Several many of you like to enter giveaways or ask questions…but I can’t get ahold of you to reply to your comment. There are several of you who have actually won a giveaway that I’ve held, but because you didn’t leave a comment, someone else won some lovely prizes.

Sad, but true.

You do not need to have a blog in order to have a blogger profile. Your profile can include two simple things ~ your first name and an email address.

If you have either a Gmail or hotmail email account, the set up is SUPER easy and quick {and if you don’t have a Gmail account, it is really easy to create one of those too!}. Go to the Blogger home page {blogger.com} and log in using your Gmail/hotmail email address and password. You will see a page that looks like this:


Click on the Edit Profile link and look for the part of the Profile page that says ‘Email Address’. You can change this email address to ANY email address that you would like to ~ meaning the one that you use on a daily basis {yahoo, aol, etc…}.


Scroll up the page just a little bit and make sure that these two boxes are checked {the ‘share my profile’ and ‘show my email address’}.


SAVE your changes!!

This is how your profile will look to others when they click on your name if you leave a comment on their blog.


Now, whenever you leave a comment asking a question, your email address will be directly linked to that comment for only the blog owner to see so they can quickly reply to you!

On a side note, I have tried installing Disqus on my blog in the past, but had some major issues and got a little burned out trying to get it figured out. I love the ‘interactive’ feature that it allows in the comments and really hope that someday I can get it working..but that’s a project for another day!
