E is for Email

We're almost through the first week of the A-Z Challenge. Power to the people! In continuation of my A-Z blogging tips I'm going to be talking about allowing your readers to see your email.

I know what you're thinking. "I don't let people see my email becasue I'm afraid of my privacy being compromised and spam." In the year that I've had my email visible I've gotten 1 spam email that I think came from blogger. ONE in a year. Seriously, who can't handle that?

Let me tell you why it's awesome to have your email visible.

1. If you have your email turned on and you leave me a comment, I'm going to email you back. If you leave me a question you can be sure it'll get answered becasue I'll be emailing you. Plus, you can respond back without having to visit my blog again. It's leaves the comment section uncrowded and you can say things that you don't want everyone to see.

2. If I want to get in touch with you and ask you for a guest post/ interview/ advice/ award I can just email you. I've found opportunities that I would have otherwise missed by having my email turned on.

3. You'll suddenly find other bloggers responding to your comments through email. You'll be surprised how much I've learned and benefited from conversations with other bloggers.

It's really not a big deal to turn on email. I've yet to hear of anyone getting hacked and a good portion of friends have it on. The benefits are worth it.

So how is it done? Under the settings tab in your blogger dashboard select mobile email and enter your email address, (refer to the picture below)

That's it! What are you waiting for?
