Seeing Red

I have to say something about a problem that I'm having. I'm not the only one.
This is for all the wonderful folks who follow my blog and leave me comments.
Quite often I want to respond to your comments. I do this a lot.
I don't do this on my comment page because I don't think that most of you come back to the comments after you have written them. I see this done all the time but I like to be more personal. I like to respond to just you.
But, for some reason ( mine was changed magically by Blogger too) I go to write a reply to your comment on my email and I can't. Your return address is <norply-comment@blogger.com>. This means that I can't REPLY to your comment. 
So, because I'm old and easily irritated these days, I'm going to give you a link that will tell you what this scourge is and how you can remedy the situation. If not, then I can't answer any of your questions or tell you how much I appreciate your comments, or talk about something personal that we don't want the world to know about. This makes me sad, because I like to respond to you and have a dialog with you.
So, here is the link that explains what to do and why.
(This blogger also has a lovely and interesting blog .)
Please go into your settings and change the dreaded <norply-comment> to YOUR email address so that your favorite blog authors can respond to you.
There.... I feel better now. I'm not seeing red anymore.
here's my latest reply to who I have missed. She has been infected by the "norply" address bug and I can't reply to her on my comment email. So Maggie, here is my reply to you....

"Hi Maggie,
No, you didn't get carried away with your comment. Please don't ever feel this way. I love all comments. I appreciate your advice and it makes me feel good to know that others get themselves into jams like I do. I accept all  advice and I listen.
I agree that if I get the bed cleaned off I will feel better.
Thanks for your comment.
Good to hear from you.
Hope all is well.



  1. hey my email is in there...smiles.

  2. Connie - I wish I knew. I was replying (or thought I was) to people's comments all the time, and didn't even realize they weren't ever receiving them - that's how stupid I am. So, I guess everybody thought I was rude or never cared, which is most certainly not the case. Now I just try to leave a comment on my own blog and hope that maybe they will see it. That's a long shot. Whatever. I give up. I hope you find out some info we can BOTH use!

  3. I am so dumb I have no idea what you are trying to tell us. Whatever it is causing you a problem, trust it gets resolved. So far, I have not had a problem with that.

  4. I check the site you posted and I checked the box in my profile for my e-mail adress. I hope this will allow people to e-mail me. Thank you for this information. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  5. Connie, I think we are good and you have my gmail. All is good with the world.
    xo, Cheryl

  6. Okie Dokie! Checked the box. Everything should be working now...I hope!

  7. done and done. I hope Maggie reads this as I have tried to respond to her several times too...sweet dreams lady.

  8. i think i fuond the right thing and put my email in it... if i did I am sure I will get an email telling me i got it fixed!
    Love hugs grits and ear scratches!

  9. Okey dokey...I checked mine and the correct email address is there!! I just need to say something profound to see if your reply works.

    I got nada right now LOL
