No-Reply Bloggers :: tutorial ::

As a blogger, there is nothing more frustrating that not being able to easily reply back to a comment because someone is a ''no-reply blogger.''

I get dozens (hundreds sometimes) emails a day... and I've adjusted my settings so that anonymous & spam comments are automatically deleted.  Unfortunately, most ''no-reply blogger'' comments end up in my spam folder, and those that don't get set aside for a minute when I can track down the commenter's email... 

Now, from what I understand, I think Google+ could have something to do with this AND many of you might not even realize you're a no-reply blogger.  Since I SUCK at tutorials & all this fantastic techy bloggy stuff, I enlisted the help of a fellow blogger... the rockin' Carly of Texas Lovebirds!

She's here today with some tips to help you figure out if you're a no-reply blogger and what you can do to remedy it!  Thanks Carly!!



Hi, y'all! I'm Carly, the writer behind Texas Lovebirds. I'm a proud firefighter wife, 7th grade teacher turned SAHM, and I'm way too sarcastic for my own good.

Yesterday, Lena reached out on Twitter about a no reply blogger tutorial (unsure of what a no reply blogger is? then you'll want to keep reading). She was looking for a tutorial, I was willing to write one, and here we are!

As bloggers, we love to connect, right? We love to share our thoughts and hopefully start a conversation.  And maybe, you've been trying to do that. You leave comments -- thought provoking responses or a question for your favorite bloggers -- and you receive no response...EVER.

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret, you're probably a no reply blogger.

You see, a lot of bloggers (including myself) like to respond to comments left via email. I get an email every time someone comments on my blog and I usually respond back through email. Unless, that person is a no reply blogger. 
If you're a no reply blogger, this is what your "email address" would look like when I try to respond to a comment you've left...


Now, I used good ole' Anonymous as an example because I didn't want to call out anyone specific BUT I see this "email" associated with many real people.

So how do you fix it? It's simple really. It can be done in four steps which I will show in the four screen shots below. I must first apologize that the screen shots are a little small. I did everything I could to make them a little bigger without distorting the image, and this is the biggest I could get them. If you need to see the images a little bigger, just click on them and you should be able to enlarge them. 
I should also note that this is the fix for blogger, I don't know anything about WordPress or if it's even possible to be a no reply blogger on that platform. Sorry!
Okay, now let's get started!

Do you like this tutorial? Then pin this image and share it on Pinterest!


STEP ONE. // Go to your dashboard.


STEP TWO. // Click the drop down arrow by your name and profile picture in the right hand corner. You will want to click the link to go to your Blogger profile.


STEP THREE. // When you arrive at your Blogger profile, you should see your main picture on the left hand side, a list of your blogs, and a list of all of the blogs you follow. On this page there is an orange "Edit Profile" button in the right hand corner, click that.


STEP FOUR. // You will be taken to the "Edit User Profile" page. You will see a set of options listed under the "Privacy" category. The second option says "Show my email address," make sure that the box next to that option is checked. Checking that box will fix your no reply blogger problem! If you do not like the email that it is associated with, you can scroll down and change that in the "Email Address" option under the "Identity" category.


Make sure you save all your changes, and that's it! See, I told you it was easy!

Now, there is one possibility that this step-by-step guide will not fix your problem. If you have your Google+ account and your Blogger account linked, you will need to go through other steps to fix the issue. You should know if you've linked your two accounts. 
I have a Google+ account but never enabled the two to be connected so I don't have this issue. Since I don't have this issue, there's really no way for me to show it to you without messing up my account, BUT I can give you some written steps without the pictures, to help walk you through the process.

Steps For Fixing The "No Reply Blogger" Issue When You're Linked To Google+:
1) Go to your Dashboard
2) Click the wheel looking thing next your language option on the right hand side
3) Click "Revert to Blogger Profile"
4) Answer the questions and refill in your display name, then click "Continue to Blogger"
5) Follow steps 1-4 listed above
6) If you'd then like to reconnect your blog to Google+, go back to your Dashboard
7) Click the wheel thing again
8) Select connect to Google+
9) Confirm that you want to switch and you're done!

I hope that made sense! I tried to be as specific as possible, but if you need visual steps, you can click over to this tutorial on A Royal Daughter and see them there. 
If you're wondering if the steps worked, feel free to stop by my blog and leave a comment that lets me know you just used my step-by-step guide. If it worked, I'll reply to you via email! If it didn't work, I'll reply to your comment in the comment section of the post.

  1. Thank SO MUCH for this. Nothing more frustrating than trying to connect with a noreply blogger. Happy Saturday!

  2. Thanks for this tutorial. I had to ask a blogger friend how to enable my email a long time ago since I had no clue how to do it. But, I've noticed that when I post to my blog my information on my dashboard shows up as "noreply@blogger.com (Amy Bateman) at My Little One-Room Schoolhouse" with my blog post. Is there any way to get rid of the "noreply" part? I haven't been able to find anything in many searches other than how to enable your email for comments. Thanks!

  3. Amen to everything above.

    I always get the best comments from no-reply peeps and can't tell them how much I like their comment.

  4. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I had seen tutorials like this before but this is the first I have seen with the Google+ part added. I have linked my blog with Google+ and had no idea how to make sure I wasn't a no-reply blogger (which I think I was). I think I have fixed it now! Thank you again!!

    Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get
    listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

  7. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide
    credit and sources back to your site? My blog site is
    in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from some of the information you provide here.

    Please let me know if this okay with you. Cheers!

  8. of course like your web-site however you have to check
    the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them
    are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform
    the reality on the other hand I will certainly come again again.

  9. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    But imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
    website could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Great blog!

  32. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
