Since Google + has come into the picture, something has drastically changed across the board. If you have upgraded to the Google + dashboard, and blog or comment through blogger, you probably are a brand spankin’ new noreply blogger.
Noreply means your profile/email aren’t properly linked together. So when you comment on my blog, I can’t respond back to you via email.
So this is what I see instead of a return email address from you. Bummer.
Why did this happen?
This is a glitch between Google + and blogger. When you switched to Google, you lost the option to fix blogger account settings. So now what you must do is revert back to your old blogger dashboard to fix, then you can go back to Google again.Warning! The issue remains a glitch so many have to repeat this fix more than once. Frequently even. Painful, but it’s the only way if you are choosing to stay with a Google profile while this glitch exists.
How do I know if I’m a noreply?
You don’t. That’s the part that’s frustrating. Unless someone gets a noreply email from you, travels to your blog, finds your email and notifies you, you won’t ever know except for your inbox getting a little quieter.
I get HUNDREDS of noreply comments through my inbox and it’s impossible for me to email each of you, so I hope you will check to see if this applies to you.
Check anywayEven if you haven’t made the switch to the new Google profile, I suggest you check your blogger settings anyway. And for those that don’t blog but do comment, if you don’t have an email activated through blogger, you come up as a noreply. I implore anyone that comments on blogger blogs to attach your blogger profile to an email so we can reply back to you. Truly I do. You just MUST have an email activated for this to work. If you’re staying incognito for security purposes, fire up a hotmail or gmail. Anything.
