opens in a new tab, but that might just be my weird settings)...

From there, you want to click on that little blue box on the left hand side that says "Edit Profile" like the arrow is showing you here:

Then, the important thing to look for is "Show my email address" and you want to make sure that box is checked (it's highlighted and there's that big orange arrow pointing to it below). This is the critical part - that box MUST be checked so that I can see your email address and email you back (and all the other awesome bloggers you want to talk to)!

Also, the blue arrow is pointing you to the email address that shows up when I leave comments. This is NOT the same email address that I use to sign in to Blogger with and you can make your own separate account just for blogging if you want so you don't have to worry about not being anonymous if you check this box! 

Now, you just need to scroll down the page and save your work and comment everywhere!

You can feel free to try it out here - if you leave a comment and ask me to email you if you got it right, I'll do that (it might not be instantaneous, but I'll do it)!

  1. I completely agree that this is the most frustrating thing about blogger. The thing that ticks me off is that when blogs don't have GFC. It frustrates the heck out of me.

  4. That is one of my biggest pet peeves. I especially hate when I write out an email and don't realize until I go to send it that I have no address to send it to! I must have an older version of Blogger or something though because my dashboard looks completely different. Yours is so much nicer! Weird.

I LOVE comments! It's so much fun to hear your thoughts and ideas... so thanks for taking time to leave one!

I like to respond to comments, but can't if you are a "noreply-comment@blogger.com." You can easily fix this though - find tutorial here.
