Let's Chat

Guys, I have a problem.

I love getting comments from you.  It makes blogging more fun.

I also love RESPONDING to comments, especially when someone says something very helpful or poignant or has a question (such as where did you buy your maternity leggings?).  

But here's the thing...a huge majority of you show up in my inbox like this                                        "" and I can't respond to you personally.

This makes me sad.  Especially when someone has a question that I'd love to answer but don't necessarily want to design a blog post around TO answer.

So, let's chat!  Everyone change your settings like this (stolen verbatim from Happy Hopefuls):

  • When on blogger, in the upper right hand corner, there is your picture and your name of your google account.
  • Click on this drop down menu.
  • Choose "Blogger Profile".
  • Once in your "Blogger Profile", choose the "Edit Profile" button, which will bring up another screen for editing.
  • The second option down, is "Show email address" and you'll need to check this box.
  • Down further, there is a box that says "Email Address" and next to it says, "Changing this does not change the e-mail address you use to sign-in."  Here you may pick a different email address to have your comment responses sent to, if you don't want it to be your personal email and maybe your blog specific email address.
  • Once you have this all set, save your settings.

From here on, when you leave a comment, you'll also be able to receive a response... especially when you leave a question in the comments.

Got that?

Everyone doing it?


Can't wait to see more personal emails from y'all and looking forward to chatting with some of you more personally!
