I'm such a woman! Here's an easy way you can help me email you back!

Only two comments into using Disqus again yesterday and I've already removed it. See what I mean about my love/hate relationship? I have the right to change my mind constantly though, right? :)

Many people don't have Disqus accounts and I don't really like the generic, no picture, anonymous posts that people tend to leave with Disqus because they aren't registered or don't want to link their other accounts like Facebook to their comments. I'm right there with you! I rarely link my Facebook, Google, or Yahoo! accounts if I can help it.

So....back to regular comments through Blogger for the blog.

However, here's a way you can help if you have a Blogger profile.

  1. Go to your Dashboard
  2. Click on the Edit Profile link next to your picture.
  3. Click to put a checkmark in the Show my email address box.
  4. (See pictures below if you aren't sure what the pages look like.)

Then, when someone tries to reply to your comment, they can actually do it through email, as opposed to seeing the in the To: part of the address line of an email. It will actually show your email address and I will be able to respond to your comments personally.

If you don't have an email address listed, I try to track you down through your profile or blog first. Otherwise, the best I can do is use an @ sign in front of your name on the post you commented on and hope that you might come back and read it. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer. Obviously, the choice is yours as to whether or not you are comfortable having your email address on your profile, but if you do, it will be much easier to contact you!
