Help please!

Keeping busy here -- I'll do a real post in the next day or so. But meanwhile, I have a problem/question: Why, (all of a sudden, I think, or has it been this way for a while?) when I try to leave a comment anywhere, am I not showing up??? Even when I leave a test comment to myself, it comes to me as no reply and then disappears.

I've had everything I know of set as 'public', had my email address in my profile, etc, for YEARS ... and I haven't changed any settings at all. What am I missing or doing wrong? Has Blogger changed something that I'm not aware of? How can I get myself back to my regular email reply status? Where are my comments and replies going??

And meanwhile, I apologize for being "no reply"! I didn't realize I was set that way, and I can't find a way to fix it. My comments and replies are disappearing into cyberspace! :(

Jeanne, you should be able to change the no-reply thing in your blogger profile (go to your dashboard, click "edit profile" on the left side of the screen, and make sure that "show my email address" is checked)

Seems to me I had a comment from you not TOO long ago... maybe they're just not showing up right away?

Sometimes blogger does that - but eventually they will show up - usually. Hope it clears up for you.

One time blogger deleted EVERY photo out of several years of my blog - and then said they could do nothing about it - and then one day they just appeared again. Weird stuff.

Oh Jeanne, I have no answers, but agree with Julie. Blogger seems to have odd glitches now & then. I use Windows Live Writer now to publish my posts, as I have found it easier, but as to comments... no tips.
I wish you a Joyous 2010, & hope all goes well for you & yours.XX

I was fiddling around with my settings one day and accidently set mine to "moderate comments." Several days later I found them all in my email spam. Your problem has to be a blogger glitch. I think they like playing with our heads! :)

I was going to mention on my blog recently that their "no-reply" glitch had been fixed, because I had the same problem - my comments were coming up "no reply". But it may be fixed for me and not you. If you made the appropriate "fixes" and it still doesn't work, it's Blogger, not you. It seems to fix itself, eventually.
