I've been asked how to not be a "no reply" commentor, so I'm going to go through the steps. I'm a visual learner, so there are lots of pictures.
Edit: if you are are on Goggle + here's a few places that address that problem:
This is all for blogger, since that's what I know.
First of all you need to have a blogger account, from the research I've done, it looks like, if you don't have some kind of account, WordPress, Blogger, etc. then you will need to leave your email in your comment. Make it easy on yourself and set up an account, it's easy and fast.You don't have to have a blog, just an account and who knows you may want to blog someday. Go here to set one up:
Now here are the steps to make sure your email is used for comments. No one sees them except the person you are commenting to, so it's safe.
The white on white may be hard to see, but just look for the red arrows I put in.
Go to the blogger dashboard:
At the very top you'll see this, of course it will be your name, if it's my name I've given you way too much info :)
See the little down arrow next to your name, click it
You'll see this:
Click on Blogger Profile and this will come up.
Click on Edit Profile
Make sure the "show my email address" box is checked and make sure your email is listed.
Then go all the way to bottom of the page and click "save profile"
That's it, you're done. Remember no one sees your email, when you leave a comment it's just like you sent an email, your comments show up in my email and I answer you by just hitting reply. It's easy for all of us.
Want to test it out? Leave me a comment and I'll answer you. (If it worked.... insert evil laugh here)
