If you're on the blogger platform, and you leave a comment, your comment drops directly into my e-mail. And a lot of times I will try to respond to you directly from my e-mail account, because it's much easier!
I wrote a post exactly like this years ago, but I think it definitely bears repeating. Especially after the post I wrote yesterday about wanting to connect with my readers! I have been trying to respond to so many of you, but I can't because when I click send, this is what I see:
"firstname.lastname@example.org" (sorry, nikki, just using you as an example) ;-)
Here's how you can fix that!!
1. At the top right of your blogger dashboard, you will see your profile and a down arrow, click that. And then click on "Blogger Profile".
2. Top right corner, click "Edit Profile"
3. Make sure the box that says "Show my email address" is clicked ON! And then verfiy your e-mail in the "Identity" section below.
4. And don't forget to scroll all the way down and click "Save" ;-)
From here on out, people (like me!) should be able to respond to your comments directly!!
Hope this helps :)
