THIS is Hubby’s serious face.
So those of you that have activated your email account in your blogger profile know that you get a little bit of Suger love and appreciation in your mailbox for every comment you leave. The thing you probably don’t know, is that it is my favourite part of reading all the comments. The shooting off a little email or thank you or OMG YES!! 
Which brings me to the serious bit.
You lot, the ones without the email address in your blogger {or linked} profile you are breaking my heart. Often I am half way through a response to you and I realise that actually I will be sending it to no-reply@blogger.com. I bet that guy is one popular dude. So please, stop breaking my heart and link an email address to your blogger profile. 
Now. you may, probably get spam. Deal with that now and open a Gmail account that can be solely for blog emails or blog surfing emails. I also use this account to subscribe to my blog posts {like backing them up really} and comments on the blog. it’s a one stop blog communication email address. Easy. And Gmail is free so why not. I have about 5 accounts. Plus the two managed in Google Apps. Then follow these steps;
  1. Go in to the Blogger dashboard {or wherever you would normally log in to}
  2. Go to the top right {or top left in old blue interface} and click on blogger profile {edit profile in old}. 
  3. Click on edit profile {new – now the two are directed to the same page, no more new old stuff!}
  4. Email address is about half way down the page, enter the new address here if you are changing from your normal log in one {NOTE: your log in one doesn’t change because you do this}. Click SAVE Profile {bottom right}. you may have to reenter edit profile. Maybe not. 
  5. When you have the address you want here tick on SHOW EMAIL ADDRESS. 
  6. Click SAVE PROFILE {again!{ and you are done. 

Sit back and wait for your Suger love {maybe comment after your down so I can send you a whoop email!} and the emails from loyal fans who always wished they could email you and couldn’t. And the spam. You’ll probably get spam. Another good reason to use a Gmail account. The filter system is pretty darn good. Thanks Google. Love you.

Because seriously, if I email old mate no-reply @blogger again I will scream, or cry, or scream AND cry. And you don’t want to do that to me, do you!? Haha.

    Thank you for posting this, I have been trying to figure out how to get my point across without it turning into a rant & you have beaten me to it! SO MANY people do this, & it's so frustrating. No-reply blogger is driving me NUTS!xx

  • Kristie

    I don't know if I do this right or not…?I admit to being a crap reply-er when it comes to comments, but am getting better… 🙂 but I am a wordpress gal and am still learning the kinks.. and "We need to have a serious chat? FML… this is what my OH said to me this morning! LOL.

    I don't have my email publicly displayed on my Blogger profile because the email that's attached to my Blogger account is my personal email. The issue with opening a separate Gmail account solely to link to your Blogger is that when you're signed into one Google-owned product, you're signed into them all under that account. I'd have to continually sign in and out of each Google-owned account every time I wanted to access Blogger, then Gmail, then Google Plus, etc.But maybe that's just me. A personal preference.

    I like getting little email replies to my comments. I don't do the same thing on my blog though, I just reply to all commenters in the comments box.

  • Jo

    Serious Suger is a bit bossy.I think mine was already set up. Maybe. BBQ Shapes Rock! 🙂

  • Cat

    Had no idea you could do this! I shall have to check out if I'm one of those you want to break up with! You're super fab suger! Xxx

  • Love getting your emails! Great to see bloggers who interact with their community 🙂

  • Megan, of course you can choose not to have it shown. But they have just altered it so you can change the settings to being logged in to one than one account at a time. Top right corner.

  • Top right corner >> In Gmail that is, not Blogger.

  • I had no idea that it wasn't enabled – thanks for helping me see the error of my ways xx

  • Kristen

    Slightly embarrassed that I hadn't realised that's what you had to do…. And I'm a blogger! But a new one, so I could be forgiven, right? Thanks Sugar!

  • Surely Sarah

    Done and done! Took your advice and opened a new, blog-related email account to prevent spam to my personal one.I had no idea that you could rely to blogger comments via email – will have to try this!

  • Ianstein

    Love your Blog…long time reader,first time commentor. 🙂

  • My Beautiful World

    Love getting emails, tweets, help just love hearing from you and love your blog my friend xoAlways Wendy

  • Jayne

    Ack! I thought mine was set up, but alas! Rectified now.

  • Amy

    that is one of my pet hates! I have been known to write a HUGE reply then check and discover they are a noreply@blogger.com! I may or may not have screamed in frustration because of it too…

  • Natalie

    I love my Suger mail xoxo.

  • Kylie @ The Rockgarden

    THANK YOU! Standing ovation for this post. Pet peeve of mine too, and if you don't have an email on your comment then No Reply For You!I have never gotten the hang of following up with comments on the post page – if I leave a comment on a post I rarely if ever come back to check it and see if there was a reply to me. How does one keep up with that? Help me Suger!

  • Jos Parkinson

    Ok, I have cleared all my settings & re typed everything cause maybe my problem was a spelling mistake (yep, I am a slacker!). Maybe now I am a reply blogger & not a “no-reply” blogger anymore!   😉
