    I wasn’t able to find a Comment Email Responder for Blogger, which is not to say that it doesn’t exist. (BTW, the last email you sent me from that system had no sender name. The from: field was blank. Kind of weird. :0 )

    Great tip about CommentLuv. I’ve noticed it here and on other blogs, but never thought about seeking out blogs that use it!

    Comments rock…I think you are right…in order to get comments you have to give. All about giving in order to receive.

    I just found your blog yesterday (I think while I was on Org Junkie looking at menus) and I want you to know the information I have found on your blog has helped me more in the last two days that I could ever imagine.

    How awesome that you are so willing to share this info and help others prosper as well.

    I’ve been posting meal plans on Org Junkie for a few months now and knew that was getting me traffic, but I just started following your Five Blogging Rules yesterday and I have more comments already!

    You’ve got this figured out. Thank you so much!

    Thanks so much for this Crystal!! I am so glad that my little tid-bits is helping someone. :-)

    Thanks for this post. I am fairly new to blogging and am learning the etiquette and rules of having a successful blog. I respond when people post to my blog in the comments but it never occurred to me to email them. From now on I will do that 😀 Thanks for helping out this newbie 😀

    I’ve searched for a Comment Email Responder for Blogger too to no avail. Most threads I’ve followed all claim that there isn’t one yet. :(

  8. Heather @ Marine Corps Nomads says

    No luck on the email responder for blogger as of yet. It’s something that I’d really like to have. I try to respond to comments, but I’ve found that many people do not have their email address enable, so I’m unable to respond via email.

    Thanks for the great information!

    I really appreciate you sharing all your tips with everyone. I love the articles you post about improving our blogs. Comments are very important and I love when people stop by and leave them. I always make sure to reply to their comments too! Thanks again :)

    Oh yeah, emailing works wonders sometimes! I leave comments but I never click the “email me follow up comments” button. So, unless the person emails me I just might not be back.

    I got an email the other day that just said, “your comment has been responded to” with a link. It felt very impersonal, but I clicked the link to see what someone had said to me! LOL!

  11. Kelli says

    Oh Badger Momma! I am so sorry to hear that Blogger doesn’t have it yet. :-( Another reason I am so glad I moved to Word Press. LOL!

  12. Kelli says

    Heather, yeah I noticed the same thing before I moved (not being able to respond to comment). People simply HAVE to get that email put into their Blogger account.

    Hmmm guess I need to run with that concept for a Blogging Basic posts. LOL! Thanks! (Scribbling it down in my BBB.)

  13. Kelli says

    Thanks so much Ellen! I can not respond to every comment that comes through, but I do try to respond to all non-contest comments. :-) If I responded to contest comments, I would be here all day. ROTFL! :-)

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  16. Microsoft Sidewinder says

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  17. Sony LiveView says

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
