Well, that was a pain in the butt.
Apparently, Google has recently decided to mess with my settings and has made me a no-reply blogger. All this came down the pike because Google forced their Google+ account profile onto the matching Blogger account. Fine by me. People can see my Google+ page because they know me on the blog. I'm good with that.
But they default you back to no-reply commenter. And there is no way to fix that.
Not cool, Google.
So I had to revert to my old Blogger account, cutting ties between Google+ and Blogger and now I have to completely re-do my Blogger profile.
And I'm not even sure it will stick.
Please just let me know if I become a no-reply blogger again. Thank you for those of you who brought this to my attention!
