Need Help

Okay folks, I need your help. I have been using Haloscan for comments. That program emailed me a link with your email so I could respond. Now they are discontinuing it. So I have removed Haloscan and gone back to the standard Blogger comment system. BUT, this does not appear to send me an email with the commenter's email. Blogger sends me an email with the comment, but that's it. DO NOT LIKE! I want an email with your email address so I can answer you. I don't want to answer in the comments on the blog. What do you use?

I have the same problem that you are now having. I always wondered how you were responding by email.

I use Typepad, which provides the email addresses. It used to be formatted better (i.e., you could just hit reply to an email that contained the comment) but now you have to type in the email yourself as the reply to address is now Typepad. Do not like. But it's better than Blogger.

If you don't want to go to a pay-to-blog service, you could do what I've seen on other Google/Blogger blogs and request email addresses in the comment interface. An example of a blog like this is http://crimsonpurl.blogspot.com/. You'll see what I mean if you click into her comment section. I'm not sure how she modified Blogger to put that note in about leaving an email address, though.

I use WordPress and love it but I've heard that Typepad is good too!

This was one of the reasons I went to WordPress.
