Blogger Questions & Who Are You?

Two posts in one day.  Aren't you guys lucky? ;)  If you missed my So What Wednesday post from this morning, check it out here.

You'd think since I've been blogging for over a year now I'd know what I was doing, right?  Wrong.  I've definitely come a long way, but there are still some things I don't know how to do and can't figure out.  So I thought the best way to figure them out would be to ask my wonderful blog friends.  Who can help me out with these three things?

1.  I want to be able to reply to your comments and have you actually see my replies.  When I reply on other people's blogs and they reply, I get an email with their reply.  When I reply to your comments on here, it just shows up on my blog like a regular comment, which I'm assuming most of you never see because why would you come back and read the same post again?  So my question?  How do I set it up so my replies will go to you as an email?

2.  How do I unfollow blogs?  My blog list is so long and there are quite a few that either I don't read anymore or they don't really update anymore.  I'd just like to do a little clean up and can't find how to do that.

3.  How do I schedule posts?  I usually have posts written ahead if time and don't always have a chance to get on here to post them in the mornings so scheduling them to post automatically just makes sense.  If only I knew how.


Since I'm always going on and on about my babies and a bunch of other random crap, today I want to know about you!  I want to know who's all reading this little ole blog every day :)

All you have to do is leave me a blog comment below with the following things:
Who are you?  

Do you blog, too? Leave me your link!  I want to follow you!

Do you remember how you found my blog? A link-up? Another blog?

How long have you been reading?

What keeps you coming back to my blog?

What would you like to see me blog about more?

What is something we have in common?

Tell me a fun fact about yourself!

Come on, play along.  Please?  Can't wait to read your answers :)

Oh, and last call for my Thirty-One giveaway on my Facebook page.  It ends tonight so request to join my group here and get your entry in!

  1. Amy, I have the same questions as you, so if you find the answers to #1 & #2, could you do a follow-up post on it?

    I can answer your #3, which is crazy, because I always turn to you with my blogger questions. :) To schedule a post, you just go in to where you are typing it up. Over on the right side where it says "Post Settings" you will see "Schedule" right under "Labels". That is where you can set-up your post to go when you want. HTH.

    I have been reading your blog since you started. I love that we are getting to know each other so much better, especially since we grew up across the road from one another and went to school together and really didn't know much about each other. I consider you a good friend now, and I love reading each and every one of your posts. :)

    1. I will definitely let you know if I get answers to the first two.

      Wow, how did I miss the Scheduling button over there? Thanks :)

      Thanks for playing along with my questions. I'm so glad we are friends now too and that Thirty-One and now our blogs brought us closer together :)

  2. I'm not sure this is what you mean, but to remove blogs from your "my blog list" you can go to "layout" and then where you see the blog list click "edit" and you can delete them that way by clicking an "x" I believe.

  3. Oh, and I think I started reading your blog after you messaged me about my blog, right? haha...seems like a long time ago! We have adorable little girls in common :-) And I loved reading your Tot School posts---can't wait to start seeing those again! And a fun fact about myself....hmmmmm.....well, I love to use lots of exclamation points and now I can't use them without thinking about you!!!!! (I added some extras just for you LOL)

    1. Hahaha, you and those exclamation points! Yours was the first blog I found and you were my inspiration for starting my own blog. So it's all your fault! :)

  4. Hi! For the first question, you can reply by email from the email that is sent to you when someone comments on your post. So when you read the email and hit "reply" it will automatically set the email to go to the email address they have set up on their profile. That's why it's so frustrating when people don't have their emails set up on their profile! Then you get a really great comment and can't respond! Okay so I'm bad at explaining, but basically, when you get an email saying you have a comment, just hit reply and you're all set!

    For number 2, when you're on your blogger dashboard halfway down all the way to the right (right above where the first blog showing up on your reading list is) there is a link that says "View in google reader" and right next to it is an asterisk looking button. If you click that you can manage your reading list and unfollow blogs!

    She answered number 3 above, but I just want to add that after you have chosen when you want it to post you do still hit publish! I used to just hit save, and couldn't figure out why it didn't work! Hope these help!!

  6. Well I think everyone got your 3 questions answered it looks like. Which im glad, cuz I was wondering about 1 and 2 too!

    As for the questions, im lacie! I know you have been to my blog a few times ;) but I started reading your blog a long time age. I don't exactly remember but it was before Kyla turned one I know that. I found your blog kind of in two places, one was through shawna @girls just wanna have fun. And if I remember right you were on the January baby board at babycenter. I love reading your blog & I keep coming back because you have adorable children. Also, Kyla is just about the same age as Hudson so its fun to see what she is up to. My favorite of your posts are the tot school! It gives me motivation and I can see things I can work on with Hudson.

    Oh, and a fun little fact about myself, I read your blog daily! I feel somewhat like a blogger stalker though, because I read your blog at work, but I can't log into blogger and comment at work. So its hard to get time after work to comment. But I had to make time today ;)

    1. Thanks for playing along Lacie :)

      Tot School posts will be coming back this week and I'm so excited! I love reading other blogs that share what they do with the kids to get new ideas. I don't do anything too creative, but it's fun to document it all.
