You know when you comment to a blog, and you hope that the blogger will respond?
Or, you ask a question, and need or want the blogger to respond?
I do that. I comment to blogs when I really like something and I have the time to write a comment. Sometimes, it’s just a quick few words like “I love it!”. Sometimes it’s more involved.
Regardless, it’s always nice when the blogger replies.
As a blogger, I LOVE to receive comments. All comments.
They make my day. I eat them like candy.
I’m pretty good about responding, too … even if it’s just a simple “thank you”.
You didn’t know that, though …. because I assumed (incorrectly as it turns out) that the WordPress programming language would let you know via email that I had responded.
No, you would have had to check the box “Notify me of follow-up comments by email” to know that I responded.
Stupid me. I thought that box meant you wanted to receive comments from others, not comments from me!
So insert apology here.
I sincerely apologize. I truly, truly do.
It won’t happen again. Because I fixed it with a simple plug-in.
If you have a WordPress blog like I do, you might want to know about it.
It’s a very easy fix. The plug-in, Comment Email Reply simply and straightforwardly notifies any commenter if someone (and that includes you) replies to their comment.
That means that you no longer have to check the box if you want to know if I replied.
(You will need to check the box if you want to receive all replies, including mine.)
Anyway, regarding the plugin: trust me. I downloaded it. I tested it. It works!
