You will save thousands of us bloggers, many, many, many hours of blogging time! Not to mention thousands in therapy bills!

NO REPLY AT BLOGGER DOT COM
How I hate seeing this!! First of all, I can't tell you how many times I have responded to comments from my email, because truly, some of the comments make me laugh so hard I snort, and then hit send only to realize that my email will be floating in never never land for eternity.
Where do these emails go?? Seriously. Where do they go??
I am not the type of gal who is going to respond to a comment in the post. I'm just not. I like to streamline. I like to hit reply on my email and then respond and hit send. Instead, I go to the respective blog to comment...which I do anyway...and then comment on the post they have written, thus not giving me an opportunity to respond to the numerous fabulous and hysterical comments I receive.
PEOPLE THIS MUST STOP! I am sure the blogger fairies are tired of trying to catch all my emails that are sent out there with no home!! So, I am going to teach you all how to change this, and I am going to do it in a way that there will be no more excuses!!
1. Go to your Dashboard on Blogger dot com.
2. Hit your edit profile, right next to your picture, avatar or whatever else you have showing.
3. Scroll down to the line that says : Show my email address and CHECK THE BOX.
4. Hit save.
Now, for those of you who do not want a regular email address to show, go to Gmail, Yahoo or any other number of places and get a FREE, yes FREE, email account and set it up.
I would so like to respond to the funniness that is sent my way.
I have attempted to tute you all on how to change this, and apparently, although many of you said you would change it, some of you didn't listen the first time. I have enough issues spelling "verification", much less typing in those dang words after I leave a comment.
I have thought of boycotting those that refuse to change the word verification and have it turned off, but I love all of you too much and the guilt that my mother instilled in me at such a young tender age would eat me alive and I would no longer be able to function and blog, and that would not do, now would it??
The answer....TURN OFF THE WORD VERIFICATION!
1. Go to your Dashboard at blogger dot com.
2. Click on Settings, which is under the name of your blog.
3. Click on Comments, which is on the top of the page.
4. Scroll down until you see this: Show word verification for comments?
5. Click the box that says NO.
6. Click Save settings at the bottom of the page. Please do not leave this page until you have saved settings.
Now, just an FYI...you do NOT get more spam if you do not have word verification. Word verification is a torture device that some moron thought up to annoy and irritate all bloggers.
Thank you all for your immediate attention to both the above matters. And if this pisses you off, please note my disclaimer on top. For those of you that want to thank me, ass kissing works nicely.
