Tutorial: No-Reply Blogger

Blogger Tutorial: How NOT to be a no-reply blogger. If you're a no-reply blogger, this means that the blog owner cannot easily reply to your comments via email.  Now that's no fun at all!
 
I've noticed on face book recently that people are talking about "no-reply bloggers". Is that you?

I sure hope not! It seems to happen to everyone at some point and I've certainly found myself in this situation.

In case you're not sure what a no-reply blogger is .... when you leave a comment on someone's blog, the blog owner receives an email with your lovely comment. If you're a no-reply blogger, they can't reply to you.

How sad is that?
 
Not sure whether or not you're a no-reply blogger? Just leave a comment on your own blog. When you receive your email click on reply to try and answer yourself. 

If "noreply-comment@blogger.com" pops up in the address then you know you have a problem.

Before you go and fix things you need to know there are separate instructions for bloggers who are on google plus and those who aren't.

If you're on google plus then visit Fluster Buster for her fabulous tutorial.

If you're not, then pop on over to Sue's blog, Sullivan and Murphy. She's got lots of pictures to help you out.

Blogger Tutorial: How to Add a Sidebar Image without a Title. Blogger won't let you save a gadget without giving it a title name. This is a quick 'n easy hack to get around that.
 
Have you noticed that recently it's seemingly impossible to add a sidebar image without putting in a title?

It was driving me crazy!!

I've noticed some bloggers typing in a period just to have a placeholder there, but that doesn't look very good.

Sometimes you just don't want to have a title, but if you don't put one in you get this funky message from Blogger:

Fortunately, the solution is super simple!  Ever heard of this term?

Non-Breaking Space
This is a common character used in HTML and it looks like this:

 

All you have to do is type   in place of the title and voila! you can now post your image with NO title.

Why Does This Work?
All you've added is a space, but happily Blogger reads it as text, so you're good to go.
