what?! I’m a no-reply blogger!? the google+ fix

So I was emailing with Miss Amanda Madden {isn’t her name fun to say} and she told me I was a “no-reply” blogger. What?! How rude of me! She said that even if I leave my email address in a comment, you cannot reply to me by email.

Well, I am not that kind of girl, but I had no clue how to fix this! I found LOTS of tutorials on how to fix the problem, but they all said to edit your blogger profile. I repeatedly went to my blogger dashboard, but when I edited my profile, my screens looked nothing like the tutorials! I didn’t even have the same options!

Then I discovered the problem. I use my google+ profile…I was sold on the whole google+ idea, but I really do not even have the first clue what to do with it. How was I to get rid of this!!

I toyed around with my dasboard and here’s what I found.

When you use google+, there is no option to fix account settings in blogger.

Slide1

 

Slide2

Slide3

Slide4

After I had the problem fixed, I returned to the dashboard and switched back to google+. It makes me feel more at one with the tech world I guess! Now sweet bloggers like Amanda can email me when they comment on my comments! Thank you Amanda! and fyi-If you do not use google+ as your blog profile, just do the last 2 steps!

  7. I can't tell you how may tutorials I have looked at to fix this problem over the last week! None of them understood the problem!! I was too afraid of Google+ and their dire warnings to try and change back my profile! Thank you soooo much! Finally, someone who understood the problem and had an easy fix! You are fantastic, Rachel.I am off to change it now!

  12. Thanks so much!!! I was finally able to fix this! Now, if I could just figure out why my "reply" link won't work on my comments!

  13. Hallelujah, praise the LORD!!! I have been trying to fix that for months!!!!! Everyone just kept saying "Go to your dashboard and edit file, yada, yada, yada" There was NO edit file on my dashboard!!!! It was so frustrating and I spent freaking hours on that dashboard looking for it. Thank you SO MUCH!!!!

  26. Just found out this morning that I had been converted to a no-reply and immediately thought it must be Google+'s fault. Thank you for this quick fix! I'm off to see if it works.

  30. I tried changing by going back to my blogger account...but I just read on the google+ help site that they delete your blogger account after 30 days...so I would have to create a whole new account to be able to not be a "no-reply blogger" is there another way to find out from google how to do this?

  36. I had a terrible time getting back to my Blogger profile, but I did it awhile back. Just today I was notified from Sylvia at http://www.sweetpeasylvie.com/ that I was a no-reply blogger! What??? I had no idea! Since reverting back to Blogger, I hadn't checked any of the settings, so now it's fixed. But because of Sylvia's nice email, I am now a new follower here. =0)
