R U a No-Reply Blogger? How to Change Your No-Reply Status

I have received so many lovely comments from many different bloggers over the last couple years of my blogging and I really do try to respond with at least a thank you to most of the notes I've received. But I have to tell you how heart breaking it is for me when I receive a beautiful comment on a blog post via my email, and then I see this next to the author's name...noreply-comment@blogger.com which means they have a "no-reply" status on their blog. Sadly, I am unable to respond to their comment because if I do my note will end up in cyberspace somewhere. Are you one of the many bloggers out there who may not even know you are a no-reply blogger?

Let me give you the quick tutorial on how you can change your status in Blogger. 

First you need to go to your dashboard page. You know it...it looks like this.

Next go to the upper right corner of the page and click on the arrow adjacent to your name.

A box will open and it will look like this. Click Blogger profile and this page will open up for you.

Your profile page will open and again go to the upper right hand corner and click on the "Edit Profile" button. 

This is what will open up for you. This is where you can edit your profile.  

If the "show email" box is un-clicked then you are a "No-Reply " blogger. So if you want to change your status it must have a check in it.

Next scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. Click on the "Save Profile" button.

And that's it...you're done! Now when you leave a comment on someone's blog the email generated will be sent to them with your email address included for an easy reply. 

Personally I have found this not only to be a valuable way of staying connected to other bloggers, but unbelievably instrumental in helping to foster new friendships.

I truly hope this is of some help to you my fellow bloggers and to a few of my followers of whom I would love to get to know much better.



  1. Barbara -Thank you so much for doing this. I just sent it to someone who has been having a hard time figuring it out and I didn't have a picture tutorial. You are genius! xo Diana

  2. Yes, that someone is me! he he he he
    I have been struggling with this for weeeeeeks now!

    My Google+ account kept overriding my blogger account.
    Then when I changed it back to blogger I lost my Google+ account.
    Now I want to try your tutorial on changing the no-reply comment issue I have and I still can't.
    Because now it goes to my Google+ profile.
    Needless to say it really bothers me... I get so many comments on the fact that people just can not reply to me.
    Still I do get people trying and trying and figuring out there is a way to reply back to me.
    But it is such a roundabout hastle that not everyone wants to go through.

    Thanks for this tute though... still it is unfortunately not helping me out :(


  3. Thanks for the step-by-step guide. I recently changed some things and somehow became a no-reply blogger. I'm posting now, because I think I have resolved the situation. If you happen to notice I'm still a no-reply blogger, would you please drop me a note at kmcassie at gmail (dot) com

  4. Help, when I click on the little arrow, I have NO orange B with 'blogger profile'!! I have suddenly become a no reply blogger, and until last Tuesday, I was fine. What do I do?

  5. Thank you so much! I didn't even realize. BTW. I'm new to your blog and look forward to spending more time reading your inspiring posts. Your blog header is so pretty and unique.!
    Blessings to you,


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. They truly do brighten my day.
