Some of you are new to blogging so this may be new to you and some of you have been doing it awhile so you’ve heard it all before but I still wanted to share.

1.) From Dashboard: Click on Edit Profile
2.) Then make sure where it says “Show my Email address” the little box next to it is checked.

If you want to Moderate your comments, it’s easy to set up.
Some of you newer bloggers may have trouble with this one but it isn’t as hard as it may seem.
That’s all the tips for today!
I hope this helps some of you out!

If there is something that you would like me to discuss, just leave me a comment.
