- putting away anything that was likely to blow away
- making sure the animals were safely snuggled up and warm
- weighted down the trampoline with a huge rugby tackling bag
- kept our fingers crossed that all the trees in the garden would survive
I think we were lucky as all the trees are still standing and other than a garden full of leaves (Tomas and I will be out there later with a rake each!) we haven't had any damage.
We were supposed to meet up with friends yesterday but thought it would be safer to stay indoors as many of the roads were blocked with fallen trees and I just didn't want to drive in the strong winds. So it was a day of games, (computer ones and board ones), jigsaws, colouring and for Rachel revision!!
Today is one of those bright, sunny but a little chilly autumn days and I hoping to get out in the garden later and have a tidy up and pop some last minute bulbs into some pots to add a little colour in the springtime.
So what's does my title mean then, well I have a couple of questions for you relating to blogger........
1) replying to comments - we all love it when followers leave us a comment on our blog and I do try and reply to as many as I can, BUT, and here is
one of my question,
is it better to reply by email (for those of you with no reply blogger email addresses see question 2)
do I reply using the reply box after the comment and hope that the person who left the comment pops back and sees it (is there anyway or be notified that your comment has had a reply) There seems to be lots of questions in this question!!
2) Are you a no reply blogger?
Up until now I have been using the email way of replying to a comment BUT sometimes I can't reply as the return email address is no reply@blogger which means that if I do reply the email just disappears into the ether and never reaches its destination. Now I know many of us want to keep our details safe on the internet but if you are a blogger and like to leave comments and would like a reply but wonder why you never get any it may just be your settings or you might not have even realised you are a no reply blogger. There are some really good blog posts about changing your settings to receive emails and your email address isn't shown it just says "email" under the contact part of your profile. I just searched "no reply blogger" on google but here are a couple of links to some blogs that seemed to explain it quite well HERE and HERE.
Hopefully between us we can find the answers or solutions to these questions.
