A little random...

There are probably 4 other, more substantive things I could/should blog about right now, but I just thought I'd do something a little lighter. And helpful. Because we all love helpful things, right?

I know, I know, I harp about this ALL the time. But I just love it when you all have a reply-to email address with your comments. Why? Because, more often than not, I like to reply to them. I know, I don't always, but I do often.

Anyway, most BBs I know, when the subject comes up, say they don't have a reply-to address done because they just don't know how. And to be sure, it's not like it's just clicking a button. No, Blogger wouldn't make it that simple!

However, it is pretty easy.
  1. Go to your Dashboard
  2. Select "Edit Profile"
  3. Make sure the "show my email address" box is checked
  4. Select "Save Profile" at the bottom of the page
And presto! You have a reply-to email address :) Making me and many, many other BBs very excited.

In other news....

SoldierMan begins field training this evening. So all this week and next week he will be in the field. Which means much less communication than we have gotten used to. Hopefully I will be motivated to use that time to be more productive and social than I was. I owe some people some movie nights.

The snow storm came and went last night. It's all basically melted around here, but didn't melt early enough to allow me to go to church this morning. So I did the whole "watch church online" thing for the first time ever. I think it's a very handy substitute, but I can definitely see the danger of making that a habit. Church isn't meant to be virtual. But that's a rant for another day. ;)

How was y'all's weekend?


  1. Thanks for the tip about the reply-to email setting. I just did it. Bummer that you won't have as much communication with SoldierMan. I'm sure you'll stay busy though. Hope you're having a great weekend!

  2. I just did the reply-to email! :) I hope you are able to keep busy while SoldierMan is in the field! :)

  3. Ok, so I have been wondering... what does BB stand for?

  4. Yes, I really get annoyed when I see a comment I want to respond to but can't. Most people just don't know how to change it.

  5. It took me forever to figure out how to set up the reply!! You would think blogger could make it a tad bit more simple!!

    We had the snowstorm too. It is slowly melting away and I hope that is the last of it until next winter.

  6. I know what you mean! I get bummed out when I want to reply to a comment and then I see that I cant!

  7. Thanks for the tip! I have a Blackberry too and just set up my email address. Good idea!

  8. Hahaha I don't think I've ever watched Church online lol... When I can't make it to church I watch it on the many T.v stationes that ahve it playing.. You are to funny.Yes I hate it as well when I can't reply to someone because they don't have there E-mail box checked lol..

    Oh and about my weekend I'll probrable go to the beach before the oil spill reached Panama City. So I can get my Tan on lol...Other then that nothing really. I hope you have a GREAT weekend..

  9. What a helpful tip! I read this post tonight because I was entering your giveaway. And I've already gotten a personal email from another blogger in response to a comment I left on her site today -- that wouldn't have been possible if I didn't know this trick. Thanks!

  10. ok, i think i'm just dumb in this area. i have done what you wrote above but how do i then reply. meaning, how do i reply? where do i go? HELP! lol


I was nice and didn't turn on word verifications. Please reciprocate by having your reply-to email set and not posting anonymously.
