HELLO....did you hear from me?
I've had several no-reply bloggers that no matter how I tried,
I couldn't figure out who they were (and I worked hard to track them down.)
Question: What's a no-reply blogger?
Answer: Someone who leaves a comment on a blog, but there is no email address to respond to.
It's all about how they set-up their profile and whether they want people to see their email address.
How do you know if you're a no-reply blogger?
You don't get a reply back from the bloggers where you leave messages or enter giveaways.
No reply...ever...never...because we can't, which means you can't win or get a reply/answer.
The fix: My sidebar has one way to fix it or you can leave your
email address at the end of your comment. It's that easy. Sort of.
Open ID or Google+ comments sometimes don't let me see the email address.
I hear that Yahoo addresses are a whole different story and they can't
leave a comment unless they create a Google account.
I'm asking this to help someone I have no answer for:
If you have a Yahoo email address, how do you comment
on Google blogs? Do you have to create a Google account or blog?
UPDATE: Website that might help a few of you:
Based upon the info I've received, it looks like Google+ has played
a little havoc with making us no-reply bloggers without us even knowing it.
I've switched back to just showing my blogger profile for now.
Thanks everybody for sharing what you know about
this no-reply thing. Dang it! They just need to make it easy for us!
