Dear No-Reply Comment Blogger,

11.09.2012

There are a few things I hate when I blog... The captcha, which you should all remove because sometimes those TINY numbers are impossible to read. Especially when they are super blurry.


And second is noreply-comment@blogger.com. I really want to answer your emails. But.... I cant. Because you have made yourself basically blogger invisible. So here I am today. To TEACH you how to fix that! If you have recently changed over to Google+ chances are you are now a noreply-comment blogger, even if you weren't before. Imagine my surprise when people that had been replying to my comments for months messaged me and said "You are a noreply blogger..." I was sad for them. And for me. Because all that means is I have become that person that I never wanted to be! So here we go with the tutorial. It is rather simple. Let's do this.

Step 1
Click the sprocket, then in the drop down menu click "Revert to Blogger profile".

Step 2
 Click the scary orange "Switch to a limited Blogger profile". You don't have to stay a limited blogger for long... so it isn't as scary as they are making it seem.

Step 3
 Click the orange "Continue to Blogger" button. This will bring you back to your homepage.

Step 4
 In the top right corner click on your photo (or the silhoutte if your blogger profile is photoless) and then click the "blogger profile" link.

Step 5
Click the orange "Edit Profile" button.

Step 6
Make sure the box next to "Show my email address" is checked. Go save. Return to your blogger dashboard. Click on the sprocket that started it all. And click "Connect to Google+".. it will take you through a few steps to get you back to your Google+ account. 

If you want to test your noreply-comment blogger status, leave a comment on this post and I will let you know! Also. Don't forget to enter the Stella & Dot Giveaway!

Love,
Deidre

Whitney@SomethingBroughtYouHere said...

totally agree with you on this! When I was first blogging I honestly had NO idea how to fix this or that I was a "no reply" but someone posted about this a while ago and then I realized how dumb I was ;)

Jami Luallin said...

Wow, thanks for this!!! I had no idea that it switched with Google+ Thanks so much for sharing. Did I fix it?

Mary Davis said...

I totally agree with your thoughts- and I hope that I wasn't one of those no-reply, but I changed it just in case! Thanks!

Brani Laine said...

Ack! Glad you posted this, because I always worried whether people got my replies to their comments they left on my blog and if it was something I was personally doing wrong, or what. I also think I have the annoying captcha thing turned off, because I hate it, too, so if I don't...please, tell me! Thanks for writing this, girlfraaand.

Tiffany Cutcliff said...

I hate this TOO! In fact, I was just thinking this literally before I found your blog! I am glad you posted this, because I was recently a no comment blogger and didn't even know. It was sad. Haha but thanks to generous folks like you it was fixed!

I am a new follower from the Friday blog hop! Looking forward to your blog!

Oh no!! Thanks for posting. Would you be able to tell me if I am a no replier?

Anita said...

I know this is an old post, but I DO have that check box checked and I still come up as a noreply-comment@blogger. Goofy. And my blogger account is not linked to Google+. And it happens even if I use the OpenID option as well.

Kelley Howell said...

Thank goodness for this. I was on google + and getting that no-reply. So I followed the steps and updated blogger then went back to google +. Thanks!!! (if this is still no-reply let me know :) loveyphotodesigns@gmail.com)

Kyla Smits said...

I just tried this, I hope it worked! thanks :) here is my email just in case kylablu@gmail.com

Amanda Schroeder said...

Yep. You're the best. Testing 123? See if this works. Because when I switched back to Google+, it may have messed it up again.

K you're the best bye

Lacy Bennett said...
