Along with all this new traffic, I'm also getting many new commenters. While this is very exciting and fun, it's also frustrating because I like to respond individually to each comment via email, and so, so, so many of you new commenters do not have your email hooked up to your blogger profile.
[Actually, many of you old commenters don't either, but I've been able to track down your emails through your blogs, or facebook, or some of you are my old friends or family members so I already have your email address -- but that doesn't excuse you from following this tutorial and fixing it now].
So when I go to reply to your very nice comment to answer your very kind questions, it looks like this:
See? That <email@example.com> means your email address is not hooked up to the blogger profile you're using to comment, and that means I can't reply. So, would you be so kind as to check your blogger profile right now and see if your email address is viewable? It literally takes five seconds.
Just go to your blogger profile and click the Edit Profile button:
Then click the little box that says "Show my email address."
And that's it! Now we can be friends and I don't have to hunt down your email address, or type it in myself, or just let your very nice comment/question float around in the void forever.
