Next, here is a list, and some free advertising for a few of you...but you know what this list is? People who comment on my blog, and to which I would LOVE to reply, but you are STILL No-Reply Commenters!!! ARRRRGGHHHH!!! You can fix this SO easily, just go here.

This is not a complete list, just ones recently I have tried to reply to, and in some cases, written an entire email to only to look up discover that my email is addressed to No_Reply lalaland. If you are staying no-reply on purpose for some reason, then just ignore this.

If you are not sure how yours is set, simply go here...

I'm not on the list... that means I have changed my settings the right way right? LOL Have a glorious sunday!

Young Momma said...

LOL Good Job Jay!!! I hate when I realize that I've written to a no-reply blog! ;)

That drives me crazy too! I've even gone to people's blogs to tell them to add their emails. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't.

This REALLY drives me crazy since I do my graphics business.
Someone asks for a layout, I type out an entire email explaining what I need and when it'll be done, etc. and then I realize it's a no-reply address.
So then I have to comment on their blog, and that eats up my time. And it's just infuriating.

Love that you called people out. I agree that it makes me angry when there's no email, AND their blog is private.

jill jill bo bill said...

I love how gentle you are. You are so lady-like.

Crafty Christina said...

Ok, you win. I changed it just for you! Thanks for the reminder. :)

Beadiful Things said...

Okay, I'm still not sure what being "reply-able" even means, but I've made the requisite changes. So reply to me and see if I did it right!

April said...

LOL. i think i'm going to change mine just to get some free linky love. hahaha.

Ally @ Waiting For Rain said...

OK - here goes - i have changed settings and saved profiles and now wait with bated breath to receive all your witty and sarcastic comebacks.. and by the way, in response to the "oh woe is me, people don't like me at first, they get to know me thing..." I liked you the first time I met you, but then I am a) british and therefore superior, I mean, naturally like new people, ahem! and b) also very sarcastic, a gift which I rarely see in others and therefore adore on sight!!
Hope my linky works!

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

Not on the list, thank God.

BoufMom9 said...

Too funny about the list! I think those people just want free advertising! LOL

Hoping you are really successful on the 21st! Can't wait to hear what your raise!!!!

Tony@ That One Paticular Harbor said...

Schweew for once in my damn life I am not on the hit list. What a relief.BTW- It does bug me when I can't reply to someone who has been so kind as to visit my wacky island Harbor and leave a note.

Clare said...

Momisodes said...

I SUCK! I'm so sorry I missed this. I have been notified by a few bloggers that I am don't have this turned on. Hopefully, it works now!
