One Way Conversations Are Awkward!

Have you ever had a conversation with someone who won't keep the conversation going.  They just say "yes" or "no", or worse, just nod their head?  It's awkward.  When someone leaves me a comment that I can't reply to because they are a no reply blogger, it's like that in reverse.  It leaves me looking like that person who won't keep the conversation going.

Most people don't even realize they are a no reply blogger.  Blogger needs to fix this mess.  Many people changed their profile to Google+, and when they did that, became no reply bloggers because that is the default setting.  They don't even know it.

There is a way to fix it however.  There are two methods based on if you have a regular Blogger profile or a Google+ profile.  Rather than reinvent the wheel, I will send you to Robin at Fluster Buster.  She has an excellent tutorial on how to fix it.  Then you need to monitor it regularly, because it sounds like any changes made in Google+ reset it back to no reply.  Until Google decides to get their act together and fix this, we have to monitor it ourselves.

I really hate one way conversations, and want to reply to your comments.  Take a minute and go read Robin's post, then make the change...cause I like ya...and I don't want to be the silent conversationalist :(

I will be putting a link to this post in all my future party posts too.  Bloggers unite!  Let's tear down this glass wall that keeps us from conversing with one another!


  1. Thank you for letting me know that I was (still am...)no reply blogger.I had no idea!
    I'll try to fix it today:)

  2. I am trying to let people know that they are No Reply commentors. You are right- a lot of people don't even know it- xo Diana

  3. I agree, I feel weird when I can't answer... Sometimes to people I could answer to before!

  4. So funny! I read this post and started looking around for the "like" button! LOL!

  5. UGH - mine keeps reverting to no-reply every couple of weeks. Thank you for pointing it out to me! I *think* I've fixed it, for now! :) Julia

  6. I agree with you. Most of the time, all of us face this situation when we are talking to someone and they just respond yes or no. This is such an irritating situation. I mostly interact with shipping companies; mostly their receptionists do the same, but recently I was talking with CFIPAK Shipping companies in karachi; they are too good and respond in a polite way. This was my interesting interaction with them, and I suggest all of you avail of their service.


Thank you for taking time to leave me a comment. They make my day!
