When you visit my fledgling blog and are kind enough to write a comment to tell me how witty, intelligent, and fiery handsome I am, those comments I have set to come to my email, where I can pump up my ego wherever I am in the world.
But many times, I want to be able to respond to your comment right there over email, and unless you have it set to do so, I will be facing a "no-reply" address in the face...and my ego will be instantly deflated...for I will know that you adore me, but you don't REALLY want to strike up a conversation with me.
First, here is how to make the comments come to your email from your blog:
Click the Settings Tab
Where it says "Comment Notification Email?" enter your email address...you can enter up to TEN addresses!
Click Save Settings, and you are done.
Now, to make your comments reply-able:
Open your Profile Page
Click Edit Profile
Put check marks in "Share my profile" and "Show my email address"
Under "Identity" and "Email Address", put the email address you wish for to publish, and have your comment replies to come to
Want to change your "Display Name" while you are here? I like to use "Jay @ HalftimeLessons" for a little branding...I wouldnt use it for your name, of course...
Click Save Profile, and you are done, my friend.
Thanks to Carissa at "Good and Crazy People" for first teaching me this one. She seriously rocks...go look around.
Have you turned off that damn Comment Word Verification yet? Here's how.
