Apparently I can’t reply to your comments unless you have a Blogger profile with your email address enabled. I Googled and found a lot of into about that. You can read about it here, for instance. And what if you have no Blogger profile? Well, then I can’t reply at all, unless I do a public reply in the form of a comment on the blog post. Poo! Who really checks there for an answer to their question? How can I tell you how glad I was to hear from you? This, in my opinion, is a HUGE Blogger flaw!
What about all my email subscribers who like to send me a response in an email by clicking “reply”? I have now enabled my email address in my profile. Will I still be firstname.lastname@example.org? It’s all very frustrating, and that was certainly not in the plans when I made this move.
I’ve been asked why I moved to a new blog at all. Well, a fresh start, for one thing. A new name, new direction. Design flexibility. Free, as opposed to $14.95 per month.
I’ll be working on solutions.
Thank you so much for your patience and for all of you wonderful friends who have already made the move with me. Welcome to every new reader who stops by. We’ll get through this. Somehow.
