public service announcement

Hello friends! I've been meaning to post about these two things for a while some people have no clue about these simple things that make connecting with your fellow-bloggers that much easier!

You may or may not know, but you can reply to a comment on your blog by email. When you get a comment notification in your email, just hit reply. If you see that means the commenter does not have an email address associated with their account. Either that, or they are not a member of blogger.

It's frustrating when I want to reply to you all, but can't email! In that case I will turn to twitter if I know I follow the commenter, or I will post a reply on their blog. Not ideal. But you can add your email to your profile so people can respond to your comment!

Just make sure your email address is listed in your blogger profile and make sure you select 'show my email address.' It's that simple!

My friend Caroline recently posted about this as well... she even posted pictures! Go read her post if you need help!

If you follow c. jane create in google friend connect (GFC), and I do not follow your blog back... it's probably because I don't know what it is! Some people do not have their link on their profile.

The easiest way for blogger users to change this is to allow GFC to pull your Blogger Profile over. Then your blog link will automatically be shown. {as far as I know... } I have GFC pull my blogger profile, so I'm not sure how other profiles work... but there has to be a way!

The other route is you to comment on this post and let me know you are a follower. Then I can follow you back!

If you have any questions, let me know and I will do my best to answer them.

xoxo, christa
