What is a “no reply” blogger you ask? Well, it means that in my blogger user profile (probably when I connected it w/Google+ (herein referred to as G+)) the little box that says “show my email address” came un-checked, so whenever I left a comment or question on a blog, the blogger couldn’t respond to me. For the last year, (yes an entire year!), when I didn’t get responses from bloggers I just thought maybe I asked a dumb question or they didn’t really like my comments (which were always nice) or they were too busy to reply. But that wasn’t the case at all! It all had to do w/how my profile was set up! I read several posts on how to fix the “no reply” blogger issue,here, here and herebut before I could do the 1st step in any of them, I had to disconnect my blog from G+. Though I’m sad that I’ve missed correspondence w/some bloggers, I’m glad the issue is fixed and I’m happy to say that I’m no longer a “no reply” blogger!
The issue was kindly brought to my attention by my new blogging/quilting friend at triangles and squares. Thank you Christine! Before I found out about the “no reply” issue, my blog was connected w/ G+. I’ve since learned that when a blog is connected w/G+, only peeps w/G+ profiles can comment on posts. I want ALL my readers to be able to comment on my blog so I’ve decided not to re-connect w/G+. The only downside is now I can’t display my G+ followers on my blog page. BUT wait a minute!!! After much searching, I finally found this post and was able to get Google Friend Connect to work on my blog!!! So here is a final request to ALL the peeps in my G+ circles: PLEASE take a few seconds and visit my blog and under the About Me Section, click on Join this Site with Google Friend Connect, Connect w/Google, Follow Publicly. Thank you in advance for the support in helping me develop my blog. God Bless.
