Proper blogging

It seems that I have not been blogging properly.  Apparently I don't reply to comments correctly.  I have managed to sort out my settings in my profile so that I am not a "no reply" blogger, but I have been replying to comments "in the comments" not via e-mail.

Apparently this is "not the way to do it" (use your best Mr Punch voice here!).

I am told that being a "no reply" blogger is a bad thing and being a "not a no reply blogger" that doesn't reply properly isn't good either.  I have no idea if any of this is true or not, but there you go.  I'm just letting you know what I have been told.

So in case I have been doing it wrongly, apologies if you did not know that I had read, published and replied to your lovely comments.  Go back, have a look, I did reply!  I said nice things and I appreciated the nice things that you said too.

In future, I promise, I will do my best to reply properly, and if you comment and don't get a reply back from me in your inbox, go and check your comment on my blog - 'cause the reply will be there.  Promise.

Here is a bunch of flowers to say sorry!

Linda - I will try the bread soon!

I love all your comments and watching the number of views from all around the world going up and I am very thankful to you too.



  1. Hi Amy...
    I always come back to see if there is a response...
    I always write a reply on my blog...
    I think that is the part I like the best about blogging...getting to know people better...
    I don't think it really matters what you do...
    To each his own!!

    Thanks for plugging me on your blog...
    I still have not mastered the art of "cut & paste"...and I am envious of anyone who can!!!

    Keep up the good work...and...oh yeah...
    Thanks for the flowers!!! hahaha!

    Linda :o)

    1. Hi Linda

      Thanks for the comment again - you are my number one top commenter I think!

      I tried to you reply to you in my e-mail, guess what, the reply comment didn't appear here. Ha. I will stick with my previous method, I know that works.

      Glad you liked the flowers!


  2. Hi Amy. Thanks for you lovely comment on my blog. I have tried repeatedly to change my "no-reply" setting to no avail and have given up worrying about it now. For time reasons I don't reply to comments but I always try to visit the other blog to say hello instead. Getting to know other bloggers is the joy of blogging! But as Linda says, each to their own.

    1. Hi Gillian

      Thank you for your comment, I have decided that if lovely and wonderful bloggers like you and Linda reply "in the comments" that is going to be me too! So, here I am replying!

      Thanks also for visiting me here.


  3. Hi Amy, thanks for writing this post, I never understand the 'no reply' thing either. I am like you and just reply in the comments, then if people want to stop by again, they can read if I have replied. I know quite a few people do the same, so I always pop back to their blog to see if they have replied. It seems weird to leave them with no comments, so that's why I always like to say something back! I really like your blog, so I am now following to get regular updates! Hope you don't mind. :)

    1. Hi Sarah, Thanks for visiting my blog and of course I don't mind you getting updates. That is one of the nice things about blogland isn't it, getting those e-mails with updates of what your bloggy companions are up to! I will pay a visit to your blog and leave you a comment so you know I have visited!



Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit and for leaving a comment, I love hearing what you have to say and I read all of your messages.

All comments are moderated, so it might take a little while for your comment to appear, but it will once I have read it!

Thank you again for visiting!
