Commenting on Blogs: A Plea from Me to YOU

I hate to be so demanding. I really do. But I have something I'd like to ask you to do. Not just for me... but for you, too. Will you please (pretty please?) add an email account to your blogger profile? If you don't want your real email address to be known, you can make a new email account with Yahoo or MSN or Google that just has your blogging handle as the account name.

And then skip back over to Blogger to edit your profile. Just add your email in the appropriate box and make sure that the little box is checked next to the words "Show my email address."

I love all the comments and you wonderful, amazing people who share with me every day. And I want to write a note back to each of you when I can or I want to explain further or want to know more.... Because sometimes I think the conversation could really go somewhere if it had time to develop and blossom.

I am throwing in the towel trying to answer comments in my comment section and this time I really mean it. Please enable your email so I can talk to you!!

And because I know I am optimistic and maybe just a little naive in hoping you will do this.... I give you a gift: Cornify Just keep hitting that button until you feel the love and come up with your new email name. :)


P.S. As an added bonus..... if you add an email address that I can reply to with you comment: You get an award! The infinitely kind and loving Liz, over at Eternal Lizdom awarded me with the sisterhood award last week. She totally re-worked the rules of the meme and even though I LOVE what she did with it (click that link and read her post), I am reworking them again. :) Why? Because it's my prerogative (insert Bobby Brown riff here), that's why.


  1. oh! oh! oh! lookie lookie! Rainbows and unicorns! :) I already have a unicorn on my blog, though! It's my code, you can even copy and paste it onto your blog! Hey! Why haven't you done that yet, huh huh huh?

    You still don't feel bad that I've become a smoker because are you???

    Okay so email me and let me know how guilty you really are...

    to email me, all you gotta do is click on my blog, then click on the "Dear Charity" link on my sidebar! Simple! :) :)

  2. I've done it although I use Wordpress and leave comments under that profile.

  3. Here I keep telling my daughters that life isn't always rainbows and unicorns and look at this I have been proved wrong!

  4. Don't know if you heard, but Braja has been in a serious car accident. Go over to my blog: for more info.

  5. Do I get extra points for already having done this without you asking?

  6. I'm not sure I get the whole email response thing. . .I like getting those emails, but how does it differ from those who respond in the comment section?

    I'm curious.. .

  7. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do this. In E-mails, or in comments, or BOTH?!

    I have pretties all OVER my screen right now! Yaaaaay!

  8. Amen sister... I LOVE being able to reply to people instead of having to comment on a blog post of theirs that has NOTHING to do with their comment to me...

    I am a PRO email blogger!!

  9. I worship you.

    Next can you tackle that whole word verification thing.

    Make. It. Stop.

    (off to check in on Braja)

  10. You have something waiting for you over at my blog :)

  11. We already chat my Island friend. I really don't need a sisterhood button. LOL Maybe a Willy T Tat?

  12. Oh My Hell. I agree. I need to do this same post on my blog. It drives me crazy when I can't hit reply.

    Come on folks!

  13. oh GAWD I am so with you.... I have no way of responding to commenters that don't include an email.

  14. You helped me remember to look and make sure mine was listed - thanks!

  15. but if I do that and then you never email me, I'll feel like we met in a bar, you asked for my number and you never called and then I have to talk to my bar tender friend to find out that you just aren't that into me... then I would be forced to eat an entire gallon of icecream while I watched an old 80's movie or something........

  16. I thought mine always came up.

    If not: mine is:



  17. I just found your blog! I am now following, yay!

  18. haha! I just did this on SITS spring fling day - it got to be such a hassle to NOT have my e-mail out there. Apparently Word Varification bothers some people A LOT too... are you one those? ;)


Thoughts appreciated. Advice welcome. Douche-baggery scoffed at then deleted.
