No-reply Blogger

Are you not receiving replies to the nice comments that you leave on other peoples blogs? Do you have to go back to their blog to see if they replied? The reason you're not getting the replies may be because you are a noreply-comment on blogger. 

Sweet Veronica from passionpinkandpearls.blogspot left me a comment telling me that I was a no-reply blogger. I had no idea and no idea how to fix that! However google is amazing and there are people that have put amazing sites and information out there. This is mostly a post so I don't forget but for anyone else of my friends that have this problem! 

Blogger Profile - follow steps 5-7
Google+ Profile - follow steps 2-9

Step 1 - Check to see if you are a noreply blogger
  • Make a comment on your own blog
  • Check your email to see if you received the comment
  • Check to see who the email is from. Is it your email address? or "
  • If it is from, than you are a No-Reply Blogger and will need to make some changes.

Step 2 - Go to your Blogger dashboard
  • Click on the gear in the upper right hand corner
  • Choose "Revert to Blogger Profile" (this is only temporary)

Step 3 - Switch your Profile
  • Click on "Switch to a limited Blogger Profile"

Step 4 - Confirm your Profile
  • Fill out "Display Name"
  • Click on " Continue to Blogger"

Step 5 - Back to the Blogger dashboard
  • Click on your name in the upper right hand corner
  • In the drop down box click on "Blogger Profile"

Step 6 - Edit your Profile
  • Click on "Edit Profile" in the upper right hand corner

Step 7 - Changing Email Settings
  • Check the box "Show my Email Address"
  • Click on "Save Profile" at the bottom of the page
Step 8 - Switching back to Google+
  • Go back to your blogs dash board
  • Click on "Google+
  • On the next page click on "Upgrade to Google+"
Step 9 - Connect to Google+
  • At the bottom of the page check the box
  • Click on "Switch Now"
Now you will be able to view all of the replies to your comments.

UPDATE: Be sure to check your status periodically! I've found that it can revert back to a no-reply status. I haven't figured out why yet, but my best guess is that it has something to do with making changes to either Blogger or Google+. I've made it a habit to check it whenever I make any changes and I also check it once a month just to be sure.


  1. Did my comment work!?!?!? :)

  2. Hey thanks for posting this! I didn't even know I was a no-reply blogger! I replied to one of your comments and I think it worked. :)

    1. Alexa, I'm glad I could help, I had no idea either, so I just posted it for people like me and you :)

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Nice work lady! :)

    ps: when responding to people, respond via email otherwise they have no clue that you responded. I wouldn't know unless I came back to your page to see. That's something that took me a long time to learn. :)

    Anyway, where is this challenge?


I love comments! Let me know what you think of this post!
