I don’t do many (or any really) blogging tutorials because well…..I’m not an expert. So I leave the tutorials to those who are much more tech savvy than myself. I’ve recently had some folks visiting my blog that are No Reply Bloggers. For those new to blogging, or friends who aren’t bloggers, being a “No Reply Blogger” means that every time you comment on a blog post, I can’t respond to you via email. So I have to respond to you in the comments on the blog, which means you have to come back to the blog to see that I replied to your comment. Not a lot of people do that, so I think most No Reply Bloggers think they are being ignored.
Well I’m here to tell you that you are not being ignored! I promise I read and respond to every comment I receive on my blog! And you are not alone! A lot of folks are still set up as no reply bloggers.
Fixing the problem is really pretty easy, there are just a few things you have to change in your blogger profile. I had my own tutorial all ready to go, but then I found this one by Diana at Anyone Can Decorate and it was so good I decided just to link to hers. 🙂 You can go HERE to read the tutorial and follow her instructions. Hopefully this helps some of you ladies who feel like you’ve been being ignored.
CAPTCHA is one other thing that I recommend you change if you use blogger as your platform. CAPTCHA is blogger’s word verification, and requires people to enter a verification code before they post a comment on your blog. A lot of us now blog on our phones, and I don’t know how user friendly CAPTCHA is for mobile devices. Therefore, this could be keeping people from commenting on your blog. We don’t want that! So I found another easy to follow tutorial for you. Click HERE to remove word verification from your blog and see the comments start rolling in!
Have a great Tuesday friends!
