Replying To Comments

I've mentioned this pet peeve before and I'm still irritated.  Blogger doesn't appear to have the option to ask a commenter for their email address, which is not published.  As a result, I'm not able to reply unless I, personally, already have your email address .  I certainly understand that you may not want to see your email in the comments.

I've toyed with the idea of changing to another blogging program, but to be honest, it would be a lot of work and I'd rather be knitting.

So.... I have a suggestion.  I'm going to start a little list that I'll keep on my computer.  It will have names and/or screen names, along with the associated email address.  This way, if I have something to say, I can write back to you.  If you want to leave a comment, or think you might comment in the future, why not send your contact information to me privately.  You can email it to me at: 

joanne  @  jconklin  .  com  (remove the spaces). 

I promise you, your email will be used only for this reason and won't be shared.  By the way, if you leave me a link that begins with "https://", I'm not able to access it.

I've checked some Blogger message boards and this seems to be a common complaint.  Perhaps Blogger will listen.  In the meantime, this is the only solution that I can think of that will keep your email private and allow me to respond.

Thanks everybody.

Hi - just wanted to let you know that I respond to commenters on my blog by doing another comment at the same post. Of course, if it's meant to be a private message, I put my e-mail address on the blog spelled out as you just did. But then, you are an intelligent person and probably already knew that but it wasn't working for you. :)
