Guest Post: Are You a No-Reply Comment Blogger?

If you have to ask, you probably are. Being a no-reply comment blogger means that whenever you comment on someone else’s blog, they can’t respond to you via email because your email address shows up as "". This is one of Blogger’s worse default settings for sure. No worries though, it’s a quick fix! Just follow these three simple steps:

Step One: Go to your Blogger Dashboard and click the dropdown button in the top right. From there it should allow you to click on “Blogger Profile”.

*Note: If you get rerouted to Google+, this just means that your blog is tied to your Google+ profile, not your Blogger profile. If this is the case, you will need to temporarily switch back to your Blogger Profile to manage this setting. Try using the lower drop-down menu (with the little wheel icon) and choose "Revert to Blogger Profile". Then you should be able to follow the rest of the steps below. You can always change back when you're done.

Step Two: Once you get to your Blogger Profile, click the button at the top right that says “Edit Profile”.

Step Three: Ensure the box is checked next to “Show my email address”. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click “Save Profile”.

Et voila! Now other bloggers can respond to you! If you have any troubles, shoot me a quick email and I’d be happy to help you out (

  1. This is good to know. I think many people don't realize it. Commenting back and forth is a great way to drive traffic and get blogs noticed!


  2. I don't use blogger, so this isn't something I know too well. With my blog, an e-mail address is necessary (not shown publicly) to comment.

    One thing I have noticed about blogger blogs, though, is people not leaving all options open for people do say who they are (including here). I don't like having my Google account linked. There is an option for people to allow comments based on a lot of things, including name and URL. For those of us who don't have Blogger blogs, it's a nice thing to be able to do that.


Thanks for your comment!
