The reason I am going to post this is so that, if you want to reply to blog commenters, via Blogger, you can, directly, via email.
Or, if, as a commenter, you'd like bloggers to be able to reply to you directly and personally, they can.
So, if you are in this blogging game for engagement, for community, for building relationships, this may be useful for you...
How to enable email replies in Blogger
1. Go to your Blogger Dashboard, and on the left hand side, go to your profile section, and click the "Edit Profile" option:
2. Go to the Privacy Section, and CHECK the "Show my email address" box
3. Scroll down a little, to the identity section, and add the email address you want replies to go to. (It's important to note here that you can use ANY email address - you are not restricted to your login email - I use a different one, just for blogging. So you can still maintain security and privacy if you want to...)
4. Scroll right down to the bottom left and hit SAVE PROFILE.
And it's that simple.
If you enable this, it will mean that when you comment on any Blogger blog, that the blogger can reply back to you directly.
For even more handy hints on how to get the absolute best out of comments, Jane, of Life on Planet Baby, has a wonderfully detailed post here too: Life on Planet Baby: Tutorial: handling comments and email replies with Blogger
