Por Favor?

Comments. It's the most fun part of this blogging business. I love the interaction, the perspectives, the heartfelt things you all say. I want to respond to them all! It would be so much easier to just be able to respond via email, and I could do that if....

If you have a Blogger account, and you reset your settings to show your email. It would just take a sec, and then when you leave comments on peoples blogs, they could respond to you. Trust me. It's fun. If you don't have a Blogger account, it just takes a couple of minutes to set one up.

I found this little tutorial on line.....

If you would like people to be able to email you back after you leave a comment, here's how you change those settings. Well, at least in Blogger. Those of you with WordPress and other non-Googly blogs will have to figure out things on your own. :)
  1. Click on the Customize link in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
  2. Click on the Dashboard link in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
  3. Click on Edit Profile, which is on the left hand side of the screen next to your picture.
  4. This will take you to the Edit User Profile screen.
  5. Look in the Privacy section.
  6. Check the box that says, "Show my email address".
  7. In the Identity section, enter in an email address. (Paranoid users: create a new email address for this, if you want.)
  8. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on Save Profile.
And there you have it. Interactive comments!


  1. You are just so helpful! I have my email public and have recieved some very nice comments. Unfortunately when I removed the verification code recently I began to get spam. Our computer crashed about a year ago and I sure don't want to have to go through that again. Love the squirrel pictures. I have a young one that comes and does the little "Please give me a cookie" thing! He sits just outside my study window and I can't say no!

  2. Why not just answer in the comments? Then everyone can see the answer...

  3. Joycee, thank for the comment! Oh my goodness, I just love these squirrels. I don't reckon I'd like them so much if I had a bunch of them in my yard destroying things, but I don' I like them!

    Karen Anne...that is what I usually do, but I didn't know if anyone bothered coming back to see if I'd responded!

    Queeny...thanks! :-)

  4. I always come back to you blog to see what you have written as replies to us who comment. Thanks!

  5. PS: We have tons of big fat squirrels in our yard in Grass Valley. They love the seeds I put out for the birds. I like watching them play and run around the trunks of the trees. Funny little guys.

  6. Dogwood, I'm so glad you do! I didn't know if anyone took the time to do it, and that is why I thought the email might work better. :-) Thanks!

  7. I love the squirrle photo leaning against the tree!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
