Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

No Reply Bloggers


I have my blogger "inner workings" set to send me an e-mail every time someone leaves a comment on my blog.

I LOVE this little feature for SOOOOOO many reasons - - - the first being I know right away where to go look for the comments, yes I'm THAT kinda gal that likes to read them RIGHT ON MY BLOG. The SECOND being that it is super easy to RESPOND to the commenter from the e-mail.

Well - - - SOMETIMES it is super easy. It's super easy if the commenter's e-mail has their reply e-mail address on it.

Many do not, and instead it says "no reply comment."

GRRRRRRRR - - - I HATE that 'cause then I can't TALK to you!!!!

I Googled for the graphic on this post and while doing so, I stumbled onto this WONDERFUL blog post at Pleasant Home where she explains EXACTLY how to make sure you aren't a No Reply. So go here please - - - go right now - - - and make sure you AREN'T a no reply blogger 'cause I want to TALK to you!!!!

Oh - - - and if you're a regular here, and you get e-mail answers from me about your comments on my blog, then chances are you AREN'T a no reply blogger unless of course you've sent me your e-mail and I've squirreled it away in my files - - - -

Remember, I'm pullin' for ya - - - we're all in this together! (Thanks for the line, Red Green.)

Keri said...

Maybe I WANT to be a no-reply to YOU!

I love getting an email back from you after I've left you a witty tome! It makes me feel connected to you and I feel the same way about 'non-reply'. I won't stalk anybody who leaves an email, but will simply thank you for coming by for a visit!
LOVE that shirt, Keetha. It applies to SOOOOO many things!

Hugs girl,

For once I did something right, I'm not a no-reply blogger...that was bad English.

I was one and didn't know a thing about it, I was glad someone pointed it out to me. I don't always respond that way but it sure is a nice feature and really helps to get to know people better. Good post, especially for those new to blogging!

ain't for city gals said...

I am one of those no-reply blogger...I don't know...I just don't have any more time to spend on the computer than what I do already...after I get to know a blogger a little better we exchange e-mail addresses if we feel that we have a connection..most of the people on my blog roll have it

Sometimes I will leave a reply right in the comments if it is important to the conversation so everyone can see it.
No reply? Then please don't ask me a question.

Keetha Broyles said...

Dear "Ain't"

I DON'T HAVE YOUR E-MAIL, does that mean we have no connection??????

Very sad face :-(

I can't find my blog said...

Amen, sister!

Keep your stick on the ice! Oh I love that you quoted Red Green. :)

j said...

I'm SO glad that we have an email connection too. You are a treasured friend Keetha. I love hearing from you!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It's one of my pet peeves. I have a button on my blog: Can't Reply to No-reply!

Kathleen said...

I agree!

I was just thinking about this the other day - I have no clue whether I'm a no-reply girl or not?! I'm soooo not a techie. I'm going to play on her page now and see what to do about this! Oh, and replying to your comment earlier, my business as of now is only Euro antiques. I'm looking into doing Euro shopping tours in the future...we'll see! -diane said...

Thank you dear, I believe....the issue has been taken care of. Hoppy Easter!

Keri said...

I think I fixed mine!
