Alright -- Lisa asked how she can fix the "no-reply comment" thing. I searched on Google and found two blog posts from helpful people. They seem to say the same thing. It's not very hard to fix.
I believe GretchenJoanna and Deborah Montgomery are both "no-reply." I'm not quite sure. I know I've conversed with Debbie, so I'm not sure why she popped up as a "no-reply" blogger yesterday. Debbie, I had to open up a new email box and email you directly, instead of using a reply.
Here's the first link. Her name's Venus and she's a little sassier :)
Here's the second link.
Both the links give you page shots with notes to show you exactly what to do.
Basically, I think you have to ask your blogger dashboard profile to show your email address to the person on whose blog you are posting a comment. If you allow that, then the person can email you back easily, and occasionally a lovely conversation develops about things you have in common. Some of my best blog friendships have resulted from these email exchanges.
However, it's perfectly understandable that some people don't really want to share their email addresses, even with people whose blogs they read. In that case, you may just need to accept that you will comment, but that the bloggers you read won't reply to your comments. Or you might want to get a separate email address that's ONLY for blogging conversations.
This post is mainly for those who are "no-reply" and unaware of it. In the first link above, there's apparently an easy way to find out, just by looking on your blogger dashboard. Go look! I did :)
I'm not quite sure, but I think last time I blogged about this (and I can't find that post), I discovered that PomPom and Kezzie were "no-reply." I'd been merrily carrying on (what I thought was) a fabulous friendship conversation with PomPom for ages, never realizing that she didn't every ANSWER my reply emails to her. It's because she wasn't getting them! I giggled when I found that out. Since then both PomPom and Kezzie have changed their settings and I'm able to email back and forth with them easily.
I hope this helps!
