Allow Comment Posting Through Email

If you're like me, you moderate comments that are being posted to your blog. How many times have you needed to reply to a comment, after you moderated and published it, but just didn't feel like making the effort.
  • Open the post in question.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the post and the comments (or open the commenting screen / window).
  • Enter a reply in that little tiny box.
  • Hit "Post Comment".
  • Wait to see if the comment posts, or do you again see
    Your reply could not be processed.
You're in your email program, why can't you post a reply, to a comment just published, through email?
  • Hit "Reply".
  • Compose your reply.
  • Hit "Send".
  • Get on with life.

Tell Blogger to allow us to post replies to comments through email, as we moderate through email.

Maybe Blogger thinks that some email not intended to be public would get confused with public comments?

Re: How many times have you needed to reply to a comment, but just didn't feel like making the effort.
Wow - never. I'd love to have that problem!

That's an interesting idea, Susan.

How do you confuse private email with a blog comment? Better yet, how would a private email to you get posted to your blog as a comment, by you hitting "Reply"?

Hmmm ... if I had to guess I'd say I probably have no idea what you were talking about in the first place. Right?
I thought it was that I would post comments to a blog by emailing the blogger rather than this way. But you mean only that the blogger could reply to me by email.
I really only understand about half of what I read on your blog, but ... gotta start somewhere.

Good point, Susan. I don't always write as coherently as I'd like, though with folks like you being patient and persistent with me, I hope to improve.

BTW, what is "sdsup" - an acronym, part of your name, or a question? Just curious...
Found the information worthy as I had no idea of posting a comment on the blog. Thanks for giving such a great idea with us.

Its really an innovative idea. I agree with the majority of it, it seems to make sense. Keep blogging.

Adding A Link To Your Blog Post

Occasionally, you see a very odd, cryptic complaint I just added a link in my blog, but the link vanished! No, it wasn't your imagination.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.
