Blogger Blogging Revelations

Many of you will probably laugh at these points *blushes*, I'm not sure, but should it ever be useful to anyone (most probably me in the near future, as a reminder :S) here are some more of the things that I found in the so far so short blogging path of mine which I found quite interesting anyway! :)


  1. We can put links in the comment sections!
    Who knew?! Well I didn't! :D The ones that I know work perfectly are in Blogger and Disqus comments.
    To add links, copy and paste the following to our comments:

    <a href
    ="http://www.yourblog.com/">My Blog</a>
    Just replace the your blog and my blog with your blog address and preferred text! :))

  2. We can reply comments directly through emails!
    Yep, I din't know this until perhaps mid December last year! Previously I thought comments can only be done through the comment section, haha, oh yes, such a smart cookie I am.
    Well, but oh hey, I actually find this quite nice because:
    a. it can be more personal,
    b. we don't have to go back to the post for the comment,
    c. we don't have to tick that 'Notify Me for Further Responses' box which can sometimes come with literally ALL other responses for that post! :S


  3. All those unless we are no-reply blogger.
    Yep, apparently there is such a thing too as a no-reply blogger. :S Which means our comments will have a reply address of noreply-comment@blogger.com, and if we try to reply to this (apparently we can, no bouncing back and such, eep!), but Godzilla knows where it will be sent, definitely not to us! :S
    I accidentally set mine not as a no-reply blogger when I first set up this blog without knowing what it does, and I didn't realise it until I read about it in another blog. :S Apparently it has something to do with linked Google Plus profile as well. Personally I think being a no-reply blogger has its own perks as in if we want to keep our email address private even after leaving comments. But if you want to check whether you are a no-reply blogger or not and how to set to not a no-reply, here are some quick Google searches! :D
  4. There is such thing as a blogger button which we can swap with each other.
    This might seem quite obvious, but I never noticed them until very recently. :S Here's how we can insert our own blog buttons, and some simple image editing for it.
  5. Lastly, I feel blogging is more about socialising, really.
    It's like finding ourselves in a community in which little by little we start to meet more and more new people and start to think what we can bring for the community, because everyone is contributing something wonderful. I think that is the most endearing part of it too, though, meeting more people while at the same time learning more about ourselves. :)

So there are mine, did you have any... at all?? Or was it just me who got all too excited? :D


In another note, I accidentally deleted the original finished draft for this post! I blame the lagged browser. Hahaha, oh dearrrrr, made me quite panicky for a bit (---I'm clearly not fully sane yet :S)! So for our future references and prevention, here is another blog which outlines how to deal with accidentally deleted blog post. I would also like to add that I noticed the maximum for undo is 25 times. :) I couldn't find mine, so I completely rewrote this post, whoa!


Virtual, blogger hugs and Happy Friday! :D

    1. Haha, so true! Basically it's just to tick or not to tick that 'show my email address' in Blogger profile edit page, if we think about it. :S

      Cheers,
